Students having missed more than one semester of their assigned track at BYU-Idaho for military service must reapply for admission to BYU-Idaho via www.besmart.comOn Part 1: Applicant Information > Identification, the student is asked to indicate if he/she is a veteran of the U.S. armed forces. Please ensure this question is answered appropriately.
  2. If a student is applying for readmission after established deadlines for the requested semester of enrollment have passed, the student should contact BYU-Idaho Admissions at (208) 496-1300 to ask about application deadline flexibility for military veterans and personnel.
