It is important to develop a balanced and coherent program of study as students work towards graduation, and all students are strongly encouraged to plan their class schedules in consultation with an Academic Advisor. These interactions will assist students to remain on track for graduation from Snow College, avoid unnecessary schedule changes, answer academic, and provide suggestions regarding major pre-requisites and transfer issues. The advisors will also talk to the students about their goals and interests and assist them in developing a plan to achieve their academic goals. They will provide suggestions regarding courses appropriate to students' goals and academic levels, inform students about Snow College academic policies and procedures as well as explain the importance of pertinent academic deadlines. It is recommended that students meet at least once per semester with an Academic Advisor. 


Students who live a considerable distance from the Snow College campus or who are otherwise unable to visit campus to meet personally with an Academic Advisor can complete a Pre-Advisement session online at   All new students would benefit from completing the Pre-Advisement session.  This brief activity introduces students to important Snow College academic information as well as the registration process.  Upon successful completion of Pre-Advisement, students will submit contact information to the Academic Advising Office. An Academic Advisor will respond to the Pre-Advisement session via email and assist students in setting up a schedule and answering any questions.

“How to” Videos: 

Several “how-to” videos are also offered on the Advisement website:  Students can quickly learn about academic advising, general education requirements, Badger mail, Canvas instructions, as well as registering for classes in a very short period of time by viewing these videos.  Viewing the “How to” videos will be a pre-requisite to a Cranium Café appointment. 

Graduation Maps (Most-Affordable Pathways): 

In response to an initiative from the Board of Regents, the Student Success Advisors at Snow College will be embracing a more student-guided effort towards completion of Associate Degrees, Associate of Applied Science Degrees, certificates, and one bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music. This effort will include strongly encouraging students to explore major and career information and instruction early on in their experience at Snow in order to declare a major by their third semester at Snow College. Degree maps (Most-Affordable Pathways or Graduation Maps) have been created to provide an efficient completion path through general education courses as well as pre-requisite majors’ courses in four semesters for associate degrees or eight semesters for a bachelor’s degree in Commercial Music and two semesters for certificates. Parents, high school counselors, or anyone having an interest in investigating efficient paths to certificates, an AS, AAS, APE, or a BS in either Commercial Music or Software Engineering can access the maps at:

15 to Finish:

On average, if students complete 15 credits the first semester at Snow College and 16 credits the remaining three semesters, they will have an associate degree in two years. Fifteen credits cost the same amount as taking 12 credits. 

Ultimately, it is the students’ responsibility to ensure that they are on track to meet academic goals, including graduation. The fact is that much of college success lies in whether students learn to access information and work within the system of the college. Advisors are here to help students learn the system. 

Additional Student Responsibilities:
  • Complete the Pre-Advisement session online (
  • Make an appointment for academic advisement 
  • Assume responsibility for and monitor academic progress while attending Snow College (with guidance from an Academic Advisor)
  • Monitor the student Badger Web account and Badger email account regularly
  • Assume responsibility for knowing Snow College rules, regulations and policies (consult Snow college catalog)
  • Verify the accuracy of student schedule immediately after registering, if a class is added or dropped, if the first day of class is missed for any reason, before the last day to add and drop a class. (Students may check their schedules at any time online or by going to the Student Success Center or the Registrar’s office)
Some Other Important Reminders for Students:
  •  Student status
    • Full-time status for federal financial aid: 12 credits per semester
    • Status for most scholarships: 15 credits per semester
  • To complete an associate degree in four semesters: Students should take on average 15 credits each semester (total of 60 credits)
  • Students receiving financial aid must be careful not to reduce their credit hour load below the minimum number of hours awarded each semester through financial aid or the amount of financial aid will also be reduced
  • Students may add classes once school starts through the end of the first full week of classes in that semester. After that, students must procure an “add” card with the instructor’s signature which must be turned in to the Student Success Center for processing
  • If a class is full, instructor permission is required with an “add” card and instructor signature which must be turned in to the Student Success Center. Instructors are under no obligation to add students to a full class 
  • If students do not attend the first day of class and did not receive instructor permission, they may be administratively dropped from that course

Academic Support

College is difficult, but the good news is that academic support is available at Snow. The best source of help is Snow College faculty. As long as students attend class, complete all assignments and readings, and put forth genuine effort, most faculty are anxious to help students outside of the classroom. To meet with faculty, students should make an appointment and/or visit them during their posted office hours. 

Snow College strongly encourages students to organize and participate in study groups for most of their classes. The Academic Advising Office offers Help Sessions led by study group leaders for some classes. The College also has a Math/Science Lab, a Writing Lab, and computer labs. For those who qualify, Student Support Services offers extensive academic support (see Snow College catalog). The Student Success Center on the Richfield campus offers math and English developmental courses, study groups, and study skills information. 

Students should seek help during the first weeks of each semester. Faculty and other sources of help are most effective when accessed early in the semester.

Career Exploration

Many students are unsure of their major or career, but resources are available to help students explore their options.

Students are encouraged to take a careers class (AGBU 1100 – Career Exploration in AgriBusiness; BIOL 1810 – Biological Careers; BIOL 1820 – Medical Careers; or GNST 1500 – Career Decisions); talk to faculty and advisors about career ideas; and take a wide variety of classes. In addition, students can take the Myers-Briggs Personality Type inventory which may help them clarify careers. Students who remain undecided about their careers should take classes which will improve their “skill set” for employment. Recommended courses that strengthen real-world skills include: communication courses, math courses, business courses, writing courses, foreign language courses, and computer courses. By being involved in clubs and committees, students also improve their planning, organizing, leadership, and interpersonal abilities while gaining resume-building activities. 

Transfer Information

Most Snow College students indicate that their long-term goal is to complete a bachelor’s degree and will eventually transfer to a four-year university. The process of transferring can be a confusing one, but the Academic Advisors can help students achieve a smooth transition.

Students who intend to transfer should:

  • Find out which universities have which majors. All colleges do not have all majors
  • Investigate the requirements for admission into both the university and the major. The prerequisites for admission into a major may include: specific courses, field experiences, entrance exams, and grade requirements. Almost all majors expect students to take specific courses in their first two years in order to be ready for transfer. Furthermore, major prerequisites may vary from one university to another for the same major. Advisors can help students make sense of this
  • Become acquainted with Snow faculty. They often have valuable connections at the universities. Remember – students often need letters of recommendation from faculty when they transfer
  • Become familiar with how Snow courses will transfer by contacting advisors, both at Snow and at the university level
  • Check university websites for admission and scholarship deadlines
  • Access the best time to transfer

Careful planning (with the help of an Academic Advisor) can make the difference between a four-year Bachelor’s degree or a six-year degree!

Know the types of courses that are required for a Bachelor’s degree:

(Numbered 1000-2999, usually taken at Snow)
General Education
Major Prerequisites
Minor Prerequisites (if needed)
Recommended Courses

(Numbered 3000-4999, usually taken at a university)
University Requirements/Breadth Requirements
Major Courses
Minor Courses (if needed)
Recommended Courses

REMEMBER: communicate with Advisors 'early and often' at Snow and at the four-year level.

Intent to Transfer Program for New Students

Snow College is currently working on new Intent to Transfer agreements with Southern Utah University (SUU) and Utah State University (USU). These agreements will be designed for new freshmen who have definitive majors and who are planning to transfer to either SUU or USU. The key advantages of the Intent to Transfer is that students who are accepted into these programs receive advising from both Snow College and university advisors (SUU and USU) while still attending Snow College, and they develop educational plans that guarantee efficient transfer.

Students registered for six credits or more have a job seeker account waiting for them at Hit the big “Snow College Handshake Login” button and use your firstname.lastname and campus password to login.

Campus Jobs

Campus job open each year on August 1.  This gives new and returning students an equal opportunity to apply for campus jobs. ALL applications must go through the student’s Badger Handshake job seeker account and require a resume. Some jobs require additional documents such as a cover letter or class schedule which students can add to their Badger Handshake account. 

Campus jobs categories are Federal Work Study and Student Hourly.  All current students taking 6 credits or more may apply for Hourly jobs.  Only students awarded Federal Work Study through their Snow College Financial Aid package may apply for those jobs. 

Campus Job Fairs and Recruiting Events

More than 250 employers visit our campus each year to meet students about their employment openings. We post events in Badger Handshake at Events include practice interview days, employer recruiting tables, summer job fairs, and career fairs.


Internships are an opportunity for students to link theory with practice. They are temporary, on-the-job experiences intended to help students identify how their classroom studies apply to the workplace. Internship are individually arranged by the student in collaboration with a Faculty Mentor from their major or program of student, and the Employer.

Internships provide students an opportunity to explore career options through an engaged setting, apply academic materials and skills to practical work situations, provide valuable professional experience, and develop interpersonal communication skills. Typically, students who participate in an internship secure work more quickly, receive higher starting salary offers after graduation, and are promoted more rapidly than their classmates who do not pursue an internship.

Internship credit is available to students with a 2.0 GPA or higher, and have taken 30 or more credits.  Students may take up to 3 credits per semester, and are limited to 6 credits total credits at Snow College. Internships require Faculty approval to add to your course load.  Internships can be part-time or full-time for a semester or summer/seasonal time period. Interns will work 45 hours for every 1 credit they receive.

Career Center Advisors will get you started on your Internship. Because students must secure their own employer/sponsor within their major or field of study before they seek out approval for the internship, the advisors will be an invaluable resource for referrals, assistance with application materials, and writing their goals and objectives for their Learning Agreement with their faculty mentor and on-site employer.
