  1. What is the Snow College Financial Aid School Code?
    The financial aid school code for Snow College is 003679.
  2. When will my money be available?
    After all the necessary paperwork has been received in the financial aid office, it takes approximately four weeks to complete processing. Students need to come prepared to pay for books, housing, and other personal items. All Scholarships, Grants, and Loans will be credited to your student account. If a refund is owed you, it will not be issued until after the first day of classes. You can receive your refund check in one of two ways:
    1. Direct Deposit - This is the fastest, most accurate, and preferred way. (click here for necessary paperwork)
    2. Paper Check - Checks will be mailed to your permanent mailing address on your student record.
  3. What information is requested by Snow College?
    Once the FAFSA information is received by the financial aid office all students will be notified in writing of the additional information needed to complete their individual file.
  4. What is Default Prevention?
    Nationally, more and more students are defaulting on their student loans. To help with this, and to meet some new federal regulations, all students who want a loan will need to complete our default prevention program. When you are offered a loan you will be signed up our default prevention class through Canvas. Your loan will not disburse until you complete this class.
  5. How many classes do I need to take to receive aid?
    To be considered a full-time student you must be enrolled for 12 or more credit hours. Three-quarter time is 9 to 11 credit hours and half-time is 6 to 8 credit hours. If you are taking less then 3 credit hours no aid will be awarded.
  6. What happens if I drop a class?
    Students are paid financial aid based on credit hours. To be eligible for full grants and loans you will need to be a full-time student. Students who drop classes within the first three weeks will have their aid adjusted to match their enrollment. Students who reduce their enrollment after the third week will not be meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress and may be suspended from aid. We encourage you to plan carefully so that punitive actions are not taken.
  7. What if I am attending more than one school during the same semester?
    If a student is attending more than one school during the same semester a consortium agreement needs to be completed to ensure that a student receives their full financial aid. Only one school can pay a student financial aid per semester. If you have any question regarding a consortium agreement please contact the Financial Aid Office at 435-283-7313.
  8. What about scholarships?
    Scholarships are different from financial aid - you can be awarded both a scholarship and financial aid. For questions or to apply for a scholarship contact the Welcome Center at 435-283-7150 or visit scholarships
