It's important for Early College Online students to put themselves on the waitlist for their desired courses and then check their email inboxes DAILY. This is how the academic affairs and registration offices will know what courses are in high demand and then work toward increasing capacity and/or creating additional course sections.
Snow College offers some fully CBE courses. However, most are full-semester online courses with due dates and limited submission options. Competency-Based Courses can be identified by the section #’s N50 or N51. They should also have CBE listed at the end of the section title (i.e. ENGL 2010,N50 – Intermediate Research Writing – CBE.)

Students can track their progress toward a degree by utilizing DegreeWorks. Students can also contact an academic advisor for information regarding courses and degree requirements. Students who submit their graduation application by the following deadlines should receive a pre-audit of their academic progress which will identify what courses may still be needed.

A student may attend Snow College prior to high school graduation if he or she:

  1. Is at least a junior or senior in high school, with some rare exceptions for sophomores.
  2. Has a GPA or ACT score which predicts success, generally considered to be a 3.0 GPA or 22 composite ACT score. (A sophomore must have a 3.5 GPA or higher.)
  3. Submits an Early Admission Informed Consent Agreement.
  4. Meets approved course prerequisites that apply to both regular college students and concurrent enrollment students, e.g., Math (ACT and/or math placement score).

Charges won’t show up on student accounts until a few weeks before the semester begins. When you receive an invoice for your courses, pay it. Courses will be dropped if we do not receive payment by the due date. If your district has agreed to pay the invoice, please work with them to get the invoice paid. Tuition is due by the 5th day of the semester and can be paid online through the student’s BadgerWeb account or by calling the Cashier’s Office at 435.283.7296.

Concurrent enrollment is designed as dual enrollment - meeting High School requirements and earning college credit. Courses taken through the Early College access Online program may or may not also meet high school requirements. It’s the responsibility of the student to work with their high school to determine if the credit can be accepted by them.

As concurrent enrollment programs are subsidized by the State, only students that attend a public Utah high school are eligible for traditional concurrent enrollment programs at $5 per credit. Additionally, due to state of Utah requirements Snow College is only able to offer a limited number of concurrent enrollment courses and only to public high schools within our six-county service area which includes: Juab, Millard, Piute, Sanpete, Sevier and Wayne counties.

Yes. Although some summer courses began on May 10th, there are still several course options that don’t begin until May 31st. Students can register now for those courses.

Admitted students should follow the instructions at this link in order to access their email.

It’s important to note that all communication between Snow College and students should be through the email account. If students can’t access this account or don’t check it regularly, important and timely information could be missed – including WAITLIST notifications.

Early College does not qualify for financial aid.
Students will not have multiple attempts at assessments in most courses; however, we have multiple supports in place that are shown to be more effective for student success.
  1. Students will have access to 24/7 in all subjects.
  2. Students will have access to an academic coach/mentor.
  3. Students will be taught and assessed (graded) by the professor. They will also be able to reach out to the professor for support.
