Applying for Admission
There are a few questions on the admission application that can be stumbling blocks for students without documentation. Here is some advice on how to answer these questions.
Social Security Number – SLCC asks for a Social Security Number on the admission application in order to match your admission to the College with your financial aid request. Since students without documentation do not qualify for federal aid or state aid in Utah, you do not need to provide a Social Security Number on the admission application.
Check the box, “I don’t have one” next to the Social Security section of the Application for Admission. Students are not required to fill in the Social Security Number in order to continue with the application.
Driver License Number – SLCC asks for a Utah Driver License number or a Utah State ID number on the admission application. Please note a Utah Driving Privilege Card is not a Utah Driver License. If you don’t have a Utah Driver License or Utah State ID number, just indicate “No” on the application. The “No” responses will trigger your status as a nonresident student. Later you will have an opportunity to establish residency through the HB 144 waiver process.
Students with Social Security and Driver License numbers issued under DACA status should visit the Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
School of Applied Technology
The School of Applied Technology provides high-quality career and technical education to individuals seeking job skills for quick entry into the workforce. The School of Applied Technology also offers three levels of English as a Second Language (ESL) instruction that lead to vocational training or college level classes. No minimum English proficiency is required to enter ESL classes. Students participate in the Integrated Learning Lab which focuses on the individual needs of the students. ESL classes include intensive practice in reading, writing, grammar, listening, vocabulary, pronunciation, conversation, and computer-aided instruction.
Tuition is based per clock hour. High school students attend for free. There is not a differential fee for resident and non-resident students.
The SLCC Concurrent Enrollment Program partners with high schools to extend the privilege of college-level coursework to motivated high school students. Upon successful completion of each course, students can earn both high school and college credit.
High school juniors and seniors, regardless of residency status, who have successfully completed the prerequisite high school course work and SLCC placement test are eligible to register for concurrent enrollment courses. Sophomores must be preapproved to take a concurrent enrollment course. Our experience suggests that a student with a minimum of a “B” grade point average and the motivation to work hard can succeed at SLCC. This program is designed to meet the needs of most college-bound students who are seeking an academically challenging course of study.
The College does not verify residency status for concurrent enrollment students taking classes at their high school. Concurrent enrollment is an excellent option to earn college credit at $5 per credit hour.
