Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if BEAU is right for me?
If you have a strong passion for arts and entertainment and a desire to turn it into a career, BEAU may be a good fit for you. Our students come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Our classes are small and our courses are hands-on. To learn more about our programs and how they align with your career goals, please contact our admissions representative.
Is BEAU an accredited university?
BEAU is nationally accredited by Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS) to offer associate and bachelor’s degrees.
Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools (ACICS)
We want you to know that we are in the process of transitioning to a new accreditor, the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).
Our current accreditor ACICS lost its recognition on December 12, 2016, and is pursuing legal action in federal court to attempt to overturn that decision. ACICS is also seeking regulatory solutions through a new petition for recognition to be considered later this year.
The U.S. Department of Education has recognized Broadview University as an institution in good standing and has stated that we remain provisionally accredited by the Department of Education.
We have until June 12, 2018, to be accepted by a new accreditor and applications, along with initial visits, have been completed with ACCSC to support that transition. While we cannot guarantee we will be accepted by the June 12, 2018 deadline, our applications are in process and currently we are on schedule to be accepted.
It is important to note, we must make this transition to another recognized accrediting agency by June 12, 2018, in order to for our students to be eligible to continue participation in Title IV, HEA programs. In addition, any student at our schools having a complaint relating to Title IV eligibility or administration, the quality of education received at our school, or otherwise relating to the accreditation standards at ACICS can submit that complaint to our school using the complaint procedure as published in our catalog and/or submit the complaint to any of the following agencies:

Can I take classes in other programs?
Unless enrolled in a program that requires you to complete program electives, students cannot take classes outside of their program. Students are, however, more than welcome to pursue a second degree upon completion of their first degree.
Do I need a parking pass?
At this time, students, faculty and visitors do not need a parking pass. We advise that you park in the lots surrounding BEAU (North, East, and South sides), as you may be towed if you park in the lots surrounding the City of South Salt Lake building. BEAU is not responsible for any lost or stolen goods while parking in our lots.
When is the campus open? Am I allowed to use the facilities after hours?
BEAU is a 24-hour campus and current students are permitted to use the facilities at any time. Access to the campus after hours will require an activated key card. Key cards can be obtained through the front desk. Student looking to use the main recording studio will need to make arrangements with Bruce Kirby.
What is an official transcript and how do I order one?
An official transcript is Broadview University’s certified document of your academic record. Official transcripts are printed on high-quality paper with a water-mark background and signed in ink by the registrar’s office.
