Welcome to BYU-Idaho's Financial Aid Office. Financial aid encompasses any financial resources from the following four sources:
The Financial Aid Guide (see sub-navigation to the left) will help guide and orient students through completing the financial aid process. Here is an overview of the financial aid process:
Every student is assigned a financial aid advisor according to their last name. A student's financial aid advisor is responsible for awarding financial aid. They are available to answer questions, educate students about financial aid opportunities, and help students through the financial aid process.
Advisors are only available Monday - Friday 8am - 4pm

Financial aid funds are intended to be used for education costs and expenses students incur while completing their education.
*Certain financial aid awards, such as some private scholarships, have requirements limiting their use only for tuition based costs.
The BYU-Idaho Financial Aid Office is tasked with the responsibility for helping students secure financial aid, verify financial aid documents, and releasing funds to the Accounting and Bursars Office. The Accounting and Bursars Office is responsible for all disbursement and charges made to the students' accounts.
