How It Works

Follow these simple steps to kick-start your education - 

Choose the right program for you - either Concurrent Enrollment (for Utah public school students) or our global Early College Online program (for students who are homeschooled, in private/charter schools, outside Utah, or International).

  • Take a few courses:

    Find classes that interest you. SUU courses are transferable to high schools and other colleges and universities around the world.

  • Complete a General Education (GE) Certificate of Proficiency:

    Complete 30 credits in core and breadth content that fulfill the general education requirements at universities. Use this GE Worksheet to see what's required and track your progress - fill it out by making a copy.

  • Complete an Associates Degree (AS):

    Complete 60 credits for an Associates of Science degree from SUU. Complete classes required on the GE Worksheet and add other elective courses or general ed classes to meet 60 credits.

Discuss your GE class choices with your high school counselor.
