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 questions, 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.

Job Postings

We post more than 7,000 jobs and paid internships each month on Badger Handshake. These include full-time career positions, part-time local off-campus jobs, paid internships, AND Snow College campus jobs. 

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 jobs 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. Internships 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 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 help get students started on an 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 goals and objectives for their Learning Agreement which is shared and signed by their faculty mentor and on-site employer.
