Resident Freshman Academic Scholarships

These scholarships are based on cumulative high school GPA and composite ACT or SAT scores.  New students must have their ACT scores reported by March 1st in order to be eligible for these awards.  If you have not taken the test before this date, please call us at 435-283-7150 and we will provide appropriate options prior to the deadline.

There is not an application for these scholarships, you only need to be officially admitted by the March 1st deadline and qualify academically.  The scholarships are available to new incoming freshmen only.

NOTE: While you may qualify for an academic scholarship, these scholarships are awarded based on available funds.  We encourage students to apply and complete the requirements as early as possible.  

Utah's College Application Week program has been so successful that record numbers of seniors are applying to Snow College! Due to this increase in admission applications, along with an overwhelming response to Snow's Academic Merit Award Program, Snow College has awarded its top level Academic Waivers in record time.  

Snow College will continue to recognize academic performance of outstanding Utah High School seniors by creating an additional awarding level called the Premier.  Any admitted student (transcript and ACT scores received by Snow and application completed) meeting the criteria for the new Premier Scholarship by the deadline of March 1, will be considered.

If you are awarded a resident freshman academic scholarship you will be e-mailed a copy of your contract. You will be required to accept the scholarship through Badger Web. By accepting the scholarship on Badger Web you are agreeing to the terms and conditions contained within the scholarship contract.  These terms bind you, the student, to the requirements of the scholarship.  

If you choose to interrupt your education for church, military service, maternity leave, or extended medical or personal reasons while the academic scholarship is in effect, you may be eligible to use the remaining portion of your award at a later time. You must complete a leave of absence form and provide the necessary support documentation prior to your absence in order to hold your scholarship. Resident Freshman Academic scholarships are typically the only deferrable scholarships. Contact the scholarship office to confirm if your scholarship is deferrable.  If you are awarded a departmental scholarship and want to take a leave of absence, you will need to contact the department when you return and re-apply for the scholarship by March 1st.
