Top 10 Associate Degree Awarding College

number 3 degree awarding institutionSince 2004 Salt Lake Community College has consistently ranked by Community College Week each year in the Top 10 in the country for associate degrees awarded. The independent national magazine looks at data culled from more than 1,200 community colleges across 50 states by the National Center for Education Statistics through the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data Set completions survey.

The ranking demonstrates students’ determination and dedication to completing their degrees and the College’s commitment to providing high-quality educational services. Not only does the College produce more degrees than most of the nation’s two-year schools, it regularly outperforms institutions far larger in size and student population, which at the College exceeds 60,000 a year.

SLCC is an accredited, student-focused, urban college meeting the diverse needs of the Salt Lake community, in part, by being Utah’s leading provider of workforce development programs and the largest supplier of transfer students to Utah’s four-year institutions. The College is also the sole provider of applied technology courses in the Salt Lake area, with multiple locations, an eCampus, and nearly 1,000 continuing education sites located throughout the Salt Lake valley. Personal attention from an excellent faculty is paramount at the College, which maintains an average class size of 20.
