As a BYU-Idaho student, you will be eligible for financial aid. To apply for federal financial aid, you will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). We encourage you to talk to the Financial Aid office for more detailed information.
Currently, online students are not eligible for institutional scholarships and grants. Students who have previously earned a bachelor's degree are not eligble for federal Pell grants.
Forms of Federal Financial Aid
Federal Pell Grant: Unlike a Federal Student Loan, a Federal Pell Grant does not have to be repaid. Pell Grants are usually awarded only to undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. The amount you can get depends on your financial need, costs to attend school, full/part time status, and how long you plan on attending school. To apply, you’ll need to complete the required documentation available through the Financial Aid Office. In most cases, there is no credit minimum to be eligible for the Federal Pell Grant.
Federal Student Loan: Unline a Federal Pell Grant, a Federal Student Loan does need to be repaid. In order to get Federal Student Loans you need to enroll at least half time, which is six credit hours per semester. Things like amount of other aid you receive and your overall financial need will be taken into consideration when determining how much you qualify for.
