About Our Staff
Academic Programs

Academic Programs is part of Continuing Education at the University of Utah. We provide community members, faculty/staff, and students with noncredit opportunities to sit in and learn at a regular University course. Students can take classes without being admitted to the U, at a fraction of the cost, and can learn without the stress of grades.

We are committed to providing a quality learning experience for our students. If you have ideas for new course offerings or concerns about a class you are currently attending, we’d like to hear from you.
