International Admissions

Earn your degree from a respected, fully accredited U.S. University

Each year Southern Utah University welcomes students from over 60 different countries to our campus in Cedar City, Utah. They come to take part in our 100+ nationally recognized undergraduate programs and 18 masters degree programs that are known for academic excellence. Many of our masters programs are available online for your convenience.

As an international student, you will benefit greatly from the personal attention for which the university is well known. Our small class sizes - which average fewer than 30 students in 68 percent of our courses - allow professors to work closely with students and mentor them in their studies and career plans.
