COVID Testing Required for Summer Student Re-entry

 


We’re so excited students will be returning to in-person classes and labs this summer at all Salt Lake Community College campuses. We want to ensure that the college continues to provide the safest learning environment possible as the COVID-19 pandemic extends into its second year.


We have been fortunate that SLCC’s positivity rate has been low since returning to our classrooms. Part of the reason for that low rate has been our vigilance in testing students, staff and faculty and catching cases and isolating them before they turn into an outbreak on campus. On a related note, SLCC will continue, until further notice, to enforce staying masked while indoors with others or when in close proximity to people outdoors on all of its campuses.


We have been asked to continue our testing efforts at least into the summer term. That means any student attending at least one in-person class per week on any SLCC campus must be tested early in the semester. The college will be doing focused testing of specific groups throughout the summer as needed (you will be notified if you are in that group).


The schedule for Summer COVID-19 testing is as follows:


Re-entry Testing: May 18-28


Locations and times:

  • Jordan Campus HTC, 233 – Tuesdays, May 18 and 25, 1-6 p.m.
  • Taylorsville Bruin Arena Ticket Booth – Wednesdays, May 19 and 26, 1-6 p.m.
  • South City Campus, 1-110 – Thursdays, May 20 and 27, 1-6 p.m.
  • Miller Campus, PSET, 207 – Monday and Thursday, May 17 and 20, 5-7 p.m.


Students are still being rewarded with $10 on their One Card after they complete a COVID test. Appointments can be made via our online test scheduling tool


We are looking forward to a safe and productive summer, and we can’t wait to see everyone’s faces (most of, anyway)!


Remember – classes begin May 17, and the last day to add classes is May 25!


Thank you!

  The year 2021 is finally here! SLCC is excited to have students back on campus this spring, and we are looking to get the semester off to a safe and healthy start.

College Celebrates New Student Center at Jordan Campus

The sun was out, and spirits were high as Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) celebrated the new Tim and Brenda Huval Student Center at the Jordan Campus in West Jordan.   A group of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community partners cheered as members of the Huval family and SLCC student leaders joined SLCC President Deneece G. Huftalin and 2020-21 SLCC Student Association President Emily Hernandez Alzamora in cutting the ceremonial ribbon of blue and yellow stethoscopes, officially opening the doors to the new Huval Student Center. “This is what happens when you listen to students,” Huftalin said. “Today I’m thrilled that their vision is fulfilled.” More than a decade ago, SLCC student leaders identified a need for a place at the Jordan Campus where students could gather, study and collaborate. That need became a student-funded project resulting in the new 41,000-square-foot center that provides student support services and promotes a sense of community among students, especially

COVID-19 Testing for Students at SLCC

The following email sent to all current SLCC students was updated Dec. 4, 2020.  Dear SLCC Students,   I am asking for your help. It’s no secret that Utah is in crisis due to the massive, recent surge in COVID-19 cases. This surge is creating a dire situation for our hospitals where their ability to provide emergency treatment or intensive care is becoming severely limited.    As a student at Salt Lake Community College, you have an extraordinary opportunity to help reverse this troubling trend and have a real and positive impact on the health of all Utahns. Since many of you are already coming to campus, and so many in your age group are asymptomatic, SLCC is joining other Utah colleges and universities to test all college students attending in-person classes this fall. Here’s how it will work: Students who are 18 or older and who attend at least one in-person class this semester are being offered tests, which should be done every 14 days.  Testing will take place at the Taylorsville
