Registering for Parson Days

Registration for Parson Days will open July 5. Students will receive information via direct mail in April and June about registering for a Parson Days session. You can find your "S Number" on the address label of your Parson Days postcard.

Each Parson Days session is limited to the first 60 students who register for it.

Before you can register for a Parson Days session, you will need to make sure you have completed all items on the Parson Days Checklist. Not completing all items on the checklist will prevent you from registering for a Parson Days session.

ACT and/or COMPASS Test scores must be on file in order to register for a Parson Days session. You will need to take the ACCUPLACER test if you scored less than a 20 on the Math and Reading sections, less than an 18 on the English portion of the ACT or did not take the ACT.

In order to register for Parson Days, you MUST have a Snead State Student Number or "S Number." The "S Number" is a nine-digit number that begins with an S. Your "S Number" is provided to you on your Parson Days postcards that you will receive from Snead State in May.

What can I expect the day of my Parson Days session?

ALL Boaz Parson Days sessions will begin in the Administration Building, located at 220 North Walnut Street in Boaz. Arab Parson Days sessions will be held at the Snead State Arab Instructional Site, located at 261 South Main Street in Arab.

If you are in a transfer major and plan to transfer to a four-year college or university once you complete courses at Snead State, you will need a STARS Guide with you at check-in. A STARS Guide is a transfer template that will provide you the major specific courses that you can take at Snead State that will transfer to your four-year college or university.

A general session will be held in Fielder Auditorium on the Boaz Campus and at the Arab Instructional Site for both students and parents. Following the general session, there will be two sessions, one for students and one for parents. The student session will be hosted by Snead State student leaders. Student leaders will focus on campus life and will be glad to answer any questions you may have about campus activities or what you can expect. Parents will remain for a session that will concentrate on what they will need to know about their student attending Snead State. Representatives from various offices, including Financial Aid, Admissions, Campus Security and more, will be there to provide information as well as answer questions that parents may have. After the parent/student sessions, parents may join their student as they begin the advising and registration process. It is NOT mandatory for parents to attend Parson Days.
