What is the Snow College Financial Aid School Code?
The financial aid school code for Snow College is 003679.
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:
- Direct Deposit
- This is the fastest, most accurate, and preferred way.
(contact Snow College Business Office for necessary paperwork)
- Paper Check - Checks will be mailed to your permanent mailing address on your student record.
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.
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.
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. Less than half time is 1-5 credit hours.
No loans are awarded for less than half time students.
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.
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
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.
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
