BYU is eligible to receive Regents funds for the high school graduating class of 2021. The student must first submit their fall enrollment and/or deferment plans to the Regents’ office. After that, Regents will send the information and funds to BYU to determine individual semester awards to cover tuition and fees after all other state aid is awarded.
BYU provides Regents’ your enrollment, GPA, semester credit completion, admissions deferment, and Supplementary (Gap) Award Eligibility. This verification happens AFTER the Fall and Winter semester add/drop deadlines.
All students must enroll in and complete 12 credit hours during the first semester they receive the Regents’ Scholarship. BYU will communicate directly with the Regents’ Scholarship Office to verify your enrollment.
Students are eligible to receive a one-time payment of $2,000.
Students are eligible for a one-time payment of up to $300, subject to contributions to their my529 account.
Supplemental (Gap) Award
Students who are eligible for the Supplemental Award may use it for up to 4 semesters. Students are required to complete 12 credits each semester and maintain a 3.0 semester GPA.
Students who do not earn a 3.0 semester GPA will be placed on probation for one semester. Students who do not earn a 3.0 semester GPA for a second semester will forfeit the scholarship. Students are still able to receive the Supplemental (Gap) Award while on probation.
The Supplemental Award will expire 5 years from the date of high school graduation, regardless of an approved deferment or leave of absence.
Students need to work with the Regents’ Scholarship Office for Deferments, Enrollment Verification, and Appeals. BYU receives the award information directly from Regents’.
Students are required to successfully complete 12 credit hours each semester starting Fall 2020 and earn at least a 3.3 semester GPA.
Students who do not meet the 3.3 semester GPA requirement may be placed on probationary status. If you earn less than a 3.3 semester GPA for a second semester, students forfeit the scholarship.
