Transfer & Transient Students

If you have attended a college other than Snead State after high school or GED graduation, but you now wish to enroll at Snead State, you are considered a Transfer student.

If you are a student enrolled in good standing at another college and wish to take classes at Snead with the intention of transferring those credits to your current college, you are considered a Transient student.

Both Transfer and Transient students should follow these steps to apply:

1. Submit Online Application

Complete and submit the Online Application for Admission.

2. Complete Residency Form

Print and sign the Signature/Residency Form.  This form may be delivered, mailed, or faxed to the Office of Admissions (256-593-7180).

Mailing Address: P.O. Box 734, Boaz, AL 35957
Boaz Campus: 220 North Walnut Street, Boaz, AL 35957
Our Admissions Office is located in the Technology Center.

3. Provide Proof of ID

According to Alabama Board of Education Policy 801.01, all students must provide an unexpired government issued photo ID for admission to Alabama community colleges. You can present this ID in person, or send a legible copy via email.

Examples of acceptable government issued photo IDs include:

  • An unexpired state-issued driver’s license
  • An unexpired state-issued identification card
  • An unexpired U.S. passport
  • An unexpired U.S. permanent resident card
  • An unexpired military ID card

4. Take the Accuplacer Assessment

The Accuplacer Assessment is a mandatory placement program in math, English, and reading. 

It is offered in the Academic Success Center on the Boaz campus Monday through Thursday from 8 AM until 12 PM by appointment only.  (Students wishing to take it at the Arab Instructional Site should call 256-840-4116.)

Note: Due to safety concerns regarding COVID-19, Accuplacer testing is available only by appointment or through an online proctoring company called Examity. Students who walk in to the testing center will not be able to take the Accuplacer test without first making an appointment.

Students interested in taking the Accuplacer through Examity must have a computer that meets Examity/Accuplacer requirements for software, audio, and video. There is also a $25 fee for the online proctoring service.

Students making an appointment to come to the testing center must bring a photo ID and adhere to the College’s COVID-19 procedures, such as wearing a mandatory mask, completing a signed waiver, responding to mandatory questions and submitting to a temperature check.

Official documentation of ACT/SAT scores (20 or higher in Math and Reading and 18 in English) or successful completion of previous college level courses may exempt a student from taking the Accuplacer.

5. Provide Official Transcripts or Transient Letter

All Transfer applicants must submit to the Office of Admissions at Snead State official transcripts from all previous colleges attended, as well as an official transcript documenting high school/GED graduation. 

It is the student’s responsibility to request that these transcripts be sent to Snead State.  For convenience, you can download the Transcript Request Form. Please note that some colleges charge a processing fee for transcripts.

Students who have achieved a minimum of a Baccalaureate degree are only required to submit a transcript from the granting institution for admission to the college. However, you may need to submit other transcripts for evaluation of transfer credit.

All Transient applicants must submit a transient letter from his/her home college listing all courses that he/she is eligible to take at Snead State Community College.
