Registration Policies

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 the first week of the semester, 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:

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

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.

* Students in iLearn Math courses may add or drop the course according to how the student is advancing in the course, with permission of the professor, through the tenth week of the semester without paying the $25 fee. 

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")

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.

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.

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.

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.
