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