Virtual events:

Although we were hoping to see you on campus, due to concerns regarding COVID-19, we have moved all our events online. You can find our virtual event schedule here.

LATE application FEES:

Late application fees for undergraduate applicants have been suspended.

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 events, tours and visits until June 1.  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.

Orientation updates

Due to the changing nature of COVID-19, New Student Orientations for summer and fall 2020 will be facilitated virtually via canvas. If you have already registered, please check your UMail for further instructions.
