Step 7 - Take a Campus Tour

Prospective Students

There's no better way to feel the 'Spirit of Ricks' than by visiting BYU-Idaho's campus in person. Campus tours are provided Monday through Friday, except on Tuesdays from 2-3 P.M. when we are closed for Devotional. The first campus tour is two hours from 9 A.M. to 11 A.M. The remaining tours are provided on the hour from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. BYU-Idaho's campus tours include a tour hosted by a current BYU-Idaho student and options to visit with admissions representatives, other administrative offices, and academic departments during your visit. We look forward to seeing you at BYU-Idaho! Please request a prospective student campus tour in advance by calling the Admissions Office at 208-496-1300 or email us at
