Project Description

Salt Lake Community College offers 106 credit certification programs, 32 degree programs, and 29 noncredit certification programs at its campuses across Utah. As the primary post-secondary provider of career and technical education in Salt Lake County, SLCC’s programs produce more than 27-percent of Utah’s career and technical education graduates.
