However, if you experience problems, the Student Success and Registration Offices will not be open until 8:00 am on registration dates. You can call 283-7146, 283-7141, 283-7142, 283-7143, or 283-7145 after 8:00 am.

Priority II: Wednesday, March 19
Beginning at 6:00 pm -- all students who have 0 or more credit hours.

Priority III: Monday, March 31

Concurrent Enrollment and On-Campus High School Students

If you have Snow College earned hours, you can register with your priority if you have seen a Snow College advisor and been re-admitted. All high school students MUST be re-admitted each semester prior to registration by the Admissions Office. Call Admissions at 283-7144. Advising is required before students can register. Contact the Advisement Office at 283-7313 for an appointment.


New and Transfer Students

New and transfer students may register by:
1. Scheduling an on-campus appointment in advance with the Advisement Office. Students should schedule an advising appointment as soon as they are admitted to the college by calling 435-283-7313 or e-mailing Advisement@snow.edu. (Appointments are required) During the advisement session, an advisor will help students select classes appropriate to their major, goals, and interests. Students outside of the state of Utah may call the Advisement Office to make a phone appointment.

Advising

You must be advised before you can register. For an appointment for in-person advising, contact the Student Success Office at 435-283-7313. We strongly encourage fact-to-face advising! During your advising appointment, an advisor will help you select a class schedule that is appropriate to your major, interests, and goals.

For online advising, go to www.snow.edu/advise, then go to “New Student Advisement.”
If you choose this option, you will: 1) read the advising information online, 2) communicate
with an advisor via email, and 3) register for classes over the internet.

Web Registration Instructions

1. Obtain your BADGER ID number and a
Personal Identification Number (PIN) from
the Registration or Advisement Offices, so
that you can access “Badger Web” (BAD-
GER Web Registration). Please keep
these numbers secure so that no one can
access your records and violate your privacy.
You are able to access your file, check your
schedule and obtain grade information
through “Badger Web”.

2. Access the system before your scheduled
registration date and make sure you have
the correct PIN. Your PIN will begin

Tuition, Fees and Expenses

Tuition in full must be paid no later than the 5th day of the semester as designated on the official semester calendar. Students are responsible to contact the campus cashier’s office to resolve any issues or concerns related to payment of fees and tuition on time.

Payments may be made on-line (www.snow.edu) using Master Card, AMEX, Discover, or Web Check.

Student fees are refundable upon withdrawal from classes up until the day classes begin. After classes begin, fees are not refundable.

Auditing a Course
Students auditing courses are required to pay the same tuition and fees as those who register for credit and the same refund policies apply. An audit must be declared at the time of registration.

Senior Citizen Students
Senior Citizens, age 62 and over, may enroll on an audit basis in any college course offered (as space is available) by completing an Application for Admission and paying a one-time application fee. The Admissions Office will issue a registration form to be signed by the instructor not earlier than the first day of class. A $30.00 admissions fee, which covers all costs except books and lab fees, is required each semester. Senior Citizens desiring credit for courses taken should register according to regular registration policies and procedures.

Off-Campus Tuition and Fees
Most credit courses and programs that are not included in the regular fall and spring daytime schedule of the college are managed by the Continuing Education Division. Continuing Education fees cover the cost of delivering a class or program to areas or locations outside of the regular on-campus college program. Continuing Education students are not eligible for athletic events or other on-campus activities. Students attending Snow College and carrying 10 or more credit hours are eligible to enroll in the Voluntary Student Health Insurance Plan.

Financial Aid Recipients
Financial aid funding is not disbursed until the semester begins. It is the student’s responsibility to pay the student fee charge by Aug. 26.

Scholarship Recipients
Please pay the student fee charge by Aug. 26. If your scholarship covers fees, you will be reimbursed at the beginning of the semester.

Student I. D. Card
If you are a new student, you must obtain a student I.D./Activity card.
Tuition and fees must be paid before the card can be issued. A one time $5.00 fee is assessed. This card will admit you without charge to many college events and is needed to check books out of the library. Continuing students will have their I.D. cards validated when they pay their tuition and fees. The I.D. card is valid for as long as you are a student at Snow College. If you lose your card, you may apply for a duplicate for a $10.00 fee.

Refund Policy
When students request classes and register for them, they have made a commitment to pay tuition and fees and to attend class. This refund policy applies to all students.

Tuition & Fee Refund
Tuition & Fees will be refunded according to the following schedule:

Fifteen Week Semester:
21 calendar days from the first day of class

Seven Week Session:
10 calendar days from the first day of class

Fifteen-Eighteen Day Blocks
3 calendar days from the first day of class If a student changes his/her schedule by adding classes after these payment deadlines, the student has one week to pay the balance or the late fee will be assessed to the student account. Students are responsible to contact the campus cashier's office PRIOR TO these payment deadlines to resolve any issues or concerns related to payment on time of tuition and fees.

Students should complete an official Withdrawal from School Form which can be obtained from the Registration Windows, Greenwood Student Center, second floor. The official date for refund purposes shall be the date this form is returned to the Cashiers Office for processing.

Financial Aid will continue to do last-date-of attendance forms and will calculate refunds and repayments according to the guidelines in the Financial Aid Handbook.

Registration Policy -
Adding and Withdrawing from Courses

Students may add or withdraw from classes over the Internet until the first day of class or by coming to the Registration Office to process a registration form. Special notice should be given to the deadlines for adding and withdrawing from courses during the semester.

Change of Program Form
Once a semester has begun, a student who wishes to add or drop a course must file a Change of Program Form with the Registration Office. The student bears the full responsibility for acquiring the appropriate signatures and filing the form by the appropriate deadline. Failure to meet this responsibility, for any reason, may significantly impair a student’s academic progress.


Open Entry/Open Exit Courses

Many departments offer courses that have no specific deadlines by which a student must add or drop. Such courses are exempt from the calendar policies that follow.

Change Fee
Any change of program outlined below may be accomplished during the first three weeks of instruction without a fee being charged. Any time after the third week of instruction, a $25 Change of Program Fee will be charged.

Changes During Weeks 1-3

A student may add or drop a course through the last day of the third week of instruction of any regular semester by submitting a completed Change of Program Form to the Registration Office. Listed below are the signature requirements:

a. Week One -- Adding a class:
Class open = no instructor signature is required
Class closed = Instructor signature IS required
b. Weeks Two and Three -- Adding a class:
Instructor signature required for all open and
closed courses
c. Weeks One through Three -- Dropping a class:
No instructor signature required

Changes During Weeks 4-10

A student may add or drop a course from the first day of the fourth week of instruction through the last day of the tenth week of instruction of any regular semester as long as the following conditions are met:

a. The student has the signature of the
instructor teaching the course.
b. The student has the signature of his or
her advisor.
c. The student has filed a Change of
Program Form with the Registration
Office.

2. When a student drops a course during this
period, the student’s permanent record
will show a grade of “W” for the course.
A “W” does not affect the student’s grade
point average.

Unofficial Withdrawal
If a student drops a course at any time in the semester but does not file a signed Change of Program Form with the Registration Office, the student’s permanent record will show a grade of “UW” or “F” for the course. Both of these are failing grades and will drastically lower a student’s grade point average.

Special Consideration
A change of program should not be treated lightly. In every case, students, instructors, and advisors should do what is best for everyone involved. Students especially should be aware that in many courses it is difficult to make-up missed labs, lectures, or assignments. Instructors are under no obligation to add a student to any class at any time.

Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are registered until the class is officially dropped from their schedule.

Withdrawal From College
Students are permitted to completely withdraw from school until the end of the tenth week of the semester. Withdrawal forms may be obtained from the Registration Office. After the tenth week of instruction, the student will be required to show that extenuating circumstances exist making it necessary to withdraw from school. A student who is ADA qualified and wishes to withdraw may contact the Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator at 435-283-7321.

Adding and Dropping Non-Traditional Session Classes
Students may add or drop non-traditional session classes (classes which do not begin or end with regular session classes) at the Registration Office. Deadlines for adding and dropping non-traditional session classes are published in the semester class schedule. All transactions require student, instructor, and advisor signatures.

Attendance
Regular and prompt attendance is expected of every student. Instructors may vary in their individual attendance policies. An instructor may submit an administrative drop (UW) if a student:
1. Misses the first day of class
2. Ceases to attend class as evidenced by
excessive unauthorized absences, missed
exams and/or assignments.
When an administrative drop is processed, an unofficial withdrawal “UW” will be assigned to the student’s record. A “UW” is calculated as a failing grade (F) in the grade point average.

Repeating a Class
A course may be repeated to obtain a higher grade. Both courses will show on the academic record; however, only the last grade earned is calculated in the grade point average and the credit is only counted once. Retakes are limited to two per course (a total of three attempts at any one course). Once a retake has been completed, students need to contact the Registration Office to be sure the first grade is discounted from the GPA. Students must register and pay tuition for the semester in which the class is repeated. Hours earned in repeated courses may be counted toward graduation requirements only once. An exception is any course designated as “repeatable for credit” which will be given credit each time the course is taken. A course is designated as repeatable in the class schedule and/or current course catalog. Note: A course repeated at another institution cannot be used to change the GPA on a Snow College transcript.

Legislative mandate:
By legislative mandate, the State of Utah requires that students be charged the “full cost of instruction” the third time they enroll in the same course. An additional fee of $100 per credit hour may be charged for the repeated class. Subsequent registrations in the course will also be assessed the $100 per credit hour fee. This policy does not apply to classes taken prior to Fall Semester 2002. This means that beginning Fall Semester 2002 if you took the same class three times, you would be charged $100 per credit hour in addition to the regular cost of tuition. This fee does not apply to courses that are repeatable as designated in the class schedule and/or course catalog.

Student Responsibility
It is the students’ responsibility to ensure the accuracy of their schedule. Check for accuracy at each of these times:

1. At the time of registration
2. When a class is added or dropped
3. If the first day of class is missed for any
reason
4. If a class is missed for more than two
consecutive times
5. Before the last day to add or drop classes

Students may check their class schedule at any time by going to the Advisement Office, the Registration Office, the Cashiers’Office, or the Internet (www.snow.edu). If students will not be at the first class meeting for any reason, they must inform the instructor prior to class time, or they may be administratively withdrawn. (given a failing grade of “UW”)

Graduation Survey

Time Requirements Under Which a Student Graduates
A student in continuous enrollment in regular semesters (Fall and Spring) at Snow College must, for purposes of meeting graduation requirements, elect to meet requirements in effect at the time of entering the college or at the time of graduation therefrom. If enrollment is interrupted, students must meet requirements in effect at the time of reentry or the time of graduation.
Credits not earned within the five years prior to the time of graduation from Snow College may be subject to review by both the Academic Standards Committee and the departments concerned.

Transfer Credit Guidelines

  • Courses must be non-remedial.
  • A minimum grade of D- must be
    earned for the course to be transferred to
    Snow College. For English, Math and
    American Institutions requirements a grade
    of C- will be accepted in transfer.
  • An official transcript from the sending
    institution must be submitted. Transcripts
    issued to the student are not acceptable.

    catalog for detailed information.
  • Students finishing graduation requirements at another accredited institution,
    must make certain they know exactly
    which classes are needed to complete their
    degree before leaving Snow. Students
