Admission to BYU-Idaho for new freshmen is based 40% on academic factors. These factors include:
Testing Requirements and Academic Minimums
New freshmen and transfer students with less than 24 credits completed by the application deadline must take the ACT or SAT.
Since students often improve after taking the ACT or SAT a second time, we encourage students to test more than once. Mid-junior year of high school is a good time to begin testing. To learn more about the ACT or SAT tests or to sign up, please visit www.act.org or www.sat.org. BYU-Idaho will use the highest score submitted prior to the application deadline.
