HOW TO ENROLL

BYU Salt Lake Center Students

Students who have not been admitted to BYU must:

  • Have a high school diploma or GED
  • Have a 2.0 or higher GPA for all completed coursework

Students who meet the requirements above must follow these steps:

1. Complete the Ecclesiastical Endorsement form
  • Schedule a meeting with their ecclesiastical leader(s). If this is the first time the student has filled out the endorsement form, both the bishop and stake president must complete it.
2. Complete the Clearance to Register form
  • This form must be completed each semester or term in which the student wants to take classes at the BYU Salt Lake Center.
3. Register for classes using MyMap
  • Students may register for classes as soon as (1) their Clearance to Register form has been approved, (2) their Ecclesiastical Endorsement is valid, and (3) registration for the semester or term is open. After students are approved, they will be contacted via YMessage.
  • Please see the Registration Cart instructions to learn how you can start choosing classes before your priority registration date. 
  • For other questions about registration, please visit BYU Enrollment Services.
4. Pay tuition and fees
  • Tuition and class fees are due seven calendar days before the start of each semester or term. If tuition and class fees are not paid by that date, a hold will be placed on the student’s registration until they are paid. If tuition is not paid by the add/drop deadline, all classes will be dropped. For specific tuition amounts and deadlines, please refer to the tuition fees and deadlines posted by Financial Services.
  • A fee for the BYU Student Health Plan will be charged to every student registered for 9 or more credit hours and must be paid or a waiver requested in My Financial Center. A hold will be placed on the student’s account until the fee is paid or the waiver is granted. Health insurance is required for all students registered for 9 or more credit hours.

MISSIONARY DEFERMENT

AUDITING

Auditing a class means registering for a class for which you will not receive credit or a grade. The class will not show up on your transcript after the end of the semester or term.

Students may audit a class if their total credit hours do not exceed 18 per semester or 9 per term. For additional information, including costs, please visit BYU Enrollment Services.

GUEST ACCESS and RECORDS PRIVACY (FERPA)

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a 1974 federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. It outlines the rights of students who attend a postsecondary school like Brigham Young University. This includes the right to inspect and review education records, to seek to have records amended, and to have some control over the disclosure of information from the records. Because of federal privacy laws, the BYU Salt Lake Center cannot give student information to a third party unless the student has authorized that person through Guest Access.

To grant Guest Access, visit the BYU Enrollment Services webpage.

For more information about FERPA, please see BYU’s Records Privacy (FERPA) website.

HEALTH INSURANCE

Students who are enrolled in 9 or more credit hours at BYU or the BYU Salt Lake Center are required to have health insurance year-round, including any spring or summer term when they do not attend classes and during other short-term breaks from classes.

All students with 9 or more credits are automatically enrolled in the BYU Student Health Plan. Students who are already covered by a different health insurance plan will need to go to My Financial Center to waive the BYU Student Health plan.

Students who want to waive the BYU Student Health Plan must do so every fall semester before the add/drop deadline.

For additional information, see the Student Health Plan Requirements and the Health Plan FAQ.

To contact the Student Health Center, call 801-422-2771.

Financial Assistance for Non-Matriculated Students

Students are responsible to cover their tuition and other related expenses.

BYU Salt Lake Center non-matriculated students DO NOT qualify for Federal financial aid (federal student loans and Pell Grants applied for through FAFSA) because they are not in a degree-seeking program that would qualify them for FAFSA.

The BYU Salt Lake Center does offer limited financial assistance based on need. To apply for assistance, students must fill out a FlexGE @BYU scholarship application.

BYU also offers matriculated and non-matriculated students the option of a short-term loan. The BYU short-term loan is designed to help students pay tuition by the final deadline if financial aid or other payment arrangements have not been finalized.

Tuition is due seven calendar days before the start of each semester or term. If tuition is not paid by that date, a hold will be placed on the student’s registration until it is paid. If tuition is not paid by the add/drop deadline, all classes will be dropped. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for semester and term start dates.
