Southern Utah University is one of the premier regional public universities in the country, with the second lowest tuition among the nation’s elite 100 Best College Buys and the very best in academics, ranking in the top tier of the West’s colleges and universities for academic excellence. Nicknamed Utah’s “public-private university,” the SUU experience, while affordable, is defined by the personalized attention, hands-on experiential learning, undergraduate research opportunities, and supportive, collaborative campus community generally thought to exist only among private institutions with much higher tuition rates.
With 8,000 students on its residential campus in Cedar City, Utah, SUU is the collegiate gateway to the West’s most prized national parks and is just a short drive from year-round sunshine and winter mountain sports.
SUU has a priority admissions and scholarship application deadline of December 1, 2012 for Fall 2013 classes. All in-state and out-of-state applicants who submit their application materials by December 1 will be considered for admission as well as a variety of academic scholarships.
If you plan on serving an LDS mission prior to enrollment, we still encourage you to APPLY for the Fall 2013 term and simply DEFER your admission until your return. This will be the most streamlined and efficient process to ensure your records and financing are in order upon your return, rather than worrying about the application process during or after your mission. Apply now for a seamless entry into the SUU Thunderbird family after your mission.
