Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) is one of the largest institutions of higher learning in the state of Utah. The main campus is located in Salt Lake City, but the school has numerous campuses throughout the Salt Lake City area. The school offers two-year degrees as well as individual courses with an eye on serving the local community by providing accessible education. The school’s open door admissions policy makes classes available to almost everyone. Many students enroll at SLCC with the ultimate goal of transferring their community college course credits to a four-year institution within the state of Utah. To that end, the school works closely with both private and public universities in Utah to ensure course credits are transferrable.
Salt Lake Community College offers associate degree programs in a wide range of disciplines and vocations. The school offers academic degrees in fields such as art history, economics, and psychology. It also offers vocational programs that provide hands-on training in fields like welding, carpentry, and heating, cooling, and refrigeration technology. Some online degree programs are available as well, including associate degrees in business, criminal justice, general studies, and sociology.
Salt Lake Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. It has held this accreditation since 1969.
Admissions at Salt Lake Community College is more of an enrollment process than an application process. The school operates an open door admission policy, which allows virtually any interested party to enroll in classes. However, students must provide an application and $40 application fee to begin the admission process. Students applying for an associate degree program at the school may need to submit copies of their high school transcripts and satisfy a placement test requirement. Students must take the Accuplacer exam if they cannot provide ACT or SAT test scores that are fewer than two years old. From there, students can complete the process of applying for financial aid if necessary, meeting with an academic advisor, and registering for classes.
