Waiting for a Decision

  • When admitted, read acceptance letter and follow all directions

Apply for BYU-Idaho Grants (Scholarships)

Track Questionnaire         

  • The track questionnaire is not a request form but gives admitted students the opportunity to make us aware of any circumstances that might influence when you attend
  • In the admittance letter is a link to the track questionnaire. Complete track questionnaire
  • The track questionnaire will auto-submit after 10 days

Watch email for track assignment

  • When you receive your track assignment, read it and follow directions
  • Step #1 in the track assignment email tells you how to accept your offer to attend BYUI

New Student Checklist

  • In your track assignment, there is a link to a New Student Checklist. This will walk you through all of the next steps, including housing, registration, insurance, etc. 

Missionary Deferments

  • Once students have been admitted, have accepted their offer to attend BYU-Idaho, and have received a mission call, they are able to defer for the duration of their mission. This means that BYU-Idaho will maintain a student’s enrollment and BYU-Idaho Grants (scholarships) until they return. To do this go to http://www.byui.edu/admissions/deferments
