Parson Days

Parson Days is the new student orientation at Snead State Community College. During Parson Days, students receive valuable information about advising, class registration and campus engagement. Students are able to map their course to graduation. After closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation, we have made a decision to host this year's Parson Days completely online. Starting July 8, you'll be able to visit to see your step-by-step Parson Days guide. By the time you're finished, you'll be able to register for the fall semester beginning July 15. We're also going to host some live Q&A sessions for students and parents to ask any questions they may have.
