Southern Utah University participates in the Interstate Passport Network, a network of regionally-accredited institutions that agree to transfer completed general education requirements as a block in a seamless and efficient process among its members. Students who transfer into Southern Utah University with a Passport from another Network-member institution will not have to repeat or take additional courses to satisfy lower-division general education requirements. Earning a Passport recognizes that a student has achieved learning outcomes in the following nine knowledge and skill areas, which all Network member institutions agree are consistent with their own general education learning outcomes:

Foundational Skills: oral communication, written communication, quantitative literacy

Knowledge of Concepts: natural sciences, human cultures, creative expression, human society and the individual

Cross-cutting Skills: critical thinking and teamwork/value systems.
