All materials must be received or reported by the appropriate application deadline. If you would like to make any changes to your application after submission you will be required to withdraw your application and then resubmit. This will update the application submission timestamp. Failure to report a complete and accurate academic history, may result in your acceptance being revoked, loss of credit, or dismissal from the institution.
High School Transcripts
*If you or your high school opted for pass/fail grades for the semester(s) or term(s) impacted by COVID-19, this will not have a negative impact on your admission application to BYU.
If you are applying with less than 24 university/college GPA credit hours and/or just graduated from high school, you will be required to report your graded, US-accredited high school work, that's been completed from 9th through 12th grade.
You will need access to your high school transcript when self-reporting in the application and will enter your courses and grades, according to the grading scale on your high school transcript. Grades should be reported exactly as they appear on your high school transcript. Transcripts that do not match the self-reported grades may result in your offer of admission being revoked.
You only need to supply an official transcript if you are admitted. This can be done in one of the following ways:
- Electronically through Parchment Exchange, National Transcript Center, or National Student Clearinghouse
- Mailed by the high school
- Mailed or hand-delivered by the student
If you are admitted, you will not be able to register for classes until your official transcript has been received and verified. This process can take about a week.
Below are some of our most asked questions regarding High School Transcripts. If your question is not answered below, please contact us and we would be happy to help!
Toggle ItemDoes BYU use a weighted or unweighted GPA?
BYU uses a standardized grading system to ensure consistent evaluation of all transcripts. Due to variations in grading scales and calculations, we use only an unweighted GPA. Report grades as they appear on your transcript but know that the BYU GPA calculation may not match exactly.
Toggle ItemShould I report my Senior year (12th grade) grades?
Senior year grades should be reported if you have received a final grade for the class, or in other words, if the grade is showing on your official transcript. If you are currently taking classes, you should report those as “in-progress” on the application.
Toggle ItemI am in an accredited homeschool program. Will I report this work in my application?
Toggle ItemI have completed Non-US-accredited work. Will I report that in the application?
No. Non-US-accredited work, including traditional homeschool or non-US-accredited international work, should not be reported in the Transcript section of the application. You will fill out the "yes/no" questions only.
Toggle ItemI have completed international secondary education work. Will I report that in the application?
