Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017
"Starting my educational experience at Salt Lake Community college is something I recommend to everyone. It has prepared me in ways I had never thought of. The psychology department at this institution is phenomenal. Before studying education at the University of Utah , I wanted to have a back ground in psychology. My professors here have helped me to go above and beyond my own expectations. I feel as if I have excelled in psychology thus far, and now have a desire to continue studying in this field further,"

"I went to Salt Lake Community College to give my career path a jump start. I very much enjoyed going to a school where the campus is nice and works well with paying tuition with the STIL program. If they didn't have this option, I wouldn't be able to pay for college since I pay all out of pocket. I was a full time employee working a Wendy's from 5pm-3am everyday and had school in the morning. Even though it was challenging the school made me happy to wake up and start my day in classes. All my teachers were very helpful and made me enjoy going to class. At the moment I am looking to proceed at SLCC even after I graduated to finish more prerequisites to be able to apply for the Ultrasound program they offer at the college. I look forward in my future choices"

"Probably one of the best 2-year colleges in the country. The classes are usually really small, which means that you get more face-to-face time with the teacher and they can adapt to every students needs. Campuses are all over the Salt Lake Valley so I was able to pick and choose classes and times easily according to my schedule with work and other demands of life. I highly recommend this college if you are going to get your Generals done and over with so that you can go on to a 4-year college. Also, the tuition is super cheap."

Graduation Year: 2014
"Meh. None of the employees were particularly helpful, most instructors were decent enough, but trying to register and get into the classes you need was a nightmare. I was doing the biology program, and in one semester they had cell bio at one campus, then ecology at another, and then another bio class I needed offered at a third campus. To top it all off, they had the hours in the worst fashion possible. I work full time, and the hours were just so awful. One course was early morning, another was afternoon, and a the other was at night. I wasn't the only person, and biology wasn't the only program, with this kind of issue. The only reason I would consider going back here is because it's hard to find science programs online that are 1) accredited and 2) affordable."

Graduation Year: 2012
"I am a non-traditional student in that I am over 50, so I wanted to go to a smaller campus to get my feet wet for my first time in college. Salt Lake Community College fit that bill perfectly. I became part of the TRIO program and my advisor counseled me and helped me stay on track and graduate. I wanted to teach ESL but there is no specific program for that only 1 class, so I got a general AS degree and transferred to the University of Utah to finish with a BA in Linguistics, now I am enrolled at Westminster College for my Master's in teaching. My experience was a very positive one."

"Salt Lake Community College is truly a worthwhile economical decision for any student wishing to obtain a college degree or begin credits towards a degree. I began at SLCC after transferring from out of state because it was a cheaper option for me as a student than first attending a 4-Year college. SLCC had a wide variety of classes for me to choose from with some of the best professors I have ever worked with, the caliber that you would find at 4-Year institutions. I loved the small scale of the class to teachers and the wide range of extracurricular activities the school brought to my life. I also enjoyed the campus and felt it was safe and relaxing. It was definitely a highlight of my college experience and I would recommend it to anyone in the Salt Lake area, not only for its affordability, but for the well-rounded education you receive and the passionate staff members working there."
