If you have been admitted to BYU in Provo, you are already eligible to register for BYU Salt Lake Center classes and can add them through MyMAP. If you have not been admitted to BYU in Provo, you will need to have a high school diploma or GED with a 2.0 or higher GPA. A Clearance to Register form and an Ecclesiastical Endorsement will need to be completed before you can register for classes. To start the clearance process please follow the steps outlined on the BYU Salt Lake Center Students page.
Yes, if your student grants you Guest Access*. However, students are strongly encouraged to complete their own information if possible. Class registration is a part of a student’s academic record for which he or she is responsible. Any misinformation put on a student’s record by someone other than the student becomes the student’s responsibility. For information on federal academic privacy laws, please visit the Records Privacy (FERPA) information website at BYU.
*Guest Access to a BYU account may be granted by the student to individuals of their choice. Guest Access allows those individuals to act on the student’s behalf.
It might be because you haven’t completed a Clearance to Register form for the semester or term for which you are trying to register. A Clearance to Register form must be completed each semester or term that a non-matriculated student wants to attend classes at the BYU Salt Lake Center. Ecclesiastical Endorsements only need to be submitted once a year.
Registration clearance will begin two weeks before the registration start date for the applicable semester or term. It will take a minimum of three days for clearance to be granted once this period starts. When you have been cleared to register, you will be notified through YMessage.
It is probably because your Clearance to Register form hasn’t been approved. If you have waited the appropriate amount of time for the approval process, there are two other problems that could be holding it up. First, your Ecclesiastical Endorsement may not be valid and/or second, you have not updated your personal information. Once you have obtained a valid endorsement and have updated your personal information, the approval process can move forward. For any other concerns, contact Student Services at 801-933-9400.
Because non-matriculated BYU Salt Lake Center students are considered non-degree-seeking students, they do not qualify for federal financial aid. Federal financial aid, as well as most scholarships, require a student to be in a degree-seeking program to receive aid. BYU Salt Lake Center does offer some need-based financial assistance to non-matriculated students.

No, students not admitted to BYU in Provo and who take classes at the BYU Salt Lake Center are considered non-degree-seeking students.

In other words, credit earned at the BYU Salt Lake Center may transfer to other universities. For credit transfer policies, please contact the university you plan to attend.
It depends. Each college or university decides which classes and credits they will accept from other institutions. You will need to contact your chosen institution to see which BYU classes and credits are accepted and how they will transfer.
