deadline change for Confirming Your Intent to Enroll & paying your deposit:

Due to ongoing concerns and the changing environment surrounding COVID-19, we understand admitted students may need a little extra time with their college selection process.  To help ease some of the anxiety our future students are feeling right now, the University of Utah is extending the deadline for admitted students to confirm their intent to enroll and pay their enrollment deposit from May 1, 2020 to June 1, 2020. More information about the enrollment confirmation and deposit process can be found at

Events & Tours Update:

Due to ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19, the Office of Admissions is canceling the events, tours and visits until April 17.  After detailed and thoughtful discussion, we believe this is the best decision for our future U students, their families and our staff. We want to assure you that the University of Utah is monitoring developments closely, following the guidance of various public health authorities, and actively preparing contingency plans for any future event cancellations. We understand that this is an important time in your college decision making process and we are actively working on alternative ways for you to connect with the U and receive answers to your questions and any additional information you need at this time.  We encourage you to periodically visit our website  for updates and additional information regarding these alternate opportunities.

The following events are canceled:

All on-campus tours and visits.
All Future Freshman Fridays
Swoop Into the U (on-campus) - March 26, 2020
Admitted Student Out-of-State Receptions:
  • Anaheim – March 17, 2020

  • Carlsbad – March 19, 2020

  • Thousand Oaks – March 21, 2020

For those students who are still hoping to learn more about our university, we will soon host virtual admission information sessions that include the opportunity to have questions answered by an admission representative and a current undergraduate student. Check our website later this week for additional information regarding virtual events.
