A Bachelor of Science (B.S.) demonstrates proficiency in math while a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) demonstrates proficiency in a second language.

A B.S. degree requires two Quantitative Intensive (QI) courses, and a B.A. degree requires fourth semester proficiency in a second language. For UAC students who are not a native speaker in English, B.A. langugage requirements may be waived once they complete one semester at the U of U in Salt Lake Campus. If you have questions regarding B.A. language requirements, please email WLC Undergraduate Advising ( Some majors allow you to choose to do either a B.A. or a B.S., while others do not offer you a choice.

 Some classes sometimes fill quickly, so students are encouraged to plan ahead and enroll on your assigned Registration Date to help ensure timely graduation. 

If a class is full when a student registers, wait listing allows a student to add their name to an electronic wait list and potentially be added to the class if space opens up, and they meet all the requirements. Wait listing is not a guarantee to enrollment into a class.

Wait listing is only available to classes that the department sees as benefiting from a wait list. 

Once a student wait lists into a class, it is up to them to monitor whether they are added to the class or not. If a student is added and decides they no longer want the class, they are responsible for dropping the class prior to the last day to drop deadline. It is recommended that the student drop themselves from any classes they are wait listed in once they have set their final schedule.

Make an appointment with our advisors here: 

Bring a course description and/or syllabus. We can evaluate the course based on the University's guidelines and determine if it fulfills the requirement.

UAC offers some courses that fulfill General Education requirements. It is highly recommended for students to take the courses sooner, as they will be able to focus on their major courses later on.

Students who complete their Writing (WR2) and Quantitative Reasoning (QA) requirements in their first 30 credits at the university tend to perform better in their subsequent courses and graduate sooner.

Your U of U cumulative GPA must be 2.0 or above for you to stay in good academic standing. You can view your GPA by logging on to CIS (and clicking 'Academic Summary').

 In general, tuition is due on one week from last day of drop/add date. Please read Academic Calendar here.

 All undergraduate students must apply in advance for graduation to receive a degree from the University of Utah.
