Federal Aid is money granted by the government to enrolled students who are in need of financial assistance. There are two different types of federal aid, Pell Grants and Federal Student Loans. Both types are defined below.

Filling Out the FAFSA

The FAFSA is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. The FAFSA determines your eligibility for federal aid, which includes Pell Grants and Federal Student Loans.


Pell Grants

Federal Pell Grant funds are awarded to degree-seeking students based on financial need. Need is determined by the information you provide on your FAFSA.

Pell Grants


A loan is money you may borrow to help pay for college that must be repaid. You can apply for loans through the FAFSA.

Student Loans

The 2017-2018 BYU-Idaho Scholarship Application (Summer 2017, Fall 2017, Winter 2018, Spring 2018) is open until April 15, 2017.

BYUI Scholarships

To be eligible for scholarships through BYU-Idaho, you must fill out the BYU-Idaho Scholarship Application. There is no automatic consideration for scholarships; all university scholarships (with the exception of Talent and Leadership Scholarships) require the completion of this application. The BYU-Idaho Scholarship Application is available starting in October each year and closing in April.

BYUI Scholarships are awarded for one academic year and require an enrollment of 14 credits. Awards will be made based on the semesters indicated on the application. The maximum amount a student can receive each semester in university scholarships is full LDS tuition.

Your application information along with your GPA, major, credits earned, etc. will be compared to the criteria of all available scholarships offered through the scholarship application. Your award could possibly include an Academic Scholarship, a General BYU-Idaho Scholarship, or both. You will be notified if you receive any awards through your BYU-Idaho email account.

In order to keep your scholarship(s), you must be enrolled in at least 14 credits on the last day to drop classes without receiving a W grade. This date, which usually falls around the third week of each semester, is referred to as the Financial Aid Determination Date (FADD). It is your responsibility to be aware of the FADD each semester, as well as the 14 credit requirement.

Prorating Scholarships

If you have been awarded a BYU-Idaho Scholarship, and you are in your last semester before graduating with your Bachelor's Degree, your scholarship can be prorated if you're taking less than 14 credits. Simply email the financial aid office ( and let us know how many credits you will be enrolled in during your final semester. To get an idea of the prorated amount of your scholarship, please see the table below.
