Snow College has developed specific articulation agreements with: USU, WSU, U of U, BYU, UVU, and SUU. If students know the institution to which they will be transferring, they should visit with their advisor to develop a schedule specific to that institution. If students are not sure to which institution they will be transferring or are planning to transfer out of state, Snow recommends the generic Associate of Business schedule outlined above. This schedule should meet most pre-business requirements. Students transferring to BYU or the U of U may need to meet different requirements for matriculation.

Certificate of Completion in Business:

The Certificate in Business is comprised of 30-33 credits. To earn a Certificate of Completion in Business, a student takes core business courses and then pairs with a Certificate of Proficiency in his or her area of interest. Choose from Entrepreneurship, Marketing, Business & Music Technology, Agribusiness, or Outdoor Leadership and Entrepreneurship (see next section). Students will gain entry-level knowledge, skills, and abilities related to general business theory and application. For a student completing an AS or AA degree, the Certificate of Completion in Business is an excellent choice for smart electives. This certificate would also be a great asset to someone who needs to sharpen employment skills. Students who complete the Certificate of Completion also complete a Certificate of Proficiency.

Description

Snow College offers a Farm/Ranch Management program to assist farm/ranch families in achieving their business and personal goals by improving the profit- ability of their business.

The program teaches farmers and ranchers to keep detailed computerized financial and production records and to use these records in making timely and intelligent business decisions. Some computer literacy is also taught. The focus is on education and not merely a “bookkeeping service.”

Management of a farm/ranch is primarily a decision making process.  To be successful in management and decision-making processes, the course is composed of various units taught in an organized sequence.  Approximately 135 contact hours are required to complete the program. 

Outcomes

Students who complete courses in Farm/Ranch Management will be expected to demonstrate that they:

  • Have record-keeping skills necessary for business decisions;
  • Can maintain a working chart of accounts;
  • Can post income and expenses to the accounting system using the chart of accounts;
