Utah Valley University Biotechnology Program

Utah Valley University offers a  Bachelor of Science in Biotechnology through extension at Salt Lake Community College Jordan campus. This is an evening program available Monday through Friday to students who have completed all certain lower division courses required  for transfer into the junior and senior level courses.  

Students who enroll in this program are Utah Valley University (formerly Utah Valley State College ) students, and will pay Utah Valley University  tuition and fees although attending courses at  SLCC Jordan campus. While completing their coursework here, they will be provided with the necessary student services through UVU and SLCC.
In addition to fulfilling various prerequisites for the Biotechnology major, an Associate of Science Degree earned from SLCC meets all general education requirements at Utah Valley University.  SLCC students may elect to complete certain required lower division courses either while enrolled at SLCC, or while concurrently enrolled in the UVU Biotechnology BS program and SLCC. (See the transfer link for further information.) Students not planning to complete an Associate of Science (A.S.) from SLCC are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor to understand the specific requirements in your individual situation.


Utah Valley University requires the application and a $35.00 application fee.  Applicants may either apply online or by contacting the Admissions office at 801-863-8466.   Official transcripts of all previous college work must be sent to UVU Admissions.  Students interested in transferring to this program are strongly encouraged to review the admissions procedures prior to application. 


Students that are attending both UVU and SLCC and plan to receive Financial Aid will need to contact Rheta McCammon at Utah Valley University about a Consortium Agreement.
