Snow College is the most affordable college in Utah. With tuition averaging at $2,998 for in-state students, it is by far the cheapest choice. However, $2,998 can be a lot, especially for first time students. So, how are people paying for tuition?
Snow College also offers many scholarships to make learning here even more inexpensive. The top academic scholarships are the Presidential, Dean, Achievement, and Honors, based on grade point averages. Each of these residential scholarships significantly lowers tuition costs. Merit based, athletic, and private scholarships allow proficient students to pay for college.
Austin Neumann, a Snow College freshman, stated that he uses a mix of “ the Dean Scholarship and savings” to pay for tuition.
Another way students pay for college is through FAFSA, or Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Those who are eligible for FAFSA include a need for financial aid, be a U.S citizen or eligible noncitizen, and are enrolled in college.
Another Snow College student, Keti Salakielu says he is paying tuition through, “a mix of loans and personal money.” Student loans are another way that many people pay for schooling. These loans are money borrowed from the government or private organizations. The loan must be paid back later along with accrued interest.
While the price of getting a college education may seem daunting, there are many ways to help ease the financial burden. Whether through good grades, athletics, federal aid or out of pocket, Snow College is an affordable choice for most students.
