Seamless Transfer

The SLCC Honors Program has an Articulation Agreement with the University of Utah Honors College (UUHC) that allows students to transfer in as an Honors student once they complete an associate’s degree from SLCC with a 3.5 GPA. Students who are not transferring to the U of U should inquire with both their transfer institution’s Admissions Office and its Honors College for details. Please see the transfer page for specific criteria.
