For students who are seeking an education that provides career training rather than simply general knowledge, Provo College is an excellent choice. Established in 1984, the college’s mission is to prepare its students for careers, offering specialized training programs as well as courses of study that result in the earning of associate’s degrees.

Originally, Provo College was known as The Dental Careers Institute, with the school’s focus being to provide training for those interested in entering the field of dentistry and dental technician work. As the school decided to expand its programs, it made the choice to change its name to The Advanced Careers Institute, and then finally simply Provo. Currently, students can choose between a number of programs besides those simply related to dentistry. Aside from a regular associate’s degree, students also have the option of earning an Associate of Applied Science degree, an Associate of Science degree, and a number of different diplomas and certificates.

Provo College is divided into five different schools: the School of Health and Wellness, the School of Business, the School of Design and Technology, the School of Justice, and the School of Healthcare. Courses of study in all different areas are not just limited to daytime hours and traditional pacing. A number of different adult education opportunities are available, from online courses to fast-track nights and weekends, it is easy to supplement one’s education with extra classes and be that much more desirable of a job candidate, thanks to the system at Provo College.

Among the most popular areas of study at Provo College are the Criminal Justice program, Dental and Medical Assisting, Nursing, Graphic Design, and Office Administration. Instructors at Provo College take great care to educate students on pertinent, up-to-date technology and procedure so that they are that much more equipped to join the workforce immediately after earning degrees.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Students applying to Provo College can rest assured that the process will be straightforward and stress-free, thanks to the college’s well-trained admissions staff. Students are highly encouraged to meet with members of the admissions office for any questions they might have, and to go on a tour of the school, learning more about its facilities and programs. Before completing the Admissions Application, students should fill out their Student Questionnaire and Enrollment Agreement forms. In addition to completing the Admissions Application, which can be filled out online or on paper, it is important to include a copy of one’s high school transcript or GED, along with a nonrefundable application fee.

Provo College runs on a semester schedule, meaning that students should have all of their materials in before the start of the semester when they wish to commence attending classes. Certain programs at Provo College might require more than simply the general application and high school diploma/equivalency, so prospective students should be sure to check either with the admissions office or with department heads for more details.

Financial Aid

Many students who attend Provo College receive financial assistance in some form of financial aid or another. The college has its own financial aid program, meaning that students who have completed the FAFSA can seek aid from the college, as well as from the state and from the country. The most important step towards getting the ball rolling on financial aid is to fill out the FAFSA, checking in with the Financial Aid Office in case there are any questions. If guidance is required for the paperwork, that’s no problem for Provo at all—appointments can be made with Financial Services Representatives during office hours, and they will take great care to assist with all of the steps of the application process.

After completing the FAFSA and the rest of the financial aid checklist, someone from the Financial Services office at Provo will contact you to go over your Tuition Planning Worksheet, which details the different forms of aid that you are eligible to receive as a student at Provo. This is extremely helpful for those students who are planning their budgets and deciding whether or not they need to continue working while attending classes.

With so many students from a variety of backgrounds, student life at Provo is slightly different than at many other two-year colleges. For one, the school’s various campuses are commuter-only, meaning that there is no on-campus housing. For another, since so many people are attending classes part-time while working or raising families, on-campus activities and organizations are limited, with many students busy enough juggling the world of work with the world of education.

Student Enrollment Demographics


While students at Provo College do play the occasional pick-up basketball or soccer game, there is no official sports team on campus, and no official sports program.
