Teri Clawson, Assistant Vice President for Enrollment Management said, “We focused our enrollment strategy on retention and technical education this year, and we are pleased to see growth in these areas. Our top priority is student success, and this report suggests that our faculty and staff are indeed meeting students where they are and helping them achieve their personal educational goals.”

In addition to these two areas of growth, the Center for Global Engagement reports an increase of 85 students (41%) this year. A look at all student demographics is available on the college’s institutional research website.

Snow College remains the most affordable college in the state with in-state tuition set at $1,898/semester. Nearly 75% of students receive some sort of financial aid. Student Body President Jackson Rowley said, “This is the best place in the world to get a personalized education and have a life-changing experience at an affordable price.

Class sizes are small, involvement possibilities abound, and professors know us by name.”
