In order to evaluate the quality of the education students receive at Snow College, each graduate is asked to take an assessment and complete a survey before graduation. The survey is an assessment of students' general opinions about the college. The results of the assessment and survey are confidential. They do not appear on transcripts and have no bearing on graduation status. The results from all students are combined to provide faculty, administration, and the Utah Board of Regents information about the knowledge and opinions of Snow College students.
Students who have completed all graduation requirements and have earned a cumulative grade point average at Snow College as follows will graduate with honors. Only courses numbered 1000 or above are counted.
Commencement is a celebration of our students' success. All candidates for graduation are invited to participate. During this ceremony, students will be recognized for reaching their goals and joining the ranks of the select number of people worldwide who have a post-secondary degree.
Commencement occurs at the end of Spring Semester and includes all students who have graduated the preceding Fall Semester and those who will graduate in the current Spring Semester, or after the current academic year’s Summer Semester. The College holds two commencement ceremonies, one on the Ephraim campus and one on the Richfield campus. The college may also have a separate convocation for the four-year degree recipients. Dates for the ceremony are determined by the established calendaring processes.
Any person who feels he or she may need special accommodations connected with the graduation ceremonies may contact the Americans with Disabilities Act Coordinator at 435.283.7321.
