Qualifications for Applying for Fast Graduation

BYU-Idaho graduates gather in the I-Center for Commencement.
The Fast Grad program offers students the opportunity to graduate faster by attending BYU-Idaho year-round. Students who meet the following criteria are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office to discuss their eligibility for Fast Grad.
A Fast Grad override (permission to attend your off-track semester) is only given for one semester at a time. Students must receive approval for each off-track semester they desire to attend before they can register. Approval for one Fast Grad override does not guarantee approval for additional future overrides.

  • The student must be a full-time BYU-Idaho student admitted to one of the three tracks.
  • The student should have earned at least 50 credits prior to applying for Fast Grad.
  • The student should have attended both of their preceding on-track semesters at BYU-Idaho.
  • The student should have and maintain a minimum 2.8 college GPA.
  • The student must have a current approved Grad Plan on file with the Academic Advising.
