Breaking Down the Three Track System 


BYU-Idaho operates year-round with three distinct 14-week semesters: Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each student is admitted to a track consisting of two semesters: Fall/Winter, Winter/Spring, or Spring/Fall. The two semesters of the students’ track are when they will enroll in classes. The semester that is not on their track is considered a Flex Semester where students have many options. A list of these options is in the dropdown menu below. A student's track remains with them for the duration of their time at BYU Idaho.


Students may be assigned to any of the three tracks. Some students will be assigned to begin in the second semester of a track (example: assigned Spring/Fall track starting in the Fall). Others may be admitted to start in a semester other than the first available semester indicated (example: available Fall, assigned Winter/Spring track starting in the Winter).
