BS, Biotechnology

  1. How will my classes be taught?
    • Majority of the classes are taught in the evening at the Jordan Campus.
  2. Which programs at SLCC are good precursors to this baccalaureate degree?
    • The Biotechnology AS program is required to enter the UVU baccalaureate program.
  3. Can I be dually enrolled at SLCC and UVU at the same time; especially, if I am close to completing my associate’s degree?
    • Yes, you would need to contact UVU’s Financial Aid Office to create a “Consortium” agreement that states you will be going to school at two institutions.
  4. How long will it take to complete a bachelor degree?
    • It is best to speak to the UVU advisor to get a better estimate on the time it will take to complete a bachelor program.
  5. When should I meet with an advisor?
    • The earlier you meet with your advisor, the better. You will be able to get a map of classes you need to take at SLCC that may be prerequisites for core classes there. It is also beneficial to reach out to the advisor at the institution you are planning on attending next.
  6. What is required to apply to UVU and this program?
    • Apply to Utah Valley University for Admissions as a “transfer student”
      • On application, list B.S Biotechnology
    • Pay $35 fee and submit all official college transcripts of colleges attended
    • General education and core coursework must have a grade of “C-“ or better to receive transfer credit
  7. Is it too late to transfer into this program if I graduated with my associate’s degree at SLCC five years ago or more?
    • You are strongly encouraged to speak to the UVU advisor listed on our website to review your transcripts and provide you with a transfer guide.
