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.
Please note that attending Summer Session does not change your track assignment.
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 and 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.
Cost for Summer Session
Financial aid may be available to eligible students for Summer Session, but could have an impact on the aid you receive for your on-track semesters. Please contact the Financial Aid office to determine your aid for your upcoming school year, including Summer Session.
