PROGRAMS

The School of Aviation Sciences offers a Bachelor of Science in Aviation Science in Professional Pilot, Aviation Management, and Aerospace Technology Management. UVU Aviation Science offers an Associate in Applied Science in Aviation Science and an Associate in Science in Aviation Science Each associate degree requires the completion of a commercial pilot certificate.

365体育直播投注Students graduating with the associate degree in Aviation may transfer to any of the Bachelor of Science options.

An overall grade point average of 2.0 (C) or above is required for graduation. A grade of C- or better must be achieved for credit in any aviation science course.

Note: All aviation science majors are required to use the Bedford Handbook in their first semester of study. Aviation Science students are expected to comply with APA standards in all upper-level aviation science courses.

Bachelor of Science, Aviation Management

The Bachelor of Science in Aviation Management degree is designed to produce graduates with a combination of industry knowledge and general management skills applicable in any segment of the aerospace field. In addition, they can obtain direct experience and certifications that will propel them toward their chosen career path. Careers in aviation administration include: Airline, corporate aviation, fixed base operations, and airport management. The Bachelor of Science with an Aviation Administration emphasis does not require pilot certificates or any medical certificates.

Bachelor of Science, Aerospace Technology Management

The Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Technology Management degree prepares certified Airframe & Powerplant technicians for career progression into leadership and managerial roles needed in a wide variety of areas not only in aviation, but the entire aerospace industry. This emphasis is designed to prepare students for careers as professionals with air carriers, business aviation, general aviation, defense, unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and space. Specific career pathway tracks can be found on the UVU aviation website. 

FLIGHT REQUIREMENTS

The UVU flight program is a demanding program and requires full commitment each semester. There are no requirements to enter the professional pilot Bachelor of Science degree, but due to the current demand in aviation we are not able to accommodate all new students wanting to start flight training until their 2nd or 3rd semester.

365体育直播投注The on-campus professional pilot flight program is by competitive points-based application and is contingent upon completion of required prerequisites. New aviation students must meet with an aviation academic advisor before registering for courses. A class II Medical from a FAA designated Medical Examiner is required and must be completed prior to applying to the flight training program.

In addition to UVU tuition, students training at the UVU flight school will pay flight course fees to cover costs associated with the required flight training. UVU local flight students are eligible for an increased budget with the cost of attendance (COA) for private (alternative) loans. Students must be enrolled in the appropriate flight course section to qualify for a COA appeal for private student loan based on these flight costs. For more information regarding student loans, please contact the UVU financial aid & scholarship office located at the main UVU campus.

Students for whom English is a second language are conditionally admitted but must demonstrate acceptable level of English skills prior to beginning flight training. New students may be required to meet additional English language proficiency standards set by the school and determined through both oral and written testing.
