Test fee waivers and reduction programs that BYU-Idaho students are able to participate in:
- Tuition Waivers - Students whose parent(s) are employed at BYU-Idaho or any CES school (BYU, BYU-Hawaii, LDS Business College, etc.) and are eligible for a tuition waiver need to direct all inquiries concerning tuition waivers to the Human Resources Office. The Financial Aid Office does not control nor facilitate this program.

A student must have completed a FAFSA to be considered (certain eligibility requirements are based off of the FAFSA results). Visit the Education Testing Services - GRE Fee Reduction page to read more about the GRE Fee Reduction program eligibility requirements. After submitting the form to the Financial Aid Office, expect the processing of the form to take a minimum of 48 hours (students need to be mindful of deadlines).
