Beginning Summer Semester 2012, applicants will only be admitted to credit programs at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) if they have earned either a state-recognized high school diploma, a state-issued General Education Diploma (GED), or an associate degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution.
Applicants who have not earned one of these credentials may only be admitted to credit programs if the Accuplacer, ACT or SAT exams place the student into college-level coursework (ENGL 1010 or higher and MATH 1010 or higher).
Applicants without a high school credential or college-level test scores may participate in noncredit programs through the School of Applied Technology (SAT) or Continuing Education with no restrictions.
Beginning July 1, 2012, federal financial aid will not be available to individuals who start a program of study and do not have a state-recognized high school diploma or state-issued GED.
SLCC offers a variety of degree options. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics, employees with an Associate’s degree earn, on average, 20 percent more than employees with only a high school diploma.
Students in SLCC Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs are highly recruited by business and industry. Job placement for graduates of the most common CTE programs are consistently well over 90 percent. In fact, many are hired before they graduate and then complete their education at company expense.
Many students who earn a two-year Associate’s degree at SLCC transfer their credits to four-year colleges or universities. SLCC has established transfer and articulation agreements with Utah System of Higher Education (USHE) institutions and a variety of other private, public, and out-of-state institutions.
