College Costs

From 2007 to 2012, students in Utah's public 4-year universities and colleges saw their tuition increase from $3,816 to $5,292, according to a 2012 report by the College Board; that's an increase of 38.7% in a five year period. The increases are due in part to a decrease in per-student university spending on higher education. According to a legislative report by Higher Education, in 2013, Utah spent $600 less per student than in 2008, and that the state's funding of higher education has dropped 27%. To make things slightly more affordable, schools now offer some degrees online, meaning a student never has to set foot on campus. Lawmakers are looking for other ways to make higher education more useful in Utah. A January article in the Deseret News noted that proposals to incentivize some degree and certificate programs for careers in demand and shuttering those they consider not in demand.

College Enrollment

Like colleges and universities across the country, Utah's are putting efforts in place to boost enrollment to meet specific goals. In Utah, it is the "66 by 2020 goal" ― a plan to see two thirds of the state's adult population graduating with a degree or certificate by 2020. A recent article in the Deseret News noted that although the state had seen increases in enrollment during the recession, those numbers were dropping slightly, thanks to the economy and the lowered age requirements for missionaries of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The state is off to a good start: between 2000 and 2010, enrollment has increase from 123,046 in 2000 to 178,599 in 2010, according to a 2012 report by the College Board. To fully meet the '66 in 2020 goal, the state has developed a number of initiatives, outlined in this legislative preview document; those things include concurrent enrollments, a 15-to-finish program that encourages new college students to take 15 credits per term (full-term enrollment) and to better coordinate with the K-12 system.

Higher Education Initiatives

  1. Official State Links

  2. College Savings

    • Utah Education Savings Plan: UESP is the state's official (and only) college savings plan. Funds in this plan can be used for educational expenses like books, tuition, room and board for those who attend at least half time, at any college, university or technical school that qualifies. There are 14 different plans to choose from and Utah residents can get a state income tax credit for annual contributions.
  3. Education Nonprofits

    • Utah Women in Higher Education Network: This network is a branch of the American Council on Education (ACE) Women's Network. UWHEN, as it is known, was created in 2010 to provide information to individuals in higher education about policies, issues and research that affect women's education.
    • Utah Women and Education Initiative: This program began in 2008 as a research project to explore issues that kept women from enrolling in higher education. After the 2-year research collection project had ended, the government created the Utah Women's College Task Force to create recommendations to encourage more women to enroll in higher education in Utah and the initiative took over implementation of those recommendations.
    • Western Interstate Commission on Higher Education: Utah has been a member of this commission since 1953. WICHE offers a student exchange program that helps lower costs for Utah residents to attend college in other states.
  4. Higher Education News

    • UHEAA Prepare and Pay for College Blog: This publication provides information to parents and students who want to attend college, about steps to take to prepare and how to pay for college.
    • Utah Education Issues: This blog focuses on education policy in Utah.
    • Utah Foundation Blog: The Utah Foundation discusses education policy and how implementation of those policies affect education in the state.
