The certificate of completion program will begin in January 2013. Students can now apply for the program. Courses will be offered online and will have flexible scheduling so that students will be able to complete the program in one year.

The College’s Health IT program will provide training in transferring health information on medical records to Electronic Health Records (EHR), Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and security systems, and the new ICD10 medical coding.

This new program will prepare students for new jobs in the medical industry and offer career advancement and improved earning potential for those already working in the industry.

This program is administered through the Utah WERKS (Workforce Education & Retraining for Knowledge & Skills) program. Utah WERKS is a consortium of six colleges and universities in Utah that has received funding from the U.S. Department of Labor under the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grants program.  


The purpose of the grant is to expand and improve the State of Utah’s ability to deliver education and career training programs that can be completed in two years or less for workers who have lost their jobs or are threatened with job loss as a result of foreign trade.

All SLCC departments and programs, including faculty and staff, are encouraged to support and visit the day of the event.

HB 261 and HB 257 Frequently Asked Questions

Dear Faculty, Staff and Students: The Utah Legislature recently passed two bills that significantly impact higher education:  HB 261  Equal Opportunity Initiatives and HB  257  Sex-Based Designations for Privacy, Anti-Bullying, and Women’s Opportunities. Salt Lake Community College is deeply committed to our students, faculty, and staff. We strive to be a place where all are welcomed and respected. While there are many unknowns about the ultimate effect these bills will have on some student and staff support programs, be assured that SLCC will maintain an environment where all can find success and feel a sense of belonging. In the coming months, college leadership will work to gain clarity and determine the changes necessary for legislative compliance.

The Center for Prior Learning Receives an Honorable Mention

Today, SLCC's Credit for Prior Learning department received an Honorable Mention from the  Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL ) and the  Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education  for its intentional approach and for expanding student options to receive credit for prior learning.  Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)  allows students to obtain college credit for knowledge and skills acquired outside of the traditional academic environment. This is exceptionally beneficial for adult learners, who, according to CAEL, have a 17% higher chance of graduating compared to those adults who don’t earn credits through prior learning programs. The CPL department at SLCC was created in 2020 and since then the volume of students served has grown as the department continues to expand. To be eligible for CPL, students must be working towards a degree, certificate, or apprenticeship. Director of Credit for Prior Learning at SLCC, Andrea Tipton, mentioned feeling stunned and fla
