I love this college! I have graduated in spring 2017 and still taking some classes. College offers very flexible class options. I have managed to work at two jobs while I was at the college. Beautiful library(open late), free access to fitness room, friendly student center, computer center, writing center, cafeteria, tutoring center, etc. Don’t hesitate to ask for help if you need it. If you don’t like your professors, usually there is an option to sign up for a different one.

This school makes students feel less than adult with staff that assigns high school level assignments and runs classes the same. You have to keep up a social media account as a requirement "for future employers to see what you've done". The demeaner and moral is terrible. I'm a University of Utah student and won't take classes here again. Not worth the environment. They can't even keep a vending machine running with cold water haha. Crazy

If I could give zero stars I would. The experience with them has been nothing but horrible. They're always passing the buck as to who you have to deal with and who's fault it is. We had to complete our fafsa four different times because their office staff, assigned to handle nothing but fafsa, told us three different times and ways to complete it. In the end it was out of the semester that was applicable. The fafsa office kept passing us between five different people who never answer their phone or return any calls. The fafsa office doesn't communicate with the billing office down the hall. While waiting on fafsa we would receive past due bills and even threats of collections. When we would call they would just respond to just ignore them. The billing office is horrible as well. The first month of the semester we will receive a bill with one total and then each month into the semester we would receive bills with completely different totals for the SAME credit hours. The bills would jump at an approx. rate of $200/ month. When you call them about it they always say the highest bill is accurate at its federal regulation and they refuse the adjust the total back to THEIR initial bill. In the end I could have went to any other college for the same cost and been provided a lot better quality for what was paid for.

If anyone tells you SLCC is a great place to go because it’s cheaper, they’re not doing you a favor. You get what you pay for. If I had learned that in High School I would have saved myself the pain of this place

Salt Lake Community College has done a great job of providing a good general education without costing students the rest of their life's salary. Small class sizes, excellent campus atmosphere, and flexible class schedules make this college a pleasure to attend. As a side note, there are always professors who may be more in line with one's preferences, but the majority are competent and do their jobs well. I try not to judge the tree by a couple of bad apples when the rest of the harvest is so good.
