There's nothing quite like reading a job description, realizing you were made for it, then further down reading "college-level education required".

USU brings higher education to you, no matter where you live or your circumstance.

You can attend one of our residential campuses in Logan or Price for a more traditional college experience and student life, or attend any of our Statewide Campuses throughout Utah, including right here in the Uintah Basin. Or, if you’re looking for a fully-online, at-your-convenience program, check out our award-winning online programs.

Now is the best time to get ready for college. Make sure to do your best in school, explore careers you might be interested in, try different extracurricular activities, and become familiar with all the opportunities awaiting you at USU.

Meet with your high school counselor.

Counselors help you set goals and plan your high school courses to give you the skills and best possible advantage as you prepare for college. 

Take honors, AP, or concurrent enrollment classes.

These classes not only prepare you for more rigorous college courses, they also count toward your college credit load and are less expensive.

USU Concurrent Enrollment

Prepare for and take the official ACT/SAT college entrance exam.

Your test score determines your admission status and determines your scholarship qualification. Take the test as early and as often as possible.

Explore your options and tour campus.

Even though your intended major might be available at multiple colleges, it’s important to find the right fit for you and your educational and career goals.

Campus Tours

Know deadlines for admission, scholarship, and financial aid.

Missing deadlines can delay your admission and cost you money in lost scholarships and financial aid opportunities.

USU Office of Admissions

Plan on how to pay for college.

There are multiple ways to pay for college. Don’t delay your preparation and miss out on opportunities.

Big Blue at USU Uintah Basin

Thanks to USU's statewide system, Carson was able to save money attending the Uintah Basin campus for his first year while preparing to attend the Logan campus as a sophomore. He was able to still enjoy the typical college experience including True Aggie Night, Watch Parties and other themed USUSA events while accessing the same USU student resources to ensure his success.
