Admission steps

Step 1

Step 1 - Admission

Complete an Application for Admission and submit it with a non-refundable $40 application fee before registering for classes if you have:

  • never attended Salt Lake Community College
  • not attended for more than three years (nine terms) including the term of your last enrollment

See all Important Registration Dates

*If you have applied or attended SLCC within the past three years, submit Admission Update Form.

** Return to Step 2 after completing Admission Application.

If I've applied before do I need to reapply?
Application for admission is valid for three years (nine consecutive terms such as spring, summer, and fall) after the term of admission.

Students who do not attend classes during their term of admission but wish to attend a different valid admission term should update their application by submitting an Admission Update Application. If a student does not complete a class during the three year period of valid admission, the student must re-apply for admission by the desired term’s application deadline (and submit the $40 non-refundable application fee), meet placement assessment requirements, check for any curriculum changes that have occurred since they last attended and adhere to the graduation requirements in the current catalog. Students who complete classes during the three year period of valid admission remain eligible to register for three years (nine consecutive terms) from the term of their last enrollment and do not need to re-apply if attending in any of those nine terms but may need to complete an Admission Update Application.
