Signing-up for Jumpstart Orientation

Colleagues,

You are already aware that our office has recently begun assigning Jumpstart dates to our first-time freshmen. As we have navigated this change in process, many of you, along with our orientation office staff, have noticed that some students are not fully completing the process needed to have their hold deferred.

To address this, this morning I have tweaked and clarified the Jumpstart instructions that students are receiving via email and on our website. In addition, here’s how you can help students who have questions:

  1. Review, and become familiar with, the Jumpstart instructions found at http://www.uvu.edu/orientation/jumpstart/ .
  2. Remind the student that the email they are receiving from our office will be sent to their myUVU student Gmail account (not their personal account).
  3. Remind the student that they must complete the Orgsync sign-up process for their assigned date before their hold is deferred.

Our team is going to closely monitor the effectiveness of the changes I made this morning. I’m also keeping in contact with Adam’s advising team to garner their feedback over the next week. If students continue to have difficulty navigating the process, despite the changes in messaging that I made today, I plan to revert back to a modified version of our previous sign-up process.

Please let me know if you have questions. As always, thank you for your help and support of orientation!

Best,

Student Stories of Perseverance

With graduation approaching, we know many of our students have faced significant personal and social obstacles in getting their educations. We would love the opportunity to showcase some graduating seniors who overcame huge odds.  If you could please send any names and a single sentence biography (as best you know it) of such students to me by Monday afternoon, April 3, I would greatly appreciate it.

Best regards,

Overrides for English Composition Courses

Please note the announcement below from the English & Literature Department:

Please do not refer students to the English and Literature department requesting an override for ENG1010 or ENGL2010, even if they are currently enrolled in the prerequisite at another institution.  This is to avoid any potential complication with their transfer credit equivalency and/or not meeting the minimum grade requirement.  Their transcripts must be on UVU’s system.  The English and Literature department does not approve overrides for ENGL1010 or ENGL2010.  Thank you for respecting the English and Literature department requirements.
