Should you plan to serve a mission upon graduating from high school, Southern Utah University encourages you to apply for the Fall 2012 semester and then defer your enrollment for up to two-and-a-half years. This will be the most efficient option as, upon successful completion of your mission, you will be ready to enroll at SUU. Should you receive an academic scholarship to SUU, it too can be deferred. For more information, please visit: suu.edu/prostu/defer.html or contact the SUU Welcome Center: 435-586-7741 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Southern Utah University fills a unique niche within the Utah System of Higher Education. For 115 years SUU has made a tradition of placing the student first. The highly qualified faculty are attracted to and remain at SUU because of the school’s focus on teaching. Small class sizes are a top priority at SUU, and the personal attention that affords is very different than what students receive at other universities. Faculty truly get to know their students’ names at SUU and take a genuine interest in their success.
SUU’s experiential learning makes a noticeable difference in educational quality. This advantage is demonstrated with job and graduate school placement rates that are far above any national norms in areas ranging from accounting to medical school.
Recognized as one of the best in the west by The Princeton Review for eight straight years, SUU offers students a high quality private school kind of education at a public university price. Also recognized as one of the top universities in the region by U.S. News and World Report, SUU offers parents the piece of mind that their students are thriving in a safe and supportive campus and community.
