Getting Your Scholarship Money

Read these tips to understand how to get your scholarship money on your student account by the appropriate deadlines.

Getting your money from scholarships depends on the type of scholarship you received.

Types of Scholarships

BYU Scholarships: will automatically be applied to your student account to pay for tuition as long as you meet all eligibility requirements.

Off-Campus Scholarships: will be applied to your account soon after we receive a check from your scholarship donor, and as long as you meet all eligibility requirements (off-campus scholarship eligibility requirements are different from BYU scholarship eligibility requirements). It typically takes 3-4 weeks for off-campus scholarships to be applied to your account.

Department Scholarships: contact the college department directly for information regarding that scholarship.

Excess Money from Scholarships

Excess money from scholarships (if any) will be refunded beginning on the 3rd day of classes (4th day of classes during spring term). We recommend setting up direct deposit for faster delivery.

Applying for Scholarships

The deadline to apply for scholarships for the next academic year is February 1st.
