Summer Session at BYU-Idaho is a shortened semester that lasts for seven weeks from late July to September. Attending Summer Session allows students to jump start their BYU-Idaho education, get acclimated to a new city, and be able to graduate faster by taking additional credits in the summer.

New Students

Fall/Winter and Spring/Fall Students: You have the opportunity to come to campus a little bit early, get a jump start on your General classes, and have the opportunity to live in BYU-Idaho approved housing.

Winter/Spring Students: You have the opportunity to get a jump start on your General classes. This could be a great way to earn some credits before starting your mission. You’ll also be able to experience life in Rexburg before coming back to campus in January.

Returning Missionaries: You have the opportunity to catch up on your studies and get established in Rexburg.

Please note that attending Summer Session does not change your track assignment.

Continuing Students

Regardless of your assigned track, you can stay for Summer Session. It gives every student the opportunity to take extra classes while still being able to enjoy their flex semester. Students on the Fall/Winter semester have the opportunity to arrive in Rexburg early and get ahead. Students on the Winter/Spring track have the opportunity to have a more personalized experience, but get to experience the Rexburg life for a few extra weeks. Students on the Spring/Fall track have the opportunity of decreased travel costs by getting to stay in Rexburg between Spring and Fall.
