FY 2016 Appropriation

In 2006, USU restructured the existing Continuing Education organization and created a university regional campus system, which includes distance education. The reporting line moved to the Provost's Office and reinforced the concept of one university, one faculty, one degree, and one curriculum.

Area regional campuses and distance education centers offer USU academic courses and degree programs in underserved and rural communities. USU has four line items for the regional campuses and distance education centers, one of which is the USU Tooele Regional Campus, which also includes the USU Salt Lake Center.
