The state of Utah is fortunate when it comes to colleges and universities. From a wide variety of remote campuses to versatile online classes, Utah encourages higher education for everyone. Utah offers Schools such as Brigham Young University (BYU), The University of Utah (UofU), Utah State University (USU), Weber State, Utah Valley University, Dixie State Collage of Utah, Salt Lake Community College (SLCC), College of Easter Utah, LDS Business College, Snow College, Southern Utah University, Utah College of Applied Technology, Westminster College, and Neumont.
However the top three schools in the State of Utah that welcome older, and non-traditional students, are Brigham Young University, The University of Utah, and Salt Lake Community college. Known for their exceptional and versatile programs, the three offer unique opportunities for the older and non-traditional students.
Brigham Young University offers a prestigious curriculum. Dedicated to educating students in all age and financial backgrounds, BYU puts forward a wide variety of classes to take at remote locations, and online. Despite these advantages, older and non-traditional students benefit the most from the excellent in class instruction. What sets BYU apart from the others is that it is run by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, it holds students to extremely high standards in both dress and morals, and however it accepts students no matter the denomination.
The University of Utah offers a recently recognized program thanks in part to their successes on the football field. The UofU also offers classes at both remote locations and online. What sets the UofU apart from the others is that it is a celebrated program than Salt Lake Community College, and is more laid back than BYU.
Salt Lake Community College offers a very diverse curriculum. In an attempt to educate as many people as possible SLCC puts out the most amounts of classes available at remote locations, and online. What set SLCC apart from the other collages are its simple admissions process, and its online assortment.
For those older and non-traditional students, the best advice I can recommend is to go into any of these three schools and work with them. Do not be intimidated by any step of the process, these three programs have people to help you with anything. Do not worry about the financial part until you have had a chance to work with the financial departments, you would be surprised what financial programs you will fit into. I have an immense respect for those attending school, and recommend it to everyone no matter the situation.
