Submitting your FAFSA and any required verification documents by the priority deadlines ensures you will avoid late tuition charges.

Some documents may take time to obtain, so please apply early and plan accordingly.

FAFSA Federal Deadlines

The last date to complete your FAFSA depends on which semester is your final semester of the academic year. Your FAFSA must be submitted and received by BYU-Idaho prior to your last day of attendance for the academic year. It can take 3-5 business days for BYU-Idaho to receive your submitted FAFSA from the Department of Education. Federal financial aid offered on a FAFSA received after your last date of attendance cannot be awarded. For example, if you are a Fall/Winter student for the 2016-2017 academic year, your FAFSA must be received in our office before April 7, 2017. Don’t miss out on your financial aid. Apply early!

Verification Documents Deadline:

Federal policy requires that any required documents be submitted no later than 110 days after your last day of attendance, or September 15, 2017, whichever is earlier. Failure to submit your documents by this deadline will disqualify you from receiving federal financial aid for that academic year and may require repayment of funds already received. Required documents are found on your financial aid student portal. Carefully read all the instructions for your documents, as they cannot be processed unless they are completed correctly. Electronic signatures are not accepted unless prompted and verified as part of the document completion process. 

BYU-Idaho Scholarship Application Deadline:

The 2017-2018 Scholarship Application is open from October 27, 2016 and closes April 15, 2017.
