The University Experience

The University Experience, (“U Experience”) provides  SLCC students with an opportunity to become fully engaged in the next steps along their academic journey. The “U Experience” programming component provides students with opportunities to visit various colleges and universities across the southeastern and southwestern regions of the United States. While visiting the university, students will receive information specific to transfer students, i.e, academic advising, admissions, scholarships, degree programs, housing, etc. As an additional component of this program, SLCC  students will engage in both a cultural experience and a service learning project, unique to each college and university’s origin city.
