The institution began as St. George Stake Academy, founded in 1911 by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church). Later it became a state school of the Utah System of Higher Education. Until 2000, it was a two-year junior college named Dixie College. In 2000 the institution was renamed Dixie State College. In February 2013 the school officially became Dixie State University. In November 2021, after controversy over the use of the term “Dixie” in the school’s name, the state legislatureapproved the bill that would allow the school to become Utah Tech University. The school started using the name in Mid-May, though the legal change doesn’t occur until July 2022.

Dixie State reclassified to NCAA Division I in 2019 and joined the Western Athletic Conference(WAC) beginning in the 2020–2021 season.
