SUU and Southwest Tech Dual Enrollment Program

Student needs are changing. Nationally, there are 95 million people who have finished high school but have not finished a college credential, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education.

To address these needs, Southern Utah University and Southwest Technical College have created a unique academic partnership unlike any other in the nation. Through the Dual Enrollment Program, participating students at Southwest Tech are simultaneously enrolled at SUU, and receive university credit at no cost for specific Course Equivalencies. For students at SUU, the Dual Enrollment Program means they can enroll in certificate programs for which they earn SUU credit while paying the significantly lower tuition rate at the technical college.

SUU and Southwest Tech are committed to helping their students by providing multiple academic paths and increased opportunities for success.

How does this partnership affect you?

This partnership will give both SUU and Southwest Tech students more customizable options in terms of post-secondary higher education. The Dual Enrollment Program is not intended to be a merger of the institutions but to provide, as far as reasonably possible, all advantages of SUU and Southwest Tech to the other institutions’ students as if the two institutions were one.
