Guest Students are defined as a student who is enrolled and completing a degree or certificate requirement at another college or university (primary Institution) and wishes to attend SLCC with the intention of transferring earned SLCC credits to their primary institution. 

Things to keep in mind:

  • Guest students are usually only attending Salt Lake Community College for one or two terms.
  • Guest Students are not seeking a degree at Salt Lake Community College and therefore, do not qualify for financial aid. (All Guest Students are placed into General Studies: Personal Interest which is a non-degree seeking non-matriculated program and degree).

Please read all the qualifications, the rules, and the process, and check for links to deadlines on the Guest Students SLCC Webpage
