"There’s so much help here."

"To anyone that’s on the same path that I was on, being away from school that many years, intimidated, life takes over ... I’d tell them everyone’s got a why, why you do anything. Find your why. The effect that it has on your life, economically, socially, so many different ways, it’s totally worth it. Don’t feel intimidated. Particularly with this university, coming back, there’s so much help here." - Jamal Carter

Flexible Degree Options

The University of Utah makes it easier to fit school around your life and complete your degree on your schedule:

  • UOnline offers fully online degree programs. This option is more affordable for undergraduates thanks to reduced fees and equal tuition rates whether you are a Utah resident or live in another state. See a full list of undergrad programs.
  • The Sandy Center makes it easier to get to class with evening classes and plenty of free parking.
  • Week-long intensives and "mini-mesters" let you finish a full-semester course in a much shorter time. Intensives are held on the main campus and at the Sandy Center.

"It's never too late!"

"As a new mother I was afraid that I was never going to come back because of having a family, but my advisors encouraged me even more to pursue my degree, which then fueled my desire to finish for not only myself but my new family. The only thing I regret was not coming back earlier. I made excuses, but there's no finish line when it comes to education. Once a Ute, always a Ute!" - Bernice Mauinatu
