Aggie Elevated 2022 Admissions
Southern Utah University
• Scholarship deadline for all scholarships, excluding the Presidential Scholarship, is March 1. This means that the Centrium, Deans, and Founder’s scholarship are all still available. If you are able to raise their GPA or ACT score to the next highest scholarship requirement by March 1, you will be rewarded the higher scholarship.
• What is your next step at SUU? 1) to pay your Enrollment Deposit. The enrollment deposit is a $100 deposit that commits them to attending SUU. The sooner you pay the enrollment deposit the better. Basically, the enrollment deposit puts you in line to receive a class schedule. Therefore, the sooner you complete the enrollment deposit, the better courses you have a chance of getting for your first semester. If you complete the enrollment deposit later, you likely will not get your ideal schedule. Once you have paid the enrollment deposit, you will need to wait to hear back from SUU. They will reach out and inform you of next steps to get registered and so forth.
• Diversity Promise Scholarship. This scholarship is available to a wide variety of students, and I encourage most to apply for it. See the attached handout and a QR code to access the application to this email.
• Set up a time to meet with SUU Financial Aid advisors. Jason and Chris are a wealth of knowledge and they will happily walk you through the cost to attend SUU, scholarship opportunities, and get you to the bottom line.

Students must have completed their admissions application and applied to our scholarships by February 1st to be considered for Fall 2022 scholarships. That means the current concurrent enrollment seniors should have updated their status from “concurrent” to “traditional” for Fall 2022. Here is a list of Scholarship Questions students could start preparing for:
• What prompted you to pursue an education at Salt Lake Community College?
• What are your educational goals?
• Talk about a personal accomplishment that is unrelated to academics but that means a lot to you.

HEERF (Higher Education Emergency Relief Funding) is scholarship money that has been granted to the institution to support students with the financial barriers to Education caused by Covid-19 pandemic.
