The office of Academic Programs is part of Continuing Education at the University of Utah. Our mission is to provide learning opportunities for University students close to home in their own local communities. We offer a variety of courses at the University's off-campus site in Sandy.
Many credit courses are also offered noncredit at a reduced tuition rate. Students can "sit in and enjoy" traditional University classes for a minimal fee through its "Academic Noncredit" class option. Students are allowed to register on a "seat available" basis and do not need to take exams or write papers. Further, students do not receive credit or a grade for these classes. These classes are designed to be just for the fun of it.
If you are interested, please check the class listings in our Academic Noncredit Courses. If you don't see the class you're looking for, call us at 801-585-9963 and we may be able to add it for you!
