Admission Application Tips

  • Submit the application by the appropriate application deadlines.
  • Students should apply for the semester or term for which they wish to attend. Requests to change beginning semesters may not be accommodated.
  • The admission criteria are the same for all entry dates. One semester or term is not easier to get into over another. 
  • Applicants intending to serve a mission can view full information about deferring here.
  • Applicants will need to submit a transcript for any concurrent college credit received.
  • Students who have completed a bachelor’s degree are not eligible for a second bachelor’s degree from BYU, but are welcome to apply to BYU graduate programs.
  • Transfer applicants with 90 or more graded semester credit hours are unlikely to be admitted.
  • For transfer guides, transfer evaluations, and transfer contact information, please visit Transfer Evaluation.
  • International college or university work must be submitted through IERF or WES. See Evaluating International Work for more information.  BYU will only accept official US-accredited transcripts without an evaluation.
