An advisor can help you know what courses to take, how to setup your schedule, declare or pick a major, and ensure that you are meeting all university requirements.
Qualify for Aid
Degree-seeking students who are citizens of the United States may be eligible for U.S. federal student aid. Only courses directly related to a student's declared program/major will be eligible for federal financial aid.
Apply for Graduation
- Students can fill out the BYU-Idaho graduation application up to one semester in advance of their actual graduation. Students indicate on the application if they plan to attend commencement and convocation on the BYU-Idaho campus.
- Students may walk at graduation either one semester before or one semester after they graduate, if needed.
- Students will not be given their diplomas until final grades have been posted. The diploma will arrive in the mail three to six weeks after the semester is officially over.
When a student is not able to register for a course they need, typically a course authorization is needed. A student must meet the prerequisites for a course before they can qualify for a course authorization. If you would like to know if you qualify for a course authorization, please submit the course authorization form .
Course substitutions are when students use another course from a different institution to count for a BYU-Idaho course. Advising is not the decision maker in this process, but you can fill out the course substitution form to see if your course qualifies to replace a BYU-Idaho course. The individual academic departments will decided if a course is equivalent or not.
