Admission Application Tips
- Freshmen who meet the December 1st priority deadline for the spring/summer/fall application will receive primary consideration in the admission process. See the full list of application deadlines here.
- Please note that while it is anticipated that those who meet the December 1 priority deadline will have the opportunity to live on campus, options are dependent upon what is available on any given room selection date.
- Students who choose to apply for and attend summer term will have priority selection for fall on-campus housing and fall class registration.
- 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 an LDS mission can view full information about deferring here.
- Applicants will need to submit a transcript for any concurrent college credit received.
- Any international 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.
