In the South Jordan area, the net cost of colleges ranges from around $2,000 to slightly over $28,000 for 2014-2015.

Highest Graduation Rate

When comparing colleges, one factor that students should consider is each school's graduation rate. NCES determines graduation rate by examining how many full-time undergraduate students complete their degree programs within 150% of normal time (for example, in six years for a four-year degree). A few schools in South Jordan have graduation rates over 50% for 2015.

  • Mountainland Applied Technology College (81% graduation rate)
