Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

What Students Are Saying

3.03 Average Rating
You can receive the same credits at SLCC that you would at a university for less than half the cost. I personally know a few people who are going to SLCC to get the associates degree then plan on transferring to a university simply because its much cheaper to do it that way. Plus you have access to the health and wellness center, free massages, free uta/trax passes and so much more, included with your student fee. for 12-18 credit hours a semester its only 1,395 for residents.

Salt Lake Community College is very affordable. Especially compared to other schools.
Kirsty from Cottonwood Heights , UT
Colleges are expensive, and Salt Lake Community College is no exception. Tuition is getting higher every year. And with the textbook and student fees, it would almost seem like students would have to pay a million dollars every semester. However, there are many scholarships out there about which few students know. Fastweb is a search engine that collects scholarship information specifically for a student and gives him/her the link to apply for the scholarship. Salt Lake Community College gives scholarships specifically for its students. The financial aid office, located on the second floor of the student center, is a good place to inquire about scholarship information, including FAFSA.

The main reason for my going to SLCC is that it is a lot cheaper than going to a University. I still plan to go to one to get my Bachelors, but SLCC is a cheaper alternative and can transfer credits to almost any other school in Utah. The lower price doesn't mean lower quality though. SLCC is rated #3 in the nation. So you get a quality education for a better cost.
McKenzie from Sandy, UT
The best part of SLCC is the low cost of tuition. Currently tuition for 12-18 credits is about $1,400. Compared to the University of Utah for example, that's about $1000-$1900 difference! Students can get a great 2-year education relatively cheap and either transfer to a 4-year college or stop at graduation. Either way they save money!
Jennifer from South Jordan, UT
Considering that SLCC is almost a tenth of the price of tuition at the state colleges, it is excellent bang for the buck. When I compare my class experiences with what friends attending the U are experiencing, SLCC's value increases exponentially. No stadium style classrooms, professors know all of their students' names by midterms, and tuition is the same for 12-18 credits, so overachievers definitely get the value for their money.
