SLCC Description

Offering the best of both worlds, Salt Lake Community College in Salt Lake City, Utah is the largest school in the state, but still manages to provide students the personal attention of a smaller school.

Academics span a broad range of disciplines and subjects, including Art History, Aviation Maintenance, Brick Masonry, Chinese, Computer Technology, Cosmetology, Film, International Studies, Medical Coding and Pyro-Technology, among many others.

Student life is also varied. At its Grand Theatre, SLCC features performances of popular and classic plays with local professional actors. There is also a film festival, a lecture series, a student-run radio station and newspaper, and a number of student clubs and organizations.

Student services also provide the full range of academic, career planning and personal resources.

However, while Salt Lake’s campus may abound with options, students are given the same amount of individual attention found at a small, private school. With a low faculty to student ratiom classes are kept small and professors numerous and accessible enough to meet privately with students as well.

While many students use their Salt Lake degree to forge a new career, a large number also transfer to such schools as Brigham Young University. Since tuition at Salt Lake is significantly lower than that of a university, attending Salt Lake for the first two years of their bachelor’s lowers student’s expenses by a lot.

Financial aid and payment plans are also available to those who qualify.

Students interested in admissions may apply online. Once admitted, all students must also take a placement test.

I chose SLCC because it was inexpensive and flexible. We have wonderful instructors and decent labs. The school as a whole understands that the majority of the student body are working, parents, etc.
