  • Utah Valley University: UVU charges $15.00 per credit for class credit. This is a three-credit class. So tuition will be $45.00 (there is a one-time admission fee of $35.00 if you have never taken a class from UVU).

If you plan on taking this course and receiving the Utah Gifted and Talented Education Endorsement, you must receive college credit, you must register through UVU for the class by carefully following the attached instructions.  If you have previously completed the admission process, then all you need to do is go online, follow the registration instructions on page 2, and then pay the course registration fee.  If this is the first UVU endorsement class that you have taken, then you will need to first complete the admission instructions and then register for the class.  Register NOW since you have only 3 weeks from the start of class to complete the registration process.
