Snead State Community College

The Parson Pledge is a tuition discount for the spring 2021 semester. For every spring 2021 class you register and pay for, we’ll waive the tuition on each additional class for up to nine hours.

Fees and exclusions may apply. This is competitive and students must complete the application for consideration.


  • You must be a dual enrollment/ accelerated high school student, first-time-freshmen, transfer student, returning student or current Snead State degree/certificate seeking students. Transient students are not eligible for this discount.
  • Students who already have an institutional scholarship or other third-party billing for the Spring 2021 semester (i.e. WIOA, TRA, VA, dual enrollment workforce grant, etc.) are not eligible for this discount. Being a Pell grant recipient does not exclude anyone from this discount.
  • You must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident.
  • You must have a 2020-2021 FAFSA on file with Snead State. High school students are exempt from this.
