Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Welcome to Brigham Young University-Idaho. My wife, Sue, and I
love this school and the wonderful young people who come here. As
you begin your studies, let me share with you two points of counsel
regarding your time at BYU-Idaho.
First, take advantage of opportunities to develop as a disciple of Jesus
Christ. You can enhance your discipleship by obeying the Honor
Code, attending weekly devotionals, and being active in your campus
ward. These experiences will enrich your life, provide you with
valuable knowledge, and prepare you to serve, love, and lift others.
Second, become immersed in learning. You will soon become familiar
with the BYU-Idaho Learning Model. It emphasizes individual
preparation, collaborative and reflective learning opportunities, and
reliance on the guidance of the Holy Ghost by both instructors and
learners. As you engage in active teaching and experiential learning,
you will become further prepared to be a capable leader in your
family, the Church, the workplace, and the community where you
live.
I invite you to embrace all that BYU-Idaho has to offer. You will be
rewarded now and far into the future. May the Lord bless you with
happiness and success in your endeavors.
Again, welcome to campus.
Warm regards,
Kim B. Clark
President, Brigham Young University-Idaho

Nondiscrimination/Academic Freedom
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Statement of Nondiscrimination
BYU-Idaho considers non-discrimination to be fundamental to its mission, goals, and objectives. BYU-Idaho recognizes that its’ future success is,
in part, dependent upon its ability to successfully accommodate the increasingly diverse nature of the student body and employees, which diversity is promoted by the worldwide growth of its sponsoring Church. The University is committed not to unlawfully discriminate in the administration of its’ educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, employment and other school-administered programs on
the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, sex, veteran status, genetic information, or disability for all individuals who meet university
and department academic requirements and agree to abide by the university’s standards of conduct and behavior. The university does exercise
the “religious” exemption in admissions as granted in Title IX of the Education Amendments, 20 U.S.C. 1681 (a)(3) and in hiring employees as
granted in 41 CFR 60-1.5(a)(5).
Any person who believes he or she has encountered discrimination should contact the following:
Students: .................................................................................................. Dean of Students Office, located in 290 Kimball, or call 496-9200
Faculty:................................................................................................................. Academic Office, located in 210 Kimball, or call 496-1135
Staff:........................................................................................................ Human Resources Office, located in 226 Kimball, or call 496-1700
Academic Freedom
Brigham Young University—Idaho (BYU-Idaho) is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. BYU-Idaho invites faculty and
students to pursue secular knowledge in a climate of religious belief. This model consciously embraces all truth, regardless of its source.
Individual freedom lies at the core of both religious and academic life and is based not only on a belief in the value of free inquiry, but also on the
gospel principle that humans are moral agents. Individuals should seek knowledge in the sacred as well as in the secular, by the heart and spirit as
well as by the mind, and through continuing revelation as well as in the written word of God.
The faculty and students are entrusted with individual academic freedom and are encouraged to pursue truth according to the theories,
methodologies, and practices that characterize scholarship in the various disciplines. This trust encompasses the freedom to explore a variety of
ideas.
The Board of Trustees and the academic leadership of BYU-Idaho expect faculty members to protect the fundamental interests and the doctrines
of the Church, the individual faith of Church members, and the mission of the University at all times. Faculty members are free to discuss and
analyze Church doctrine and policy. However, faculty members should not engage in expression privately or in public that knowingly contradicts
or opposes Church doctrine and policy. Faculty members should not deliberately attack or deride the Church, the University, their leaders, or the
principles of the Honor Code.

Mission Statement
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Mission Statement
Brigham Young University–Idaho is
affiliated with The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Its mission is to:
1. Build testimonies of the restored
gospel of Jesus Christ and encourage living its principles.
2. Provide a quality education for
students of diverse interests and
abilities.
3. Prepare students for lifelong
learning, for employment, and for
their roles as citizens and parents.
4. Maintain a wholesome academic,
cultural, social and spiritual
environment.

Lifelong Learning
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
LIFELONG LEARNING
Foundations offers a focused and complete approach to learning
Brigham Young University-Idaho prepares students for lifelong
learning, for employment, and for their roles as citizens and parents.
Innovative educational concepts help prepare graduates to contribute
significantly to the Church, the community, and the workplace.
BYU-Idaho is home to the Foundations program. This unique approach to general education courses is aimed at raising the quality of
every student’s experience at BYU-Idaho.
In the previous general education program, students had a longer
and more diverse list of classes to choose from, creating a significantly
different experience for each student. Foundations has purposefully
limited the number of class options, ensuring that all students will
have similar experiences and receive a more focused educational
experience.
At BYU-Idaho:
•
A year-round track system allows more students to attend.
•
Internships enhance marketability.
•
The Student Activities Program provides students with
opportunities to lead and serve.
•
The Learning Model fosters faith-building learning.
•
The Foundations Program offers a focused and complete
approach to learning.
•
Students are trained to be leaders.
•
Students develop a life of honor.
•
The “Spirit of Ricks” is preserved and enhanced.
Students are trained to be leaders
While most universities are research-focused and faculty-centered,
BYU-Idaho is teaching-focused and student-centered. Through
hands-on student employment and leadership opportunities, thousands of students every year are given practical opportunities to build
skills that will help them become disciples of Christ and leaders in the
workforce.
A year-round track system allows more students to attend
President Kim B. Clark said, “We engage our students in active leadership with meaningful responsibility across the university. They are
required to lead, direct, and move things forward in managing many
of our programs and activities.”
BYU-Idaho operates on an expanded year-round basis to allow more
students the opportunity to attend. This creative academic calendar
revolves around a three-track system: Spring/Fall, Fall/Winter, and
Winter/Spring. Qualified students are admitted to one of the three
tracks and they stay on the same track through graduation. Yearround options are available as students enter their upper coursework.
Students develop a life of honor
The heart of BYU-Idaho is Personal Honor. This means all students live by the BYU-Idaho Code of Honor, dress and grooming
standards, and specific housing guidelines. Obedience and faith are
the core of Personal Honor as each student strives to raise his or her
personal bar of righteousness.
Internships enhance marketability
BYU-Idaho is one of the largest intern-producing universities in the
nation. An academic internship is a cooperative program between the
student, the university, and approved experience providers (employers). Internships enable students to obtain practical and valuable
work experience, to apply skills and knowledge learned in school,
and to gain exposure to various job opportunities. In most cases,
an internship is a required element for both associate and bachelor
degree-seeking students.
BYU-Idaho holds a weekly devotional and students attend weekly
worship services and other church activities—all bringing students
together to be taught by the Spirit. Through unity, sacrifice, and love,
students become better leaders in their homes, in the Church, and in
the world around them.
The Student Activities Program allows students to lead and serve
The “Spirit of Ricks” is preserved and enhanced
BYU-Idaho Student Activities Program meets the needs and interests
of a broad and diverse student body. An array of year-round activities
is offered in the areas of Outdoor, Social, Service, Talent, Fitness,
and Sports. Each area is structured to give students numerous
opportunities for active involvement at various levels of interest
and commitment. Our innovative programs help students develop
character and enhance leadership skills. Within Activities, students are
participants not just spectators.
While looking to the future, we work to preserve and enhance the
“Spirit of Ricks.” Simply stated, this entails upholding a tradition of
service, hard work, friendliness, and compassion—the same convention that bonded the students, faculty, and administration for more
than 100 years as Ricks College.
President Kim B. Clark said, “Our mission, our very purpose, is to
educate, develop, and prepare disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This purpose is deeply rooted in this university. The Lord watches
over this university in a very powerful way. Our purpose is to help
[students] become His true followers, His true disciples, a light to
the world.”
The Learning Model fosters faith-building learning
At BYU-Idaho, everyone is a learner and a teacher. Designed to
deepen the learning experience of students, the Learning Model
helps create a greater responsibility for students to learn and teach
one another. It is an inspired learning process and builds on the
understanding that all learners and teachers are at different levels
in their individual progress. It encourages learners and teachers to
prepare, teach one another, and then ponder and prove.
For more information, contact BYU-Idaho at (208) 496-1411, or
visit www.byui.edu.
The Learning Model teaches learners and teachers to 1) exercise
faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as a principle of action and power; 2)
understand that true teaching is done by and with the Holy Ghost;
3) lay hold upon the word of God—as found in the holy scriptures
and in the words of the prophets—in all disciplines; 4) act for themselves and accept responsibility for learning and teaching; and 5) love,
serve, and teach one another.

Graduation
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
ATTENDANCE AT COMMENCEMENT
In addition to specific degree requirements, students must also meet
the graduation requirements listed below:
• Grade Point Average: To graduate, a student must have a
minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
• Graduation Catalog: A student is responsible for the
Foundations and Major requirements listed in any one BYU–
Idaho Catalog (chosen by the student) from the year of first
enrollment to the year of graduation, provided the BYU–Idaho
Catalog chosen is not more than seven years old. However,
students are subject to all other policies, requirements, and
procedures as outlined in the University catalog for the current
academic year.
• Resident Credit: To graduate with a bachelor’s degree a student
must complete a minimum of 30 credit hours of BYU–Idaho
credit. To graduate with an associate degree a student must
complete a minimum of 24 credit hours of BYU–Idaho credit.
• On-Campus Credit: To graduate with any degree, a student
must earn a minimum of 15 credits on campus (not online) at
BYU–Idaho or successfully complete one of the options within
BYU–Idaho’s Pathway Program (Academic Start or Accelerated
Start). Students who transfer 15 or more credits earned on
campus at another CES school (BYU, BYU–Hawaii, or LDSBC)
will be considered as having met this graduation requirement.
• Upper Division Credit: To graduate with a bachelor’s degree,
a student must complete a minimum of 15 hours of BYU–Idaho
upper-division credit (300 or 400-level courses). Associate
degrees do not require a minimum number of upper-division
credits.
• Minor: At least 6 credits must be taken in residence.
• Concentration: At least 6 credits must be upper-division credit
(300 or 400-level courses).
• Cluster: At least 1 course per cluster must be taken in residence.
• Academic Standing: Students who are academically suspended or
academically dismissed may not graduate from BYU–Idaho
• Good Honor Code Standing: Students must be in Good Honor
Code Standing in order to graduate from BYU–Idaho. Former
students wishing to graduate from BYU–Idaho, but whose
ecclesiastical endorsement has expired, will need to submit a
current endorsement before their application for graduation will
be processed.
Commencement and Convocation exercises are held in April, July,
and December. Students who do not attend Convocation must claim
a diploma cover from the Student Records and Registration Office
before leaving campus. Diplomas will be mailed to graduates only
after all requirements have been completed and verified, usually 6-8
weeks after final grades are posted.
Graduation exercises at BYU-Idaho differ than most others in that
we invite the ministry of the Spirit by our conduct and proceedings.
To assist in this process and to show respect for everyone present,
graduates are asked to adhere to BYU-Idaho’s Dress and Grooming
Standard of Sunday dress.
Additionally, so as not to draw attention to any one individual;
flowers, leis, honor cords and other embellishments that might be
considered academic regalia should not be attached to or worn
with the cap and gown during the convocation or commencement
ceremonies. However, outside of these ceremonies, the wearing of
honor cords and other regalia are permitted for society and other
graduation pictures.
GRADUATION HONORS
•
•
•
Cum Laude: Students ranked in the top 10% of their graduating
class.
Magna Cum Laude: Students ranked in the top 5% of their
graduating class.
Summa Cum Laude: Students ranked in the top 1% of their
graduating class.
All honors are based on the cumulative GPA completed at the end
of the semester prior to the graduation ceremony. No adjustments
will be made for grades posted or changed following the graduation
ceremony. To be eligible, the application must be submitted before
the application deadline.
FINANCIAL HOLDS
Candidates with outstanding debts to any department or office will
not receive diplomas or official transcripts until all amounts are paid.
EXIT SURVEY
APPLICATION FOR GRADUATION
In the interest of documenting post-graduation rates of employment
for accreditation purposes, all students must complete a brief exit
survey, available online, approximately one month before their
anticipated graduation.
Current students apply for graduation online via my.byui.edu.
Former students may request assistance in applying for graduation at
graduation@byui.edu.
For specific deadlines, refer to the Academic Deadline Calendar
found in this catalog. Students who apply after the Graduation
Application deadline will not be included in the Commencement
Program and will not be considered for academic honors. Graduates’
names will be included in the program for the Commencement for
which they apply to graduate, not the Commencement in which they
march, if different.
Various means will be used to remind students of this graduation
requirement, including emails sent to the student’s BYU–Idaho email
account with a link to the survey, a notation on the student’s Grad
Report, and notification through the respective college Career and
Academic Advising offices.
Completion of the exit survey is a graduation requirement, and
candidates for graduation who do not complete the survey will not
receive their diploma until they have done so.
Official graduation is subject to a degree audit following the last
semester of enrollment. The Student Records and Registration office
will notify students of any graduation deficiencies. The Graduation
Application of those who do not complete the requirements will
be reevaluated at the end of the next semester. However, students
who do not complete graduation requirements within one year after
application must reapply for graduation.

Accreditation / Majors
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Accreditation
Brigham Young University - Idaho is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
Accreditation of an institution of higher education by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities indicates that it meets or exceeds
criteria for the assessment of institutional quality evaluated through a peer review process. An accredited college or university is one which has
available the necessary resources to achieve its stated purposes through appropriate educational programs, is substantially doing so, and gives
reasonable evidence that it will continue to do so in the foreseeable future. Institutional integrity is also addressed through accreditation.
Accreditation by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities is not partial but applies to the institution as a whole. As such, it is not
a guarantee of every course or program offered, or the competence of individual graduates. Rather, it provides reasonable assurance about the
quality of opportunities available to students who attend the institution.
Inquiries regarding an institution’s accredited status by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities should be directed to the administrative staff of the institution. Individuals may also contact:

Foundations
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
This is an exciting time to be associated with Brigham Young
University-Idaho as it continues on a steady, upward course of
academic innovation. Dedicated administrators and faculty members
are continually working to prepare students to be well-educated
academically as well as spiritually.
One of the university’s academic developments is our general
education program called Foundations. Just as the name suggests,
Foundations is designed to provide a strong base for the rest of your
university experience and throughout your life.
Foundations presents a focused approach to general education,
allowing students to explore specific aspects of diverse subjects,
delving deep into each topic. The courses are interdisciplinary and
have been created through countless hours of faculty collaboration to
provide you with the most effective learning outcomes.
Foundations courses are divided into five groups: Eternal Truths,
Academic Fundamentals, Science, Cultural Awareness, and
Connections. While some courses are required, others are left to
personal preference. You will be blessed as you enter these inspired
classes with an open mind and willing heart.
I invite you to carefully review the Foundations courses available and
determine which classes will benefit you most. I wish you success in
this and every other endeavor here at BYU-Idaho.
Best regards,
Kim B. Clark
President, Brigham Young University-Idaho

Foundations
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Overview of Foundations
Connections: All students take the 2-credit Foundations Capstone
course.
• FDCNC 350, Foundations Capstone: Analytical Thinking and
Moral Judgment (2 credits)
A BYU-Idaho education includes both the acquisition of marketable
skills and a broad general education. BYU-Idaho graduates should
not only be employable, but also literate, well rounded, cultured, and
informed. They should be good thinkers and good communicators.
They should be good citizens with strong testimonies. And they
should graduate with the passion and skills to make them lifelong
learners.
Foundations Requirements: Associate’s Degree (A.A. or A.S.)
For students pursuing an associate’s degree, a total of 32 credits of
Foundations courses are required. The requirements are the same as
those for a bachelor’s degree, with two exceptions. Students pursuing
an associate’s degree only complete 8 credits in the Eternal Truths
area: FDREL 121, FDREL 122, FDREL 200, plus two additional
FDREL credits of their choice. Also, for an associate’s degree, students do not take the Foundations Capstone course, FDCNC 350
in the Connections area. The course requirements for the Academic
Fundamentals, Science, and Cultural Awareness areas are the same as
those for a bachelor’s degree.
In BYU-Idaho’s Foundations program, students acquire lifechanging skills and knowledge. Courses are both broad and deep.
Students develop the ability to think critically, to read and write, to
reason quantitatively and scientifically, and to collaborate. They also
encounter big and meaty questions about today’s world, and make
connections between the course material and other aspects of their
lives.
In their Foundations courses, students can find not just a job, but a
vocation—a purpose and vision of how they can bring about a better
world and the skills to help them do it. Foundations is an oasis of
learning in a busy and distracted world. We invite students to pause
and drink deeply from its waters.
Foundations Requirements: Applied Associate’s Degree (A.A.S.)
An applied associate’s degree does not transfer to other institutions.
It is intended to be a terminal degree, leading to a profession. For
an applied associate’s degree, students complete a total of 17 credits
in Foundations. Students take 8 credits in the Eternal Truths area:
FDREL 121, FDREL 122, FDREL 200, plus two additional FDREL
credits of their choice. Additionally, students take the FDENG 101,
FDENG 201, and FDMAT 108 courses in the Academic Fundamentals area.
Foundations Requirements: Bachelor’s Degree
As part of a bachelor’s degree, students will complete 14 credits
in Eternal Truths, 9 credits in Academic Fundamentals, 7 credits
in Science, 8 credits in Cultural Awareness, and 2 credits in
Connections.
Eternal Truths: Students complete 14 credit hours of Religion at
BYU–Idaho.
• FDREL 121 and FDREL 122, Book of Mormon (2 credits each)
• FDREL 200, Family Foundations (2 credits)
• 4 scripture-based credits (2-credit options include FDREL 211
or FDREL 212, New Testament; FDREL 301 or FDREL 302,
Old Testament; FDREL 324 or FDREL 325, Doctrine and
Covenants; FDREL 327, Pearl of Great Price; and FDREL 404,
Writings of Isaiah)
• 4 additional FDREL credits of your choice
Academic Fundamentals: All students take the following courses,
for a total of 9 credits.
• FDENG 101, Writing and Reasoning Foundations (3 credits)
• FDENG 201, Advanced Writing and Critical Thinking (3 credits)
• FDMAT 108, Mathematical Tools for the Real World (3 credits)
Science: Students take 7 credits of Science as part of their Foundations experience.
• FDSCI 101, Science Foundations (2 credits)
• Students complete 5 credits of the Issues in the Sciences courses
(numbered FDSCI 200 or higher)
Cultural Awareness: Students complete 8 credits in the Cultural
Awareness area: 3 credits of American Foundations and 5 credits of
Cultural Awareness or World Foundations.
• FDAMF 101, American Foundations (3 credits)
• FDCA 101, Foundations of Humanities (3 credits)
• Students complete 2 credits of the 200-level Cultural Awareness
courses (numbered FDCA 200 or higher)
Instead of taking FDCA 101 and a 200-level Cultural Awareness
course, students can take the following two courses:
• FDWLD 101 and FDWLD 201, World Foundations

Transfer of Credit from other Universities and Institutes of Religion: Religion credit earned at Church Education System Institutes of Religion or other LDS Church schools will transfer to BYU-Idaho as an equivalent religion course or elective credit so long as the course is taken for
credit and such credit is noted on an official transcript. While these religion credits from other LDS Church schools or Institutes of Religion may
transfer to fulfill required religion content, they do not satisfy the BYU-Idaho resident religion requirement (religion courses taken from BYUIdaho). Coursework in religious studies from any place other than an LDS Church school or Institute of Religion will not be accepted toward
filling the BYU-Idaho religion requirements.
Religion courses taken at the BYU Jerusalem Center (during a student’s BYU–Idaho experience) will transfer to fulfill both religion course content and the resident religion requirement. However, such credit does not apply to the completion of the overall BYU-Idaho residency requirement. BYU Jerusalem Center credits earned prior to a student’s enrollment at BYU-Idaho can be used to fulfill religion course content only, but
may not be applied to any BYU-Idaho residency requirement.

Foundations Substitution Modules
Recommended Sequence for Foundations Courses
Some courses at BYU-Idaho have been approved as substitutions for
Foundations courses. Students will typically opt to take the substitution courses if they are required as part of their major.
Students are encouraged to take one religion class each semester,
until they have completed the required number of FDREL classes.
After that, students are invited to enroll in an Institute of Religion
class each semester. Most FDREL courses do not have prerequisites,
so they can be taken in any order. For example, a student may take
FDREL 122 before taking FDREL 121.
Eternal Truths: There are no substitution modules for Religion
courses.
It is recommended that full-time students enroll in two or possibly
three Foundations courses their first semester. These courses might
include FDENG 101, FDAMF 101, FDSCI 101, FDCA 101, or
FDMAT 108. The remainder of the schedule is used to explore a
field of study.
Academic Fundamentals: Substitutions can be made for FDENG
201 and FDMAT 108.
FDENG 201 (3 credits)
Take B 220
FDMAT 108 (3 credits)
Take one of the following: FDMAT 110, FDMAT 112, MATH
109, MATH 113, MATH 215, or ECON 215; and
Take FDMAT 108T
FDMAT 108 (3 credits)
Take one course: ECON 215 or any FDMAT or MATH course
numbered 112 or higher; and
Take one course: MATH 221A, MATH 221B, MATH 221C,
MATH 325, MATH 330, ECON 278, AGBUS 430, or B 212;
and
Take one course: B 301, B 433, HS 345, ME 380, CE 470,
ECON 453, ECON 455, or AGBUS 440
Foundations enriches the educational experience at BYU-Idaho. Students should spread out their Foundations courses, rather than trying
to get through them in a few semesters.
Science: Two possible substitutions exist for the 200-level FDSCI
Issues in the Sciences courses.
200-level FDSCI courses (5 credits total)
Take 4 credits: CHEM 101, CHEM 101L, or CHEM 105; and
Take 4 credits: ME 201, PH 105, PH 121, PH 123, PH 127,
PH 150, PH 220, PH 223, or PH 250
200-level FDSCI courses (5 credits total)
Take 8 credits: AS 215, AS 355, AS 495, BIO 180, BIO 181,
BIO 204, BIO 208, BIO 221, BIO 222, BIO 225, BIO 264,
BIO 265, BIO 302, BIO 352, or BIO 386; and
Take 4 credits: CHEM 101, CHEM 101L, CHEM 105,
CHEM 106, CHILD 210, ESS 375, HRHP 359, HS 320,
PSYCH 111, PSYCH 201, PSYCH 342, PH 101, PH 105, RM

-Brigham Young

Academic Policies
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
ACADEMIC POLICIES
GPA Requirements for Extracurricular Activities
Student Records and Registration Office
Students must be making satisfactory academic progress (2.0 GPA) to
represent the school in extracurricular activities.
The Student Records and Registration Office processes all student records after the Admissions Office has admitted the student. Registration, graduation, transcript requests, and the processing of all forms
that affect student academic records are handled by the Student
Records and Registration Office.
Electronic Devices in the Classroom
The BYU-Idaho Learning Model envisions students who have come
to class prepared to share ideas-rather than merely receive them.
Learning occurs through discussion in which each student listens
carefully to the comments of others and seeks the opportunity to add,
as inspired, to what is being said. Participating in such a discussion
requires careful attention–as though one were with a friend, one-onone.
Email as an Official Method of Communication
Official university messages to all employees and students may be sent
through BYU-Idaho email. Employees and students are expected
to regularly check their email accounts for official information. This
policy is to ensure that important BYU-Idaho communication is received in a timely and consistent manner. All students and employees
are responsible to check their BYU-Idaho email accounts frequently.
In order to promote such a learning environment, the University
requires, as general policy, that electronic devices be turned off
during class time. These devices include laptop computers, cell
phones and all other electronic devices.
Full-Time Student Status
Students must be registered for 12 credit hours per semester to be
eligible for certain full-time status benefits. However, some benefits
may require more than 12 credits. The full-time equivalency for
Block registration is 6 credit hours.
Instructors may, for the sake of achieving special learning objectives
or to meet individual student needs, authorize the use of specific
electronic devices in their classrooms. However, it is recommended
that the use of laptops for note-taking not be allowed except
for occasional lectures. In the Learning Model environment,
thinking about what is being said in the classroom and seeking the
opportunity to add a comment is more important than transcribing
the discussion. Impressions that come in class can be noted by hand.
When class is over, students will find that their handwritten notes,
along with ideas brought to remembrance by the Spirit, will allow
them to write detailed reflections. Those reflections will be richer
because of the student’s active participation in the class discussion.
Credit Requirements for Benefits
To be eligible for various benefits, students must be enrolled in the
hours indicated.
•
14 semester credits (and a 3.7 GPA): BYU-Idaho scholarships
•
12 semester credits: full Veterans’ benefits, full Pell Grants, selected loans and grants, campus employment, athletic competition, Social Security benefits, running for student government
offices or fulfilling major appointive offices in student government, health insurance coverage, international students, Stafford
Student Loans, and PLUS loans
Username and Password Protection
Students and employees should never share their BYU-Idaho username and password with any other person or business. Providing this
information to others could potentially compromise the university’s
systems as well as student and employee personal information (e.g.
social security number, finances, grades). Because providing this
information to other people or businesses puts BYU-Idaho at risk,
individuals who do so could face dismissal from the university.
GPA Requirements for Extracurricular Activities
Students must be making satisfactory acedemic progress (2.0 GPA)
to represent the school in extracurricular activities.
Attendance and Absence from Class
Sexual Harassment
Students are responsible for class attendance. No absences, whether
approved by the University for participation in University-sponsored
activities or necessitated by sickness or other personal emergencies,
are “excused” in the sense that the student is relieved from class work
assigned during the absence. To ensure continuity, students must
make up missed work. In most cases, repeated absences will result in
a lower grade or failure.
Sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome conduct of a sexual
nature. Sexual harassment may include unwelcome sexual advances,
requests for sexual favors and other verbal, non-verbal, or physical
conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment of a student may deny
or limit, on the basis of gender, the student’s ability to participate in
or receive benefits, services, or opportunities in University programs.
BYU-Idaho’s policy against sexual harassment extends not only to
employees of the University but to students as well. If sexual harassment or gender-based discrimination is encountered, or if assistance
or information related to allegations of sexual harassment is needed,
contact the Student Honor Office, Kimball 270, or call (208) 4969300.
Exceptions to University Academic Policy
Students wishing to appeal any BYU-Idaho academic policy must
submit a petition to the Academic Exceptions Committee through
the Student Records and Registration Office. These situations may
include dropping classes or withdrawing from school after published
deadlines. Petitions must be submitted within one year of the
semester for which the student is requesting exception to academic
policy. The petition process is meant to accommodate students
with extenuating circumstances or emergencies beyond their control
that may impact their academic records. Only BYU-Idaho academic
policies can be appealed; federal guidelines and/or requirements
cannot be appealed through this committee. A student can initiate a
petition by contacting the Student Records and Registration Office.

CONFIDENTIALITY OF STUDENT RECORDS
• Major field of study
• Degrees and awards received
• Participation in officially recognized activities and
sports, including height and weight
• Previous educational institutions attended
• Religious affiliation to local church or congregation
• Current class schedule
• Photograph
• Number of months/semesters enrolled

half time)
• Anticipated future enrollments
• Course registrations prior to the beginning of a
semester/term
• Expected date of graduation
• Deferred registration eligibility
Notification of Rights under FERPA
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords
students certain rights with respect to their education records. These
rights include:
1. The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days after the University receives a request
for access. Students should submit to the registrar, dean,
head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the record(s) they wish
to inspect. The University official will make arrangements
for access and notify the student of the time and place
where the records may be inspected. If the records are not
maintained by the University official to whom the request
was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the
correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
2. The right to request amending those education records
that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the University to amend a record that they
believe is inaccurate or misleading. (This does not apply to
grade changes.) They should write the University official
responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the
record they want changed, and specify why it is inaccurate
or misleading. If the University decides not to amend the
record as requested by the student, the University will
notify the student of the decision and advise the student
of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for
amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing
procedures will be provided to the student when notified
of the right to a hearing.
Additionally, under an agreement with The Church of Jesus
Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Church), BYU-Idaho releases the names and birthdates of students to the Church
for the purpose of moving the students’ church membership records to the wards in which they will reside during
a given term. This data is provided to the Church in a
secure, electronic format. Students can block the release
of this information by submitting a completed “Request
to Withhold Directory Information” form to the Student
Records and Registration Office.
6. Students have the right to block the release of their public
directory information by completing a “Request to Withhold Directory Information” form at the Student Records
and Registration Office. For complete confidentiality, this
form must be completed within the first ten days of each
semester or term. Students may also modify the display of
the public directory information.
3. The right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education
records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes
disclosure without consent. One exception that permits
disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials
with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a
person employed by the University in an administrative,
supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position
(including law enforcement unit personnel and health
staff); a person or company with whom the University
has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection
agent); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary
or grievance committee, or assisting another school official
in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an
education record in order to fulfill his or her professional
responsibility.
7. Parents or guardians of students claimed as dependents
on the most recently submitted Federal Income Tax form
may have grade reports forwarded to them pursuant to
the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.
Parents of dependent children under the above-described
definition must submit a Certificate of Dependence Form
in order to receive grade reports. No grade report will
be sent to a parent or guardian without proper submission of this form. The Student Records and Registration
Office will record Certificate of Dependence forms and
send grade reports as requested. Parents of students who
have declared themselves as independent are not eligible to
receive grade reports.
4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department
of Education concerning alleged failures by the University to comply with the requirements of FERPA. To file a
complaint, write to: Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S.
Department of Education, 600 Independence Avenue, SW,
Washington, D.C. 20202-4605
Students may waive their independent status by completing the
Waiver of Independence Form. Completion of this form authorizes
parental access to student grades regardless of the dependency status
of a student.
5. The following information is considered directory information and may be made public:
• Student name
• Home and local address
• Telephone numbers
• E-mail addresses
• Dates of attendance (current and past)
Forms are available at the Student Records and Registration Office or
online at www.byui.edu/srr/forms.

Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
ACADEMIC STANDARDS
If students are receiving University or federal financial aid, they
should contact the Student Financial Aid Office to verify their eligibility while on Academic Probation.
Academic Standing
Students’ academic standing at BYU-Idaho is determined at the end
of each term by three measures of their work:
• 1.0 or higher semester GPA
• 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA
• 75% semester Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
Academic Suspension
Academic Suspension is the suspension of a student’s opportunity
to enroll in any academic course at BYU-Idaho for two consecutive
semesters, including those offered through Continuing Education,
Online Learning and the Internship Office. Academic Suspension is
a result of performing below the established BYU-Idaho academic
standards after being placed on Academic Probation.
Students are classified in one of the following academic standing
categories: Good, Warning, Probation, Suspension, or Dismissal.
Students on Academic Suspension will be withdrawn from courses
and issued a tuition refund if they have pre-registered and/or paid
any tuition for a subsequent term. Additionally, students on Academic Suspension are (1) ineligible to live in BYU-Idaho approved
student housing and must contact the Housing and Student Living
Office; and (2) are ineligible for student employment and must contact their campus employer.
Good Academic Standing
Students are making satisfactory progress when their cumulative
GPA is 2.0 or above, each semester GPA is 1.0 or above, and they
earn progress grades for 75 percent of their credits in each semester
of enrollment. Please note, however, that too many semester GPAs
below a 2.0 will result in a student not meeting the 2.0 cumulative
GPA standard.
Students on Academic Suspension are expected to return to the
University after sitting out the two consecutive semesters immediately
following the semester they were suspended. Students who do not
enroll in their next on-track semester following their Academic Suspension will be withdrawn from the University and will be required
to apply for re-admission. Students choosing to serve an LDS mission
immediately following their Academic Suspension will not need to
reapply to the University if they have deferred their enrollment in the
Admissions Office using the LDS Missionary Admission Deferment
Application.
Progress and Non-Progress Grades
Grades are considered to be either “progress” or “non-progress.”
“Progress” grades range from A to D- and P. “Non-progress” grades
are F, W, UW and may include NR, T and I. Some progress grades
do not meet graduation requirements.
Academic Warning
Academic Warning is an official notice to students that they are
performing below the established BYU-Idaho academic standards.
Students on Academic Warning are permitted to continue their
enrollment at BYU-Idaho. However, they will need to participate in
the Achieving Academic Success Workshop (AASW). (See Academic
Standing Chart.)
Students who have their Academic Suspension lifted will be placed
on Academic Probation until they meet the conditions for Good
Academic Standing.
Academic Dismissal
Students will remain on Academic Warning if they earn a semester
GPA of 2.0 or higher but fail to raise their cumulative GPA to 2.0 if
they earn less than six credits in their next semester of enrollment,
or if they do not complete AASW Also, students who are lifted from
Academic Warning but subsequently fail to meet established academic
standards in any future semester will be placed on Academic Probation.
Academic Dismissal permanently restricts a student’s opportunity to
attend BYU-Idaho. Academic Dismissal is a result of performing below the established BYU-Idaho academic standards after being placed
on Academic Suspension. Students who wish to continue a formal
education will need to seek opportunities elsewhere.
Petitioning Academic Standing
If students are receiving University or federal financial aid, they
should contact the Student Financial Aid Office to verify their eligibility while on Academic Warning.
Students may not petition Academic Warning or Academic Probation
(including the 12-credit enrollment limit) because these standings
do not prevent their ability to enroll in courses or access University
resources.
Academic Probation
Academic Probation is an official notice to students that they have
performed below the established BYU-Idaho academic standards for
a second time (after having been on Academic Warning). Students
on Academic Probation are permitted to continue their enrollment at
BYU-Idaho. However, they will need to participate in the AASW and
will be restricted to 12 credits while on Academic Probation. (See
Academic Standing Chart.)
Students who feel they have extenuating circumstances that justify an
exception to the Academic Standards Policy may petition their Academic Suspension or Academic Dismissal to the Academic Standards
Committee. The Academic Standards Committee may choose to
allow an exception, stipulating certain requirements the student must
meet, after which the student may be considered for re-enrollment to
BYU-Idaho. For example, the student may be required to earn credits
at another university to demonstrate academic ability. Exceptions are
entirely at the discretion of the Academic Standards Committee.
Students will remain on Academica Probation if they earn a semester
GPA of 2.0 or higher but fail to raise their cumulative GPA to 2.0, if
they earn less than six credits in their next semester of enrollment, or
if they do not complete AASW. Students who returen to Good Academic Standing but subsequently fail to meet established academic
standards in any future semester will be placed on Academic Suspension while on Academic Probation.
Calculating GPA and SAP
GPA: quality points divided by quality credits
SAP: semester earned credits divided by semester attempted credits
NOTE: Student financial aid eligibility may be determined by a
different SAP percentage

ACADEMIC RECORDS
• Resident:Credit awarded for a BYU-Idaho course and recorded
on the official academic transcript as BYUI-Idaho credit, including online and distance courses.
• Points: The total number of grade points earned in a term or on a
cumulative basis.
Grading System
Grades are determined by each instructor based upon an evaluation
of all assigned and completed coursework. Classroom/laboratory
participation, mastery of subject matter, and promise of continuing
success in sequential courses in related fields are all criteria used to
evaluate progress.
The following table indicates each grade variant at BYU-Idaho with
its equivalent grade points:
• “A” represents outstanding understanding, application, and
integration of subject material and extensive evidence of original
thinking, skillful use of concepts, and ability to analyze and
solve complex problems. Demonstrates diligent application of
Learning Model principles, including initiative in serving other
students.
• “B” represents considerable/significant understanding, application, and incorporation of the material that would prepare a
student to be successful in next level courses, graduate school, or
employment. The student participates in the Learning Model as
applied in the course.
• “C” represents sufficient understanding of subject matter. The
student demonstrates minimal initiative to be prepared for class.
Sequenced courses could be attempted, but mastering new
materials might prove challenging. The student participates only
marginally in the Learning Model.
• “D” represents poor performance and initiative to learn, understand, and apply course materials. Retaking a course or remediation may be necessary to prepare for additional instruction in this
subject matter.
• “F” represents failure in the course.
• “P” represents passing the course and is not calculated into the
GPA.
• “W” represents withdrawal from the class and is not calculated
into the GPA. However, if the class is dropped during the first
22 calendar days of a semester, or the first 15 calendar days of a
block, no annotation will be made on the permanent academic
record.
• “UW” represents an unofficial withdrawal which is given to a student who meets the following criteria: Did not complete proper
withdrawal procedures; has record of non-attendance that began
before the last date to withdraw from individual courses without
grade earned; and did not complete any work, tests, or class-related assignments after attendance ceased. The “UW” is calculated
into the GPA as a failing grade value. (0.0)
• “I” is a conditional grade. (See “Incomplete Grades.”)
• “NR” represents the grade was not reported by the instructor. A
student receiving a “NR” grade should contact the instructor to
request that a valid grade be submitted to the Student Records
and Registration Office.
• “T” represents a temporary grade that is assigned for courses that
do not fall within normal academic deadlines of any given semester. (e.g., internships)
• “IP” indicates that the course is in progress.
• “AU” indicates a course taken for audit.

Incomplete Grades
An incomplete grade (“I”) is a conditional grade only granted under
the following circumstances:
1. Extenuating circumstances (serious illness, personal injury,
death in immediate family, etc.) that hindered class work,
and occurred after the tenth week of a semester or the
fourth week of a block.
2. The student must have a passing grade at the time of
petitioning for the incomplete grade. It is not a substitute
for a failing grade. Therefore, an incomplete grade cannot
be granted if a student is failing a class and wants additional
time to submit make-up work in order to improve a grade.
3. The student must be able to complete the remaining work
on an individual basis with the instructor. Re-enrollment or
attendance in all or part of the same course during a subsequent semester cannot be required as part of the contract.
The general length of time to fulfill the requirements of an
incomplete contract is one additional semester.
4. Instructor approval is mandatory. Incomplete contracts are
granted at the instructor’s discretion.
Credit Definitions
• Attempted: The total number of credits in which a student has
registered in a term or on a cumulative basis.
• Earned: The total number of credits completed with a progress
grade in a term or on a cumulative basis.
• Passed: The total number of credits earned that do not factor into
a term or cumulative GPA.
• Quality: The total number of credits earned that factor into a
term or cumulative GPA.

Academic Policies
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Repeatable Courses
Academic Renewal
Repeatable courses allow a class to be taken two or more times for
additional credit. Most classes at BYU-Idaho are not repeatable for
credit. Repeatable courses are generally designated with an “R” at
the end of the course code (ex: BIO 398R). Departments establish
the maximum number of credits or times a course can be repeated.
A repeated course does not replace the former grade or credit of
a previously completed course. Approval to enroll in a repeatable
course for the purpose of replacing a previous credit and grade must
be obtained from the Academic Exceptions Committee prior to
registering for the course.
Under certain circumstances, BYU-Idaho allows students to petition
for Academic Renewal. If approved, this eliminates previous poor
academic work either at BYU-Idaho or elsewhere, from the student’s
academic record. Before petitioning for Academic Renewal, the following conditions must be met:
1. A minimum of four years must have elapsed since the most
recent coursework to be disregarded was completed.
2. The student must have completed at least one semester at
BYU-Idaho as a full-time student (12 credits or more) with
a grade point average of at least 2.5.
3. The semester(s) to be considered for Academic Renewal
must have a GPA below 2.0.
Retake Courses
Retake courses replace the credit and grade of a previously completed
equivalent course even if the previous grade was higher. The most
recently completed course is calculated into the GPA, earned credits,
and degree requirements. Previous courses remain on the transcript
and are designated as retake courses and will not fulfill degree requirements.
If Academic Renewal is approved, the permanent academic record
is annotated to indicate that no work taken during the disregarded
semester(s), even if satisfactory, shall be applied toward graduation
requirements or GPA calculation. However, all work remains on the
record to ensure a true and accurate academic history. Academic
Renewal may impact a student’s retaken courses.
Students are allowed a maximum of four retakes during their BYUIdaho experience. Retakes occur when retaking BYU-Idaho courses
previously completed at this University. When a University course
is discontinued the opportunity to retake that course is no longer
available. Information regarding discontinued courses and their
replacement courses, where applicable, is available in the respective
academic department sections of the University catalog. Students may
contact the Student Records and Registration Office for clarification
on discontinued courses before attempting a retake.
This policy may not be used for individual courses. Students should
also be aware that this is a BYU-Idaho policy and other institutions
are not obligated to honor it. Academic Renewal may be applied
only once during an academic career at BYU-Idaho. Once approved,
Academic Renewal may not be reversed.
Verifications
A verification is proof of enrollment. It shows the student’s personal
information with name and current dates of attendance. It is used
for insurance purposes, loan deferments, scholarships, employers,
government and legal offices, etc. Free electronic verifications of
enrollment can be obtained by students at any time through the National Student Clearinghouse (www.byui.edu/verification). Parents
and interested third parties can obtain electronic verifications for a
nominal fee at www.studentclearinghouse.org.
Exeeding the maximum number of retakes does not prevent students
from registering for course they have previously completed. Retakes
impact the term and cumulative calculations on the transcript but do
not affect a student’s ability to enroll in a course.
BYU-Idaho courses cannot be replaced by equivalent courses from
other institutions. Exceptions must be approved by the Academic
Exceptions Committee. Students who transfer must recognize
that a transfer institution may not accept the retake course per this
definition.
GPA verification requests must be submitted in writing with the
student’s signature due to FERPA privacy laws. Such requests can be
submitted to the Student Records and Registration Office by letter,
e-mail, fax, and in person. The student’s name, ID number, and an
address, email, or fax number where the verification is to be sent
are required. Presentation of student identification at the Student
Records and Registration Office is required. Social Security numbers
are not listed unless requested by the student.
Pass/Fail Courses
BYU-Idaho offers a limited number of pass/fail courses. Students
in these classes receive no letter grade; instead, they either pass or
fail depending on whether or not they have met the course criteria.
All pass credits are earned but are not included in GPA calculations.
Courses designated as letter grade cannot be changed to pass/fail,
and courses designated as pass/fail cannot be changed to letter grade.
Verification of a student’s directory information, such as dates of
attendance or degrees earned, can be verbally obtained by contacting
the Student Records and Registration Office.
Special Examinations
Transcript Requests
Permission to earn credit by special examination must be obtained
from the applicable Department. Special exams may require a fee.
Official academic transcript requests are made online at my.byui.
edu. Transcripts may not be ordered by phone, e-mail, paper or fax.
Transcripts can be requested by both current and former BYU-Idaho
students by logging into their current or former student account.
When requesting a transcript, students and former students may
choose a certified electronic PDF transcript delivered within minutes
of placing an order. Official electronic PDF transcripts will be
provided at no cost. Students and former students may also choose
a paper copy to be sent by US Postal mail or overnight delivery for
a fee. Transcripts may be sent immediately, at a later date, or after
grades are posted at the end of each term. Official transcripts will
not be released until all BYU-Idaho debts have been paid in full. For
more information, visit www.byui.edu/transcripts.
Vertical Credit
Subject to Department Chair approval, students who have earned a
grade of “C” or better in a class taken at BYU-Idaho for which there
are prerequisite course(s) they have not taken, may be given credit
and a “pass” grade for the prerequisite course(s). The Vertical Credit
will be applied to the same semester in which the qualifications were
met. To apply, students must consult the appropriate Department
Chair. If approved, an application may be picked up at the Student
Records and Registration Office where a credit fee will be assessed.
The fee is $15 for 0.5 to 3.0 credits, with an additional $5 per credit
thereafter. Although vertical credit counts toward total credit requirements for graduation, no grade is given toward GPA computation.

Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
REGISTRATION
If a student does not add the course by the 24-hour registration
deadline, the student will be dropped from the waitlist, and the seat
will be made available to the next student on the waitlist. Students
who do not register for a waitlisted section by the registration deadline or who accidentally drop themselves from a waitlisted section
will need to re-add themselves to the bottom of the waitlist. Student
Records and Registration cannot re-add students to their original
waitlist position.
Class Registration
Student registration for classes is by priority according to credit level.
Credits earned plus currently enrolled BYU-Idaho credits are calculated into the priority registration credit count. If one misses their
designated registration time, they may still register for classes, but
risk less availability of class selection. Students register for all classes
offered during the semester regardless of the starting date of the class
(e.g., second block classes). Students starting on the second block of
a semester register at the same time as all other students.
Students may waitlist multiple sections of the same course. However,
if a student waitlists a section and then registers for a different section
of the same course, the student will be systematically dropped from
all other waitlisted sections of that course.
Students will be notified of adjustments to the registration schedule
and processes through official BYU-Idaho communications methods.
Amount of Credits per Term
Students should be aware of classes with special requirements such as
proper major selection, credit limit, and prerequisite course completion. Tuition is not refunded if a student drops below a full-time
credit load, unless the student completely withdraws from all classes
by the established deadline.
Sixteen credit hours per semester are recommended for full-time
students. Twenty-one credit hours is the recommended maximum.
Students must obtain permission from the Student Records and
Registration Office to take more than 21 credits per semester or 10
credits per block. Students must demonstrate a successful academic
history to qualify.
All individuals participating in BYU-Idaho classes need to be properly
admitted and enrolled to do so. No individual should be allowed to
sit-in on a few classes or for an entire semester without first registering for the course—whether for credit or audit. Compliance with
this process is necessary to ensure each student’s academic experience
is accurately recorded and to ensure that only properly admitted and
eligible students are participating in University courses and utilizing
University resources. All properly registered students, for credit or
for audit, will appear on the course’s class roll.
Class Periods
Regular semester class periods last 60 or 90 minutes. Regular semester lab periods run either two or three hours. For every semester
credit hour, two hours of preparation outside of class are required per
class hour per week. For classes with labs, two or three hours of lab
work per week are also required.
Wait Listing
Registration and Payment Deadlines
During course registration, if a section of a desired course has filled,
students can add themselves—in order— to an electronic list. A
waitlist allows the first student on the list to have priority registration
into the course if a seat becomes available. Waitlisting is offered as
a convenience to students during the registration process. Adding
oneself to a waitlist does not guarantee a seat in the course.
The following deadlines are important for students to keep in mind.
Refer to the University Catalog and Class Schedule for specific dates
for each semester. Remember that payments must be made to the
Cashier’s Office by the deadline date:
1. Final Payment deadline late charge is 5% of unpaid and
related charges.
2. Insurance Payment Deadline.
3. Campus Housing payments. (Refer to housing contract.)
4. Classes dropped after this day will appear on the transcript
with a “W” grade.
5. Last day to drop full semester classes.
6. Last day to withdraw from school without receiving grades
earned.
The availability of a waitlist is at the discretion of the instructor, who
may choose not to offer a waitlist. Students are limited in the number of credits they may waitlist each term based on their student type:
Student Type (Subprogram)
Waitlist Credit Limit
• DAY (on-track or off-track)
12 credits
• Online (ONLN)
12 credits
• Continuing Education (CTED)
12 credits
• Non-matriculating (NONM)
9 credits
• Part-time (PART)
9 credits
• High School Concurrent Enrollment
6 credits
Adding and Dropping Sections
Changes in registration can be made using the BYU-Idaho online
registration system. If a student wishes to add a class that is full, he
or she may contact the course instructor, and the instructor may, at
the instructor’s discretion, authorize the student to add. Students are
responsible for adding and dropping courses and maintaining their
own class schedules. See Academic Calendar for specific registration
and academic deadlines.
Students must meet the same conditions to waitlist a course that they
would have to meet to register for the course. Students who have
not met the course prerequisites, requirements, or other conditions,
or who have holds on their account, will not be allowed to waitlist.
The waitlist process will not automatically add students directly into
a waitlisted section. Students are responsible to add themselves
to waitlisted sections if a seat becomes available. Students will be
notified via their BYU-Idaho email account that they have 24 hours
to add themselves to the waitlisted section. These notifications may
be sent any time, day or night, including weekends and holidays.
Students are responsible to closely monitor any waitlisted section to
prevent missing their opportunity to add a waitlisted course.

Academic Policies
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Audit Classes
Degree Progress
Departments have the right to refuse to allow students to audit
individual courses. The Department Chair must report all courses
that students may not audit to the Student Records and Registration
Office. Audit restrictions will remain in effect until they are removed
by the Department Chair.
Degree Progress is meant to encourage all degree-seeking students
to make reasonable progress in planning for and completing an
undergraduate degree at BYU-Idaho. New freshmen and transfer
students are encouraged to develop a Graduation Plan with the
Academic Discovery Center or assigned Academic Discovery Satellite
Center upon admission to BYU-Idaho. This plan will serve as a tool
in completing degree requirements and working towards graduation.
Students must first register for the class for credit and then contact
the Student Records and Registration Office to change the course
to audit. Generally, students may not audit a Foundations or online
section.
Students who fail to maintain satisfactory Degree Progress may be
restricted from registration and be required to meet with their satellite advising center. Students who consistently do not make satisfactory Degree Progress may forfeit their opportunity to continue their
academic career at BYU-Idaho.
Tuition for audit classes is assessed on the same basis as for credit
classes. Students may not change from credit to audit after the
deadline to drop a course without earning a “W.” Students wishing
to change from audit to credit after the deadline to drop a course
without earning a “W” must receive instructor approval.
Change of Major
Students are encouraged to select a major early in their academic
program to effectively plan towards graduation. Students change
majors by going to the Academic Discovery Center or through
the assigned Academic Discovery Satellite Center. Students should
carefully assess the impact of the major change by utilizing the
Degree Audit report and conferring with their faculty mentor.
Previously approved waivers and substitutions may possibly not
transfer to a newly selected major because of the individuality of the
major requirements.
Students who audit a class are not responsible for attendance, daily
preparations or examinations, and no grade is reported or recorded
on the permanent record. An “I” grade may not be made up by
repeating the class as an audit.
Registered students who drop all credit section(s) and only have audit
section(s) remaining are considered withdrawn from the University
effective the last drop date of the non-audit section(s). Students
will need to re-apply through the Admissions Office for the next
semester. Compliance with deadlines is required, unless a deferment
is obtained.
Students with 60 or more earned credits will not be allowed to
change a major without submitting a petition to the Academic
Standards Committee. The petition must illustrate the ability to
efficiently complete the newly selected major. An attached graduation
plan indicating the remaining courses and planned schedule is
required. To petition a change of major with over 60 credits earned,
students should contact the Academic Discovery Satellite Center.
Instructor-Initiated Drops
For students in courses requiring an audition, the instructor will initiate a drop for those students not selected. These administrative drops
will be processed without penalty and must be filed by the instructor
with the Student Records and Registration Office no later than the
last day to add or drop classes. (See Academic Deadlines.)
Earning Muliple Majors
BYU-Idaho does not allow students to declare or earn multiple majors, even if all coursework is complete.
Students who do not attend the first two classes (or first evening
class) or who do not participate in an online course before the end
of lesson one may be dropped from the course and replaced with
another student. Requests for drops should be submitted no later
than the deadline to drop without receiving a W. In some instances,
such action may jeopardize financial aid or health insurance eligibility.
In such cases, BYU-Idaho assumes no responsibility. Students who
have attended at least one class period are not subject to this policy.
Students who have registered but have no intention of successfully
completing a course should officially drop the course rather than risk
receiving an “F” or “UW” by assuming the instructor will process an
administrative drop.
Earning an Additional Minor
Requests to declare or earn minors that are not required by a bachelor degree program are typically considered only if the minor can be
completed withing the 120 credit limit.
Withdrawal from School and Deferments
Beginning the first day of classes, any student who drops all classes to
a zero credit level will be considered withdrawn from the University.
Dropping all classes with only audit classes remaining will also be
considered withdrawn.
Students who drop all classes via the online registration system are
warned of the withdrawal status implications and informed of their
responsibilities. Students may contact the Student Records and
Registration Office for assistance.
Students who have not satisfied the minimum grade requirement for
a pre-requisite of a course may be dropped from the section by the
instructor or department chair.
These administrative drops must be filed by the instructor with the
Student Records and Registration Office no later than the drop deadline (last day to drop sections without receiving a “W” grade on the
transcript). (See Academic Deadlines.)
The withdrawal date is the date the student drops to a zero credit
level, unless otherwise approved by the Student Records and
Registration Office. Students may not withdraw from BYU-Idaho
after the last day to withdraw from school without receiving grades
earned and will have those grades recorded on their academic
records. (See Academic Calendar.)
Students are academically and financially responsible for all courses
for which they are registered. Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to drop his or her own class using the online registration
system. Students may contact the Student Records and Registration
Office for assistance.
48
Academic Policies
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
On-track students who withdraw will be considered as discontinuing
their attendance at BYU-Idaho and will lose their continuing student
status unless they apply for and are granted deferral status by the
Admissions Office. Students who withdraw and do not receive a
deferment must apply for re-admission to BYU-Idaho. Students may
not withdraw from a semester in which they have already earned a
grade for a course, including first block classes.
TRANSFER EVALUATION
The available deferment types are as follows: Continuing Student,
Missionary, and Medical. Following are the conditions to qualify for
each of the deferment types.
1. Continuing Student Deferment. This deferment is for one
semester only. Students must enroll in their next on-track
semester following the deferred semester to maintain their
admission status.
a. Be admitted and remain admissible as a regular day
school student.
b. Attend the most recent on-track semester prior to
requesting the deferment.
c. Submit the “Continuing Student Enrollment
Deferment Application” before the last day to
withdraw completely from school and receive “W”
grades and not the grades earned. For the specific
semester’s date, please see the Academic Calendar.
2. Missionary Deferment.
a. Be admitted and remain admissible as a regular day
school student.
b. Enter the MTC during the semester immediately
following the last semester of enrollment or prior to
the first semester of enrollment after being admitted.
c. Submit the “LDS Missionary Enrollment
Deferment Application” with a copy of the mission
call after receiving the mission call and before entering
the MTC.
d. Complete a full, honorable mission.
3. Medical Deferment.
a. Be admitted and remain admissible as a regular day
school student.
b. Attend the on-track semesters immediately prior to
and following the deferred semester.
c. Have a verifiable medical condition that prevents
enrollment.
d. Submit the “Medical Enrollment Deferment
Application” with a doctor’s statement to the
Admissions Office.
Transfer to BYU-Idaho
Transfer from BYU-Idaho
While BYU-Idaho does make an effort to establish articulation
agreements with other colleges and universities, students who are
considering transferring to another college or university should
review that institution’s transfer guidelines.
BYU-Idaho generally accepts college level transfer credits from
regionally-accredited colleges and universities. Courses from institutions that are not regionally-accredited are generally not transferable
to BYU-Idaho. Generally, courses completed 10 or more years ago
will be accepted as elective credit.
Only transfer courses with a grade of C- or higher are eligible for
transfer consideration. Additionally, transfer credit may be used to
satisfy degree requirements but will not be calculated into the BYUIdaho GPA. Transfer courses considered to be out of harmony with
established principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints will not be accepted by BYU-Idaho for credit consideration.
Full Disclosure of Transfer Schools
Failure to submit official transcripts to BYU-Idaho from all
institutions you have attended or are currently attending, both U.S.
and international, may result in disciplinary action including dismissal
from BYU-Idaho.
Official Transcripts
BYU-Idaho considers evaluation of courses only with an official
college or university transcript. Official transcripts are transcripts
mailed in a sealed envelope from the institution or through a secured
electronic transmission. BYU-Idaho will not evaluate transcripts
submitted via any method deemed unsecure by the University.
Transfer Students with Degrees
Transfer students who have been awarded an Associate Degree (not
including Applied Associate Degrees) from a regionally-accredited
college or university will be viewed as having met most of the
Foundations requirements for a Bachelor’s Degree. However,
transfer students are still responsible to meet all other graduation and
university requirements, including courses that are deemed essential
to the BYU-Idaho experience. Courses for students who have not
completed a transfer Associate Degree will be evaluated on a courseby-course basis. Transfer Associate Degrees that do not include a
broad liberal arts curriculum may be evaluated on a course-by-course
basis.
Student Military Service
Enrolled BYU-Idaho students called into active service in the armed
forces of the United States during the course of an academic term
receive assistance and exceptions with regard to withdrawing from
courses and receiving tuition refunds. This allowance does not apply
to students ordered to active duty in another country’s armed forces.
Students seeking this allowance should provide a copy of their official
military orders to the Student Records and Registration Office for
assistance.
Concurrent/Dual Enrollment Programs
Students may receive credit for courses previously taken through
an early college program if those courses were administered from a
regionally-accredited college or university and are recorded on an
official college or university transcript. Official transcripts must be
sent to BYU-Idaho to be considered for transferability. Concurrent or
dual enrollment courses sent on a high school transcript will not be
considered for transferability.
Online Courses Offered to Indiana Residents
BYU-Idaho is authorized by: The Indiana Board for Proprietary Education; 101 W. Ohio St., Suite 670, Indianapolis, IN 46204-1984
Advanced Placement (AP)
AP scores must be on an official Advanced Placement transcript.
Scores on high school transcripts will not be accepted. Students who
complete an AP exam with a score of 3 or above may receive University credit in that subject area according to the following list:
*See AP Chart immediately following this section.
49
Academic Policies
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Technical or Vocational Courses
Religion courses taken at the BYU Jerusalem Center (during a
student’s BYU–Idaho experience) will transfer to fulfill both religion
course content and the resident religion requirement. However, such
credit does not apply to the completion of the overall BYU-Idaho
residency requirement. BYU Jerusalem Center credits earned prior
to a student’s enrollment at BYU-Idaho can be used to fulfill religion
course content only, but may not be applied to any BYU-Idaho
residency requirement.
Generally, technical, vocational, or occupational courses are not transferable to BYU-Idaho.
International Baccalaureate (IB)
IB courses must be on an official International Baccalaureate
transcript. Students who complete IB courses with a grade of 5 or
above may receive University credit in that subject area according to
the following approved list:
*See IB Chart immediately following this section.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Earned credit hours will be posted as CLEP credit with a “P” grade.
Such credit may not be converted to a letter grade or correlated with
an existing BYU-Idaho course. Students may receive University credit
for CLEP exams as specified by the following list:
*See CLEP chart immediately following this section.
International Credits
Transcripts from international schools will not be evaluated until the
following conditions are met:
1. The student is an accepted student at BYU-Idaho.
2. The student provides a transcript and course description of
classes completed.
3. All transcripts and course descriptions must be in English.
Translated versions will only be accepted when one of the
following conditions are met:
a. The sending university provides an English translation.
b. The transcripts are translated by a qualified, independent
third-party (not family) translator.
c. A private credential evaluation company is used.
4. The student’s institution is recognized by its country’s
governing board as an accredited institution, and it is
similar in nature to a college or university in the United
States. Credits from institutions primarily focused on
vocational and technical training are generally not
transferable.
Once conditions are met, the Student Records and Registration
Office will evaluate courses for equivalency at BYU-Idaho. Courses
without an equivalent BYU-Idaho course are generally not transferable. All grades are changed to pass or fail grades. English classes
taken outside of a United States university will not be accepted for
meeting English requirements at BYU-Idaho.
Military Credit
BYU-Idaho awards military credit based on the American Council
of Education (ACE) recommendations found in the Guide to the
Evaluation of Education Experiences in the Armed Services. Military
courses without an equivalent BYU-Idaho course will not be transferred to the University for credit consideration.
Transfer of Credit from other Universities and Institutes of Religion
Religion credit earned at Church Education System Institutes of
Religion or other LDS Church schools will transfer to BYU-Idaho as
an equivalent religion course or elective credit so long as the course
is taken for credit and such credit is noted on an official transcript.
While these religion credits from other LDS Church schools or Institutes of Religion may transfer to fulfill required religion content, they
do not satisfy the BYU-Idaho resident religion requirement (religion
courses taken from BYU-Idaho). Coursework in religious studies
from any place other than an LDS Church school or Institute of
Religion will not be accepted toward filling the BYU-Idaho religion
requirements.

University Standards
President (Young) looked steadily
forward for a few minutes, as though
in deep thought, then said:
“Brother Maeser, I want you to remember that you ought not to teach even the
alphabet or the multiplication tables
without the Spirit of God. That is all.
God bless you. Goodbye.”

University Standards
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Principles of Personal Honor
Furthermore, a student is not in good honor code standing if his or
her ecclesiastical endorsement has either lapsed or been withdrawn,
or if the Student Honor Office has placed a hold on the student’s
records. All students are required to remain in good honor code
standing once admitted to BYU-Idaho, whether they are on or off
campus, on or off track.
“True at all Times”
• Personal honor is integrity in fulfilling commitments,
responsibilities, and covenants.
• Personal honor begins with willing obedience and is fully developed when we consistently govern ourselves by true principles.
• Personal honor increases spiritual strength through the ministry
of the Holy Ghost.
• Personal honor is central to every aspect of our lives, including
the BYU-Idaho experience.
• Personal honor brings us joy and happiness; deepens our desire
to love, serve, and lift others; and ultimately helps us to become
more like the Savior.
Individuals who are on any sex-offender registry are not eligible for
enrollment at BYU-Idaho. Registered sex offenders will not be allowed employment at BYU-Idaho nor other access to the campus.
University Standards and Policies
The University Standards are designed to support and strengthen
the Honor Code. Included are standards and policies on each of
the following: (1) academic honesty, (2) student life, (3) dress and
grooming, (4) continuing ecclesiastical endorsement, and (5) church
attendance. The below standards are not inclusive of all possible
violations of the Honor Code. Violations of university standards
and policies may result in Student Honor action that may include:
counseling and education, warning, steady upward course, probation,
suspension or expulsion from the university, and banning from access
to university properties.
CES Honor Code
Brigham Young University-Idaho and other Church Education
System (CES) institutions (Brigham Young University, Brigham
Young University-Hawaii, and LDS Business College) exist to
educate students in an atmosphere consistent with the ideals and
principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. These
institutions select employees and students who voluntarily live the
principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Living by those standards
is a condition of employment and admission. Individuals who are
not members of the Church are also expected to maintain the
same standards of honor, integrity, morality, and consideration of
others. By enrolling at BYU-Idaho, or accepting appointment as an
employee, individuals show their commitment to observe the Honor
Code standards approved by the Board of Trustees “at all times ...
and in all places” (Mosiah 18:9).
1. Academic Honesty
BYU-Idaho students should seek to be completely honest in all their
dealings. They should complete their own work and be evaluated for
that work. They should avoid academic dishonesty and misconduct
in all its forms, including but not limited to plagiarism, fabrication,
falsification, and cheating.
Plagiarism
Intentional plagiarism is the deliberate act of representing the words,
ideas, or data of another as one’s own without providing proper
attribution to the original author through quotation, reference, or
footnote.
“We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and
in doing good to all men.... If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of
good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things” (13th Article
of Faith)
.
As a matter of personal commitment, faculty, staff, and students of
BYU, BYU-Hawaii, BYU-Idaho, and LDS Business College seek to
demonstrate in daily living on and off campus those moral virtues
encompassed in the gospel of Jesus Christ, and will:
• Be honest
• Live a chaste and virtuous life
• Obey the law and all campus policies
• Use clean language
• Respect others
• Abstain from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, tea, coffee and sub
stance abuse
• Participate regularly in church services
• Observe Dress and Grooming Standards
• Encourage others in their commitment to comply with the
Honor Code
Inadvertent plagiarism involves the inappropriate, but non-deliberate,
use of another’s words, ideas, or data without proper attribution.
Although not a violation of the Honor Code, it is a form of academic
misconduct for which an instructor can impose appropriate academic
sanctions. Students who are in doubt as to whether they are providing proper attribution have the responsibility to consult with their
instructor and obtain guidance.
Plagiarism may occur with respect to unpublished as well as published
material. Examples include:
• Direct Plagiarism: the verbatim copying of an original source
without acknowledging the source
• Paraphrased Plagiarism: the paraphrasing of ideas from another
without attribution, causing a reader to mistake these ideas for the
writer’s own
• Plagiarism Mosaic: the borrowing of words, ideas, or data from an
original source and blending this original material with one’s own
writing, without acknowledging the source
• Insufficient Acknowledgment: the partial or incomplete attribution of words, ideas, or data from an original source
Good Honor Code Standing
When a student is in good honor code standing, they have the blessings of protection, preparation and peace. It also means a student’s
conduct is consistent with the Principles of Personal Honor, the CES
Honor Code, The Family: A Proclamation to the World, For the
Strength of Youth, the University Standards and Policies, and the
principles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, both on
and off campus. Students must be in good honor code standing to be
admitted to, continue enrollment at, and graduate from BYU-Idaho.
Students not in good honor code standing may be suspended from
the university. Excommunication, disfellowshipment, or disaffiliation
from the Church will automatically result in the loss of good honor
code standing.
Fabrication or Falsification
Fabrication or falsification occurs when a student invents or distorts
the origin or content of information used as authority. Examples
include:
• Citing a source that does not exist. Citing information from a
source that is not included in the source for which credit is given
• Citing a source for a secondary proposition that it doesn’t support
54
University Standards
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
• Citing a bibliography source when it was neither consulted nor
cited in the body of the paper
• Intentionally distorting the meaning or applicability of data
• Inventing data or statistical results to support conclusions
the name, incident, and action taken. If the occurrence is sufficiently
egregious, or if a pattern of dishonesty or misconduct is discovered,
the Student Honor Office may take additional action, based upon the
nature of the violation.
If a student disagrees with the determination or action and is unable
to resolve the matter to the mutual satisfaction of the student and the
instructor, he or she may have it reviewed through the university’s
grievance process.
Cheating
A student cheats when he or she attempts to give the appearance of
a level of knowledge or skill that has not been obtained. Examples
include:
• Copying from another person’s work during an examination or
while completing an assignment
• Allowing someone to copy work that is not his or her own during
an examination or while completing an assignment
• Using unauthorized materials during an examination or while
completing an assignment
• Collaborating on an examination or assignment without authorization
• Taking an examination or completing an assignment for another,
or permitting another to take an examination or to complete an
assignment that is not his or her own
2. Student Life
Camping and Overnight Activities
Overnight coed activities that are not university sponsored such as
spending the night together at the St. Anthony Sand Dunes, camping, staying in motels or cabins, and similar activities are prohibited.
No overnight guests of the opposite sex are permitted at any time in
single-student housing.
Computer Crime
Any person who knowingly and without permission accesses or attempts to access any campus computer, computer system, computer
program, or network without prior authorization is committing
computer fraud.
Other Academic Misconduct
Other academic misconduct includes other academically dishonest,
deceitful, or inappropriate acts which are intentionally committed.
Examples include:
• Inappropriately providing or receiving information or academic
work so as to gain unfair advantage over others
• Planning with another to commit any act of academic dishonesty
• Attempting to gain an unfair academic advantage for oneself or
another by bribery or by any act of offering, giving, receiving, or
soliciting anything of value to another for such purpose
• Changing or altering grades or other official educational records
• Obtaining or providing to another a test or answers to a test that
has not been administered
• Breaking and entering into a building or office for the purpose of
obtaining unauthorized materials
• Continuing work on an examination or assignment after the allocated time has elapsed
• Submitting the same work for more than one class without disclosure and approval
• Getting equal credit on group assignments when equal work was
not done
Copyright
The use of university-owned computers, databases, servers, or the
BYU-Idaho website or intranet for the storage, distribution, sharing,
viewing, or transmission of copyrighted materials without permission
is prohibited.
Curfew and Quiet Hours
Students should be in their own apartments by midnight Saturday
through Thursday nights and 1:00 a.m. on Friday nights. Apartment visitors must leave in time to arrive at their own apartments by
curfew. Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. daily and all day on
Sunday.
Disruptive Behavior
Brigham Young University Idaho is committed to provide a safe and
secure academic, cultural, social and spiritual environment consistent
with the Church Educational System Honor Code. Disruptive behavior is any behavior that adversely impacts the educational process and
environment of other students, the community or the administrative
functions of the university on or off campus.
Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty
Instructors are responsible to establish and communicate to students
their expectations of behavior with respect to academic honesty and
conduct in the course. The instructor will be responsible to investigate any incident of academic dishonesty or misconduct, determine
the circumstances, and take appropriate action. Examples of appropriate action include but are not limited to the following:
• Reprimanding the student orally or in writing
• Requiring work affected by the academic dishonesty to be redone
• Administering a lower or failing grade on the affected assignment,
test, or course
Drugs and Alcohol
The use or possession of substances, drink, drug, chemical or dangerous practice that is used to produce a “high” or other artificial effect
that may harm your body or mind and associated paraphernalia is
prohibited at all times.(For The Strength of Youth pg 26) The university may disclose the violation to the student’s parent/guardian.
This can be made with or without the students’ consent if students
are less than 21 years of age at the time of disclosure.
E-mail
Students agree not to share their password, send spam mail or any
inappropriate material (including messages of a harassing or salacious
nature), use their account for commercial purposes or any form of
advertising. Students must not enter the e-mail accounts of others
nor send e-mail messages posing as someone they are not. Students
must not harvest and provide lists of BYU-Idaho e-mail accounts to
anyone.
Refer student to the Student Honor Office. The Student Honor Office will complete an independent investigation and take appropriate
action. If the incident involves violation of a public law, e.g., breaking
and entering into an office or stealing an examination, the act should
be reported to University Security.
Both suspected and proven violations of the Academic Honesty
Policy should be reported to the Student Honor Office, detailing
55
University Standards
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Entertainment and the Media
For the Strength of Youth teaches us to, “choose wisely when using
media, because whatever you read, listen to, or look at has an effect
on you. Select only media that uplifts you. Do not attend, view, or
participate in anything that is vulgar, immoral, violent, or pornographic in any way. Do not participate in anything that presents
immorality or violence as acceptable.” Take care that your use of
media and entertainment does not dull your sensitivity to the Spirit or
interfere with your personal relationships with others. “Do not communicate anything over the Internet or through text that would be
inappropriate to share in person. Obey the laws that govern sharing
music, movies, and other copyrighted items” (pgs 11-13). See Apartment Living Standards at http://www.byui.edu/housing/aboutapproved-housing/apartment-living-standards
Pets
No pets of any kind are allowed on campus or in approved housing.
See Apartment Living Standards at www.byui.edu/housing/policies/
apartment-living-standards.
Pornography
Pornography in any form is not permitted. Use of pornography is a
serious sin and can lead to other sexual transgression. Pornography in
all forms is especially dangerous and addictive. Avoid pornography at
all costs. (For the Strength of Youth, pg 12)
Right of Access
BYU-Idaho is a private institution. Therefore all grounds, walkways,
roads, parking areas, and buildings owned by the university are
private property. The university retains the right and legal authority
to limit or otherwise restrict access to the campus for any reason it
may deem appropriate. As an educational institution, BYU-Idaho
affirms its right to guard or protect employees, students, and guests
from interferences that would disrupt any class, program, activity,
event, or permitted function. This includes stalking or other conduct
that is threatening or disruptive to students, employees, or guests on
campus properties.
Personal Carry Firearms and Weapons at BYU-Idaho
BYU-Idaho prohibits the possession or use of personal firearms and
weapons on property owned or controlled by the university, including
on or off campus BYU-Idaho approved housing (see Idaho Code 183302C, SB1254), and at programs sponsored by BYU-Idaho, which
occur off of campus property (i.e. Discovery, travel related to academic studies, student activities, etc.). For the purpose of this policy,
firearms or weapons include any device that can expel a projectile,
and/or other dangerous weapons, including knives, explosives, or
other items that, in their intended use, are capable of inflicting injury.
Because these items pose a clear risk to the persons and property on
BYU-Idaho’s campus, violation of this policy will result in appropriate
disciplinary sanctions.
Sexual Harassment, Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Violence
Sexual harassment, sexual assault, including sexual violence, domestic
violence, dating violence, stalking, and any other sex crimes are not
tolerated at BYU-Idaho on or off campus. Sexual harassment and
sexual assault refers to unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual
harassment and sexual assault may include 1) unwelcome sexual advances, 2) requests for sexual favors, and 3) other verbal, non-verbal,
or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Sexual harassment may also include denying or limiting, on the basis of sex, the student’s ability to
participate in or receive benefits, services, or opportunities in university programs. Sexual violence is defined as physical sexual acts perpetrated against a person’s will or where a person is incapable of giving
consent. This may include 1) rape, 2) sexual assault, 3) sexual battery,
and 4) sexual coercion. All such acts of sexual violence are forms of
sexual harassment covered under Unlawful Discrimination (Title IX).
BYU-Idaho’s policy against sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual
violence, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking extends not
only to employment situations but to academic situations as well. If
a student becomes aware of sexual harassment, sexual assault, sexual
violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or needs assistance or information related to these allegations they should contact
the Student Honor Office at 208-496-9300, Kimball Building Room
270; Dean of Students Office at 208-496-9200, Kimball Building
Room 290; or Human Resources Office at 208-496-1700, Kimball
Building Room 240. Victims of a sex crime, violence, or stalking
should contact the police where the crime occurred.
Under the laws of the state of Idaho, BYU-Idaho is permitted as a
private institution to place limitations on the carrying of weapons
onto its private property. No one (employees, students, or visitors)
except trained and authorized municipal, county, state, and federal
law enforcement officers, or trained and authorized BYU-Idaho
Security officers, is permitted to possess or carry firearms or other
weapons, concealed or not concealed, with or without a concealed
weapons permit, while upon the properties owned or controlled by
the university.
Specifically approved and sanctioned BYU-Idaho programs, such as
archery courses and Badger Creek programs, may use weapons under
the guidance of trained instructors, within the scope of their approved
mission. Members of the campus ROTC units may possess and/or
carry firearms or weapons with the firing pins or other actuating devices removed as part of official ROTC functions when authorized by
the ROTC administrator. ROTC units on campus are also allowed to
possess and store unloaded paint ball training equipment in a secured
storage area on campus.
BYU-Idaho campus is a weapons-free environment.
Single-Student Approved Housing
All single students under the age of 30 must live in approved housing
unless they live at home with their parents. Only admitted students
are eligible to live in approved housing beginning in their first assigned semester. Individuals enrolled in Continuing Education who
are not admitted to a track are not eligible to live in approved housing. Students who wish to live with a relative must receive an exception from the Housing & Student Living Office to live outside of approved housing. For complete policy see Housing and Student Living
at www.byui.edu/housing/policies/apartment-living-standards.
Harassment, Hazing, Intimidation or Aggressive Behavior
All forms of harassment including but not limited to verbal, physical,
mental, sexual, including sexual violence, hazing, intimidation, exploitation, or aggressive behavior that threaten or endanger the physical
or emotional health and safety of others is in violation of the Honor
Code. To report these types of behavior contact the Student Honor
Office at 208-496-9300, Kimball Bldg. Room 270 or the Dean of
Students Office at 208-496-9200, Kimball Bldg. Room 290.
Overnight Guests
Because overnight guests often cause interruption and inconvenience
to others, all such guests should be cleared with the apartment
manager and agreed upon by the roommates. No overnight guests
of the opposite sex are permitted at any time. Each tenant shall be
responsible for any damage, beyond reasonable wear and tear, to the
property of the apartment complex caused by the tenant, members of
the tenant’s family, or guests of the tenant.
Visitation Guidelines (by the Opposite Sex)
Men and women may visit in apartments of the opposite sex beginning at 10 a.m. Visitors of the opposite sex are not allowed in
bedrooms at any time. See Apartment Living Standards at www.byui.
edu/housing/policies/apartment-living-standards.

University Standards
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
3. Dress and Grooming Standards
Swim Wear
Brigham Young University Idaho invites students to refer to, For the
Strength of Youth when choosing their swimsuit attire. Specifically
we are taught, “Never lower your dress standards for any occasion.
Doing so sends the message that you are using your body to get
attention and approval and that modesty is important only when it is
convenient”.
Campus Attire
“Never lower your standards of dress. Do not use a special occasion
as an excuse to be immodest. When you dress immodestly, you send
a message that is contrary to your identity as a son or daughter of
God. You also send the message that you are using your body to get
attention and approval. Immodest clothing is any clothing that is
tight, sheer, or revealing in any manner.” (For the Strength of Youth,
pg.6-7).
Swimsuits should be modest in fabric, fit and style. Women’s suits
should cover the stomach. Men’s suits should sit at the waist.
Men and women should be neat and clean in appearance. Avoid
extreme clothing and hairstyles Pants, slacks or jeans should not be in
poor condition, frayed or torn and must be ankle length. Caps or hats
should not be worn in buildings. Shoes should be worn in all public
campus areas. Flip-flops and other casual footwear are inappropriate
on campus. Shorts are not appropriate campus attire. Do not disfigure yourself with tattoos. Body piercing’s are not appropriate.
4. Continuing Ecclesiastical Endorsement
The Board of Trustees of BYU-Idaho requires every student, attending the university to have an annual continuing ecclesiastical endorsement. This will be completed by the bishop of the ward in which the
student and/or membership record reside. The continuing endorsement must be completed prior to registering for classes.
Women
Clothing is immodest when it is sleeveless, does not cover the stomach or is low-cut in the front or back. Dresses and skirts should be
knee-length or longer (even with leggings worn). No capris may be
worn on campus. Women may wear one pair of earrings.
The bishop verifies the following:
•If LDS, the student is in full fellowship in the Church
•The student lives a chaste and virtuous life, including avoidance
of pornography, abstinence from sexual relations outside of marriage, and abstinence from homosexual conduct
•The student lives the Word of Wisdom by abstaining from
alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea, and other harmful substances
•The student demonstrates appropriate and consistent church
activity

neatly trimmed and may not extend beyond or below the corners of
the mouth. Beards are not appropriate.
The student verifies they are striving to live the Honor Code. Students will renew their endorsement during the first semester of their
assigned track. Online students without an assigned track will renew
their endorsement annually during the semester of their initial enrollment.
Dress Standards for Men and Women at Campus Events
Activity and Recreational Attire
Dress standards for each event will be specified prior to the event.
If no standard is indicated, the minimum standard is campus attire.
Modest casual attire may be worn at certain activities and events.
Shorts and other pants ending above the ankle are inappropriate for
campus. Shorts are only allowed at playing fields and must be modest
in length. Traveling across campus to activities in shorts is not appropriate.
5. Church Attendance
One of the greatest advantages Brigham Young University-Idaho
offers its students is the opportunity to be a member of a student
ward and stake. Sunday meetings, Monday home evenings and other
activities contribute to the spiritual and social growth of each student.
Progress toward spirituality and righteousness is greatly enhanced
through participation in the sacrament, priesthood, Relief Society and
auxiliary meetings provided each week. BYU-Idaho’s most important mission is to encourage students to live the principles and build
testimonies of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
Event Attire
The minimum standard for men will be shirt and tie. Jeans are not
appropriate. The minimum standard for women will be a dress (or
a skirt and blouse or sweater). Casual dress or clothing will not be
permitted.
Attendance in your assigned ward is a requirement for continued
enrollment. Students who do not attend their church meetings may
have their endorsements withdrawn.
Semiformal Dance Attire
Men: A tuxedo is optional, while church attire such as a sports coat
or dressy sweater is recommended. A dress shirt and tie, formal
half-collar shirt without tie, or turtleneck with a sport coat and dress
slacks are acceptable. Dress shoes are required. Athletic shoes, Tshirts, kilts, jeans, and grubby attire are not appropriate.

Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Financial Aid Determination Date: Date used to determine the
number of eligible credit hours for awarding of Federal Financial
Aid.
STUDENT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
This section describes the CONTRACTUAL FINANCIAL
AGREEMENT between Brigham Young University-Idaho
(BYU-I) and each student who attends any regular school session
and/or enrolls in any credit class.
1. Enrollment at BYU-I constitutes a contractual financial obligation
to pay tuition and fees for classes in which a student is enrolled.
2. It is the student’s responsibility to abide by published payment
and registration deadlines.
3. BYU-I Personal Account information can only be released to the
student. It is the student’s responsibility to notify parents/legal
guardians of account balances, or to authorize a parent/legal
guardian to access a student’s BYU-I Personal Account for payment purposes.
4. Federal Student Aid Title IV funds (financial aid), if authorized,
automatically pays charges assessed to the student’s account for
tuition, fees, room, and board (if contracted through BYU-I).
5. The student is responsible for repayment of financial aid funds
upon withdrawal from school or otherwise failing to meet eligibility requirements for financial aid disbursed to the student.
6. The student may give authorization to BYU-I to use financial aid
funds to pay all charges incurred on the student’s BYU-I Personal
Account by completing a Federal Financial Aid Authorization
Form.
7. The student is responsible for payment of tuition/fees by the
published deadlines regardless of whether financial aid, scholarship, or grant funds are to be used, subject to late charges, interest
charges, and other penalties as described below.
8. The student is responsible for payment of any and all charges
incurred on the student’s BYU-I Personal Account during the
course of any school semester or session.
9. If a student does not pay the balance of tuition/fees by the
published deadline, the student is responsible to pay an additional
5% late charge, and a financial hold will be placed on the student’s
BYU-I Personal Account restricting registration for future semesters and the ability to obtain official transcripts or diplomas.
10. A service charge of 1% per month will be assessed for any outstanding balances on a student’s BYU-I Personal Account.
11. Outstanding balances that continue to remain unpaid will be subject to customary collection proceedings, including from BYU-I
and/or third-party collection agencies. Collection proceedings
may result in reporting to credit bureaus. The student is responsible for all collection costs incurred in the collection of debts
owed, including attorney’s fees.
Full-Time/Part-time Status
Tuition is based upon the number of registered credits (including
audited classes). Students taking 12 or more credits per semester are
considered full-time, and will be assessed tuition at the full-time rate.
Otherwise, a student is considered part-time, and tuition is assessed
for each credit for which the student is registered.
Tuition Computation/Assessment
Tuition is computed and assessed at the time a student registers for
classes. A student’s final tuition assessment will be the higher of the
number of credits registered for at one of three dates as follows:
1) Assessment Date;
2) Registration Deadline; or
3) Financial Aid Determination Date.
Below are some examples of how the tuition assessment is computed.
Please note that in the examples, the Assessment Date is after the
Registration Deadline, and 12 credits represent a full-time student
and could be 12 or more credits.

For full-time students no additional tuition is assessed for classes
added after the Payment Deadline. However, if individual classes are
dropped which result in the student becoming a part-time student, a
full tuition refund will be given if the classes are dropped prior to the
Registration Deadline. For further tuition refund information, see
the Tuition Refunds section below.
For part-time students, any classes added will be assessed additional
tuition for the appropriate number of credits up to a maximum of
the full-time rate. However, if individual classes are dropped, a full
tuition refund will be given if the classes are dropped prior to the
Registration Deadline. For further tuition refund information, see
the Tuition Refunds section below.
Class Fees
Certain classes may have an additional fee due to the unique expenses
associated with that class. Generally, these fees are for supplies, travel,
lab fees, private lessons, or other expenses associated with a particular
class. Class fees are considered purchased and used after the Registration Deadline. There is no refund of class fees after the Registration
Deadline, unless the instructor certifies to the Bursar’s Office that a
refund is warranted.
TUITION, FEES, AND OTHER CHARGES
Definition of Critical Dates
Assessment Date: Date in which classes were added to or dropped
from a student’s class schedule.
Payment Deadline: Date in which tuition is billed and posted to the
student’s Personal Account and in which full payment is due (First
Day of Classes for a semester or term).
Other Charges
Except as specifically noted below, other items or services purchased
or used from various campus locations may be paid by one or more
of the following payment methods: cash, check, credit card, I-Card,
or charged to the student’s Personal Account. Items charged to a
student’s Personal Account are due on the last day of the month following purchase or service. Federal Financial Aid may be authorized
by the student to pay for these charges. If the student does not pay
the outstanding charges by one week following the start of classes,
a financial hold will be placed on the student’s Personal Account
restricting registration for future semesters, and the ability to obtain
official transcripts or diplomas, a late charge of 5% will be assessed on
any outstanding balance in addition to a 1% per month service charge
on any outstanding balance.
Registration Deadline: Last day to register or add classes to a
student’s class schedule, and the last day to drop classes and
receive a full tuition/fee refund (one week after the start of classes
for a semester or term.) Late charges on any unpaid balance of
tuition/fees will be assessed on this date.
Waiver Deadline: Last day for a student to enroll dependents in
the Student Health Plan, and the last day to submit a waiver
of insurance, if eligible. This date is the same date as the
Registration Deadline (one week after the start of classes for a
semester or term).

Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Books and Supplies
TUITION PAYMENT DEADLINE
Books and school supplies may be purchased at the University Store
using cash, check, bank card, declining balance using an I-Card, or by
charging them to the student’s Personal Account.
The tuition payment deadline is the first-day of classes for all
students. However, no late charges will be assessed until one week
after the start of classes to allow for changes to class schedules.
Student Health Plan
Full-time students who have been charged the full-time rate will not
incur additional tuition charges for classes added subsequent to the
Tuition Payment Deadline, regardless of whether they were semester
or block classes. However, any additional class fees will be assessed
and will be required to be paid in full immediately.
BYU-I requires all traditional, matriculated students to have adequate
medical insurance coverage in the Rexburg area while enrolled in
school and wherever they are living during off-track periods.
To satisfy this requirement, all students are required to enrolled in
the Student Health Plan or complete a health Plan waiver when registering for classes. A student may waive the Student Health Plan if
they are already covered by an Affordable Care Act compliant health
care plan, or insurance is provided by their parents, their employer,
their spouse’s employer, Medicare or Complete Coverage Idaho
Medicaid.
Part-time students who add classes after the Tuition Payment
Deadline will be required to pay additional tuition immediately, up to
the maximum of the full-time rate, plus additional class fees.
All students registered for Second Block Only classes or Summer
Session classes are considered part-time. Students who add classes
subsequent to the Tuition Payment Deadline will be required to pay
additional tuition immediately, plus additional class fees.
Enrollment in the Student Health Plan will be effective the first day
of the semester. Students will not be enrolled if they submit a Health
Plan Waiver by the waiver deadline. Limited additional enrollment
options are available for students that graduate or lose their status as
a continuing student.
TUITION REFUNDS
Tuition refunds will only be given as follows:
1. Classes dropped up to the Registration Deadline (one week after classes start – see current academic calendar for specific dates)
Students may drop classes at any point during the registration
period up until the Registration Deadline. A full tuition refund
will be given for classes dropped up to the Registration Deadline.
NO REFUND will be given for dropped classes after the Registration Deadline unless the student officially withdraws from
BYU-Idaho (see below).
2. Complete withdrawal from school
When a student withdraws from BYU-I after the Registration
Deadline, a pro-rated refund will be given until 60% of the term
or semester has passed. There will be NO REFUND given when
a student withdraws from school after 60% of the term or semester has elapsed.
3. Exceptions to the Tuition Refund Policy
BYU-I recognizes there may be situations beyond a student’s
control where an exception to the above policy may be warranted.
The following exceptions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis
to determine whether the situation merits an exception:
A) Death of the student;
B) Death of an immediate family member where continuing
school is impractical;
C) Medical condition requiring extended medical care where
continuing school is impractical;
D) Acceptance of a qualifying internship.
When enrolled in the Student Health Plan, the premium will be
charged to the student’s Personal Account and is due and payable by
the Payment Deadline. If the student does not pay the premium by
the Registration Deadline, a 5% late charge on any unpaid balance
will be assessed. In addition, a 1% per month service charge on any
outstanding balance will be assessed until the premium is paid in full.
Student Health Center Medical Care
Only Matriculating students and their dependents have access to the
Student Health Center. Costs for visits and services are the responsibility of the student. If the student has insurance coverage other than
through the Student Health Plan, the student has the responsibility
to submit claims to that insurance company. The Student Health
Center does not bill insurance other than through the BYU-I Student
Health Plan.
Campus Housing
Students may enter into a Housing contract for on-campus housing
through the Housing Office. Payments are due in accordance with
Housing contracts signed by the student.
Long Distance Phone Cards
Students living in on-campus housing may acquire a BYU-I long distance phone card through the Bursar’s Office. Long distance charges
will be billed to the student’s Personal Account.
Federal Student Aid (Title IV) Refunds
When a student receives Federal Student Aid (Title IV) funds to
attend BYU-I, and subsequently withdraws from school, federal laws
and regulations require BYU-I to determine whether any unearned
Title IV funds were awarded and whether those funds need to be
returned to the Department of Education and/or to the lending
agency. For further information regarding return of Title IV funds,
please see the Student Financial Aid section of the Catalog or contact
the Financial Aid & Scholarships Office.

PERSONAL ACCOUNTS
Credit Card Policy
Each student has their own Personal Account at BYU-I where
charges, payments, deposits, and disbursement of financial aid, scholarships, payroll, etc. are recorded.
BYU-Idaho accepts Visa, MasterCard, and Discover for payment on a
students Personal Account. A convenience fee will be charged for all
payments made using a credit card. Currently the processing fee is

Third-Party Authorization
Any transactions performed using the student’s Net ID and Password
are considered to be performed by the student. Therefore, care
should be taken to safeguard this information and not disclose it to
anyone else. See below for information on how to authorize a thirdparty to make payments on your Personal Account.
Students should safeguard their Net ID and password and should not
share them with anyone. Students are responsible for any transactions done online through their Personal Account.

otherwise are not attending school will have Personal Account Statements mailed to their mailing address on file at BYU-I. Students are
encouraged to keep their mailing address current at all times.

Send payment to:
Bursar’s Office
Brigham Young University-Idaho
525 S Center St
Rexburg, ID 83460-1625
BYU-I can only accept funds that cover a student’s educational
expenses. A cost of attendance amount is established which includes
tuition, fees, room and board, other required expenses, and a modest
allowance for cost of living (see the Tuition, Fees and Expenses Section of the catalog). This amount represents the maximum amount
we can accept on behalf of a student for a single academic year. If
a student overpays, the Bursar’s Office will review the account and
contact the student to determine how any overpayment should be
handled. In some cases the funds may be set aside for the following
year. In other cases, the payment will be refunded to the sender.
BYU-Idaho I-Card
All traditional matriculating students and their spouses can obtain
a BYU-Idaho identification card (called I-Card) at the ID Center
located in the Bursar’s Office, KIM 130. This card is used campuswide to identify students and is required to 1. transact business at the
Cashier’s Office, 2. use any I-Card dollars or Dining Dollars, etc.
This card serves as an Activity Card which includes access to the Hart
Building, McKay Library, and other facilities on campus. Spouses
must purchase an annual pass to the Hart Building before they can
use those facilities. This card also entitles students to attend music,
drama, and other performances at a discount.

individuals in the household, number attending college, value of
savings accounts and assets, etc., will need to be reported.
For more detailed and up- to-date information, please visit the StudentFinancial Aid website at www.byui.edu/financial-aid.
After the student’s FAFSA has been submitted to the U.S.
Department of Education, a Student Aid Report (SAR) will be
emailed to the student, usually within three to four business days.
This same SAR is sent electronically to BYU-Idaho, where the
information is used to determine the types of aid for which the
student is eligible.
BYU-Idaho offers Federal Student Government Aid and University
Aid to assist students in financing their education.
FEDERAL AID (Title IV Funds)
A Federal Pell Grant is awarded by the U.S. Department of
Education on the basis of financial need. Pell Grants are based on the
estimated cost of attendance, length of the enrollment period, and
number of credits a student carries. The student does not have to be
enrolled full-time to qualify for a Pell Grant award; however taking
less than full-time credits will result in a prorated award. The student
must be an undergraduate who does not already have a bachelor’s
degree. Pell Grants do not have to be repaid.
One week after submitting a FAFSA, students should check their
online Financial Aid Document Tracking link (under the FINANCES
tab at my.byui.edu) to verify their FAFSA was received by BYU-Idaho
and to determine if any additional information is needed to process
their application. Any additional documentation requested should
be submitted as soon as possible to avoid delays in receiving federal
financial aid. Students can expect federal aid award information to
be available in their online Financial Aid Awards link (also under the
FINANCES tab at my.byui.edu) within 8-10 weeks of submitting the
last requested document.
The Subsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan is need-based.
Principal and interest payments are postponed while the student is
enrolled in school at least half time and during the six-month grace
period after graduation or ceasing to attend school. While the student
is enrolled at least half time the federal government pays the interest
for the student. To apply, see “How to Apply for a Federal Student
Loan” in this section.
How to Apply for a Federal Student Loan
To apply for federal loans, students must first complete the FAFSA.
Once the FAFSA is completed and the student’s financial aid award
amounts have been determined, a student loan offer will appear on
the Financial Aid Awards link (under the FINANCES tab at my.byui.
edu. Loan offers are generally made for two semesters at a time. This
means any loan amount accepted would be split equally between the
two semesters.
The Unsubsidized Federal Direct Stafford Loan is not need-based.
Students may qualify for this program as long as their educational
costs exceed the amount of financial assistance awarded. Principal
and interest payments are postponed while the student is enrolled in
school at least half time and during the six-month grace period after
graduation or ceasing to attend school. The student is responsible for
paying the interest that accrues on the loan. To apply, see “How to
Apply for a Federal Student Loan” in this section.
To receive loan funds, students must accept any portion of their loan
offer from their award statement and complete a Master Promissory
Note (MPN) and entrance loan counseling at www.studentloans.
gov. Once these steps are completed, loan funds would generally be
available within a few business days. Please note: students must be
enrolled in at least 6 credits to be eligible for federal student loans.
Federal Direct Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students(PLUS)
is available for dependent undergraduate students. The amount
borrowed by the parent may not exceed the estimated cost of
attendance less other financial assistance the student has been or
will be awarded during the period of enrollment. Please contact the
Student Financial Aid Office to determine eligibility for individual
loan amounts.
Deadlines for Federal Student Aid
Priority Deadline
In order to receive federal aid by the tuition payment deadline,
students need to have their FAFSA and required documents
submitted two months prior to attending BYU-Idaho. Students
not meeting this priority deadline will not be denied aid; however,
funding will not be available until later in the school year and late
fees will be assessed. The Student Financial Aid Office will NOT be
responsible for any late fees if this deadline is not met.
General Eligibility for Federal Student Aid
In general, a financial aid recipient must meet the following eligibility
standards:
1. Have a high school diploma, G.E.D. certificate, or a high
school equivalency certificate issued by the state.
2. Be admitted and enrolled as a degree-seeking student.

by the student’s last day of enrollment for the academic year. Students
should complete their FAFSA and submit any required documents no
later than two months before their last day of attendance.
Verification
If a student’s FAFSA is selected for verification, the verification
process must be completed within 110 days after the student’s last
day of enrollment or approximately Sept. 15, 2015, (whichever is
earlier). It is best to turn in all documents no later than two month
before the last date of enrollment. Please do NOT procrastinate! It
is the student’s responsibility to be aware of all deadlines. For more

Student Loans
UNIVERSITY AID
Student loans must be originated by a student’s last day of
enrollment at BYU-Idaho for the academic year.
To be considered for university scholarships, students must complete
the BYU-Idaho Scholarship Application each year online. The
application is available through the Student Financial Aid website
at www.byui.edu/financial-aid from November 1st-April 15th.
Scholarship eligibility is determined through the application for the
following academic year. Online students are not currently eligible
for university scholarships. See below for more information regarding
each scholarship type:
Financial Aid Determination Date (FADD)
Pell Grant amounts are based on the number of credits a student is
registered for on the FINANCIAL AID DETERMINATION DATE.
This is the last date to drop classes without receiving a W grade. Pell
Grant amounts are recalculated as needed after the Financial Aid
Determination Date. Students may owe funds or receive additional
funds based their credits as of FADD. If BYU-Idaho receives a
student’s FAFSA information after the FADD, the student’s Pell
Grant amount would be based on his/her enrollment as of the day
the student’s financial aid application is processed.
Academic Scholarships for Incoming Freshmen
New freshman applying to BYU-Idaho may be considered for this
scholarship. Scholarship amounts ranges from quarter to full LDS
tuition. The scholarship is awarded based on academic criteria (High
School GPA, ACT/SAT scores). Students must be regular daytime
students enrolled in 14 or more credits during the semester for which
they are awarded.
Returning Federal Student Aid (Title IV Funds)
When a student completely withdraws from school, the university is
required to determine the percentage of Title IV funds “earned” by
the student and to return the unearned portion to the government.
This percentage is determined according to the number of days the
student participated in classes. The return of funds policy follows
these steps:
1. Determine the percentage of the enrollment period
completed by the student. (If the calculated percentage
exceeds 60%, the student has “earned” all of his/her Title
IV aid for the enrollment period.) Days participated ÷ Days
in Enrollment Period
= Percentage of Enrollment Period Completed
2. Calculate the “earned” portion of the federal aid.
Total Aid Awarded x Percentage of Enrollment Period Completed = Earned Aid
3. Determine the amount of unearned aid.
Total Aid Awarded - Earned Aid = Unearned Aid
4. Determine the amount of unearned charges. Total Institutional Charges x Percentage of Unearned Aid = Unearned
Charges
5. Return the Lesser of Unearned Aid or Unearned Charges,
based on the type of aid disbursed, in the following order:
(1) Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan, (2) Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan, (3) Federal PLUS (Parent) Loan, and
(4) Federal Pell Grant.
Academic Scholarships for Continuing Students
Academic scholarships are available for BYU-Idaho continuing/
returning students who have accumulated between 28-129 BYUIdaho credits. New transfer students who enroll with at least 28
earned credits would be considered based on transfer GPA. Transfer
students who do not qualify upon entry must earn 28 BYU-Idaho
credits to be considered. Awards are made based on the semesters
the student indicates on the scholarship application. Students with
current awards are reevaluated after each winter semester for the
following academic year. Students must be regular daytime students
enrolled in 14 or more credits during the semester for which they are
awarded.
General BYU-Idaho Scholarships
General BYU-Idaho scholarships are available to all new and
continuing students based on a student’s financial need, involvement,
and self-reliance. Students must complete the FAFSA to be
considered. These scholarships are awarded based on full-time
enrollment (12 or more credits); however, a prorated portion of the
scholarship can be received if the student takes at least 6 credits. To
learn more, visit the scholarship section of our website at
www.byui.edu/financial-aid.
Talent Scholarships
Veterans Benefits
Talent scholarships are available for students with talents in Art,
Dance, Music, Theatre Arts, and Journalism. Students should
contact the appropriate department for information on requirements

apply toward graduation. If students change their major, status or
enrollment after certification, additional forms need to be completed.
Please contact the Student Financial Aid Office for more information

recalculated as needed after the Financial Aid Determination Date.
Students may owe funds or receive additional funds based on their
credits as of FADD. It is a student’s responsibility to repay any scholarship funds for which he/she is not eligible.

Introduction
The Department of Academic Support offers a variety of learning

Thursday, and 11 am - 2 pm on Saturday, (closed for devotionals and
forums) with a staff of tutors available to answer math questions for
all math classes. Test review is also available for Math 100 and 101.
Tutoring Center
Students who desire help beyond their regular classroom instruction
may seek assistance at the Tutoring Center. Tutors are chosen from
students who have succeeded academically in the class, completed a
tutor-training program, and have been approved by their department.
There is no cost for this service; however, students are encouraged
to seek first all possible help from instructors and class help sessions
before signing up for tutoring. To sign up and schedule tutoring appointments, see the tutor request link on your my.byui.edu page.
One-on-one tutors: This service is recommended for those desiring
more individualized help than what is offered in the drop-in center.
Free tutors are available for all math classes offered at BYU–Idaho.
One-on-one tutoring sessions can be scheduled online. Go to
my.byui.edu and under the links select Tutor Request. Any inquiries
can be directed to MCK 272.
Reading Center

skills In the Center, tutors strive to give students an opportunity
to improve those reading strategies necessary for college success.
Students who come to the Reading Center for help, may work to
improve any of the following: vocabulary, reading comprehension,
spelling, study skills, and reading efficiency. The Center offers a study
buddy to any student who needs assistance in organizing and completing assignments. Students receiving help may register for credit
(E100 or E102) or may come for no credit. Many students come to
the Reading Center for help with understanding reading assignments
in their classes. Everyone and anyone is welcome.

courses offered to ESL students. Students receive college credit
towards graduation for all of these courses.
Study skills courses include GS-102, a one credit block class designed

motivation. Time management, retention, note taking techniques,
text book study methods, test taking strategies, and critical thinking
skills are all part of the curriculum. GS-105 College Success is a two

The Student Activities Program
Volunteer
The BYU-Idaho Student Activities program invites individuals to
experience the power of acting for themselves through involvement
in student-led programs and events.
Students who desire a more active role can volunteer their time as a
coach, workshop instructor, or can take responsibility to organize an
event like a blood drive. These are just a few of the hundreds of ways
students can be involved. Lead a one-time event like a music show
or coordinate weekly efforts for ongoing programs like community
service opportunities. As students participate and volunteer they gain
new knowledge and skills that can become additional opportunities
to volunteer time in a variety of leadership roles.
Students have the opportunity to Participate, Volunteer, and Lead.
As students take action and become involved they experience what
Elder Henry B. Eyring called “leadership training of the broadest and
most exciting kind.” With activities and events from eight different
areas there really is something for everyone. We provide a wide range
of activities to meet the diverse interests and abilities of the students.
New ideas are always welcome and can be proposed through our
Student Activities website.
Lead
In the Activities program, students can organize, lead, and train other
students. Through this unique program of participation students
develop personal and spiritual qualities that prepare them for life.
Student leaders are given a framework where they counsel with
advisors and then act for themselves. Students take the lead in, and
are responsible for, organizing and administering every aspect of the
day-to-day operations of the program.
Participate
Each semester there are literally thousands of opportunities to get
involved. Students can choose to participate in weekly dances or
talent workshops, play a competitive or recreational sport, or learn
more about the unique opportunities in Southeast Idaho through the
outdoor program. Opportunities to serve or learn new life skills also
exist. Students can choose from a variety of things such as performing
in a show, going rock-climbing, or attending a fitness class or wellness
workshop.
Make more of your educational experience at BYU-Idaho by becoming involved in the Student Activities program. To learn more contact

English Transitional Center (ETC)
Department of
Academic Support
The English Transitional Center (ETC) is designed to help students
with English as a Second Language (ESL) adjust to their role as
matriculated college students. The ETC helps students improve and
practice their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills.
Through English 102 modules, students may receive individual
(peer tutor) help with pronunciation, grammar, writing, vocabulary,
reading comprehension, and conversation skills. English 102 may be
taken for credit or non credit. English 108 (orientation and verbal
communication) and English 109 (writing) are classroom setting
courses offered through the Academic Support Center for second
language speaker students who have been accepted to BYU–Idaho.
Students receive college credit towards graduation for all of these
courses.
Writing Center
The Writing Center provides a relaxed environment for students
to work with trained assistants to improve their writing process.
Qualified student assistants work individually with writers with free,
twenty-minute sessions. Because the Center teaches writing through
revision, students may expect help throughout the writing process
as they move papers from rough drafts to final projects. Writing Assistants work as an objective audience and involve students directly in
the critical thinking/writing process. Writing Assistants and students
work together to discover and generate ideas, develop logical concrete support, organize and focus evidence, and format documentation.

The Center also helps students revise research papers, polish resumes,
letters of application, proposals, summaries, responses, and literary
critiques. In addition, the Writing Center helps students reinforce
basic skills through practice on C.L.I.P.S.* a computer program that
utilizes computer drills to strengthen weak areas in punctuation,
grammar, and usage. Walk-ins are welcome. The Center is a great
resource for students especially for those who need assistance in the
early stages of the drafting process.
Introduction
The Academic Support Center offers a variety of learning support
programs described below. These include the tutoring, reading, writing, math, study skills, presentation practice, and English transitional
centers.
Tutoring Center
Math Study Center
Students who desire help beyond their regular classroom instruction
may seek assistance at the Tutoring Center. Tutors are chosen from
students who have succeeded academically in the class, completed a
tutor-training program, and have been approved by their department.
There is no cost for this service. To sign up and schedule tutoring appointments, see the tutor request link on your my.byui.edu page.
The Math Study Center provides support for all math students on
campus with three separate services:
The drop-in Math Study Center is open 55 hours per week, 9 am - 5
pm on Monday and Friday, 9 am - 9 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, and 11 am - 2 pm on Saturday, (closed for devotionals and
forums) with a staff of tutors available to answer math questions for
all math classes. Test review is also available for Math 100 and 101.
Reading Center
The Reading Center offers help with basic and advanced reading
skills in the Center. Tutors strive to give students an opportunity
to improve those reading strategies necessary for college success.
Students who come to the Reading Center may work to improve
any of the following: vocabulary, reading comprehension, spelling,
study skills, and reading efficiency. The center offers a study-buddy
to any student who needs assistance in organizing and completing
assignments. (Students receiving help may register for credit (E100
or E102) or may come for no credit). Many students come to the
Reading Center for help with understanding reading assignments in
their classes. Everyone and anyone is welcome.
One-on-one tutors: This service is recommended for those desiring
more individualized help than what is offered in the drop-in center.
Free tutors are available for all math classes offered at BYU–Idaho.
One-on-one tutoring sessions can be scheduled online. Go to
my.byui.edu and under the links select Tutor Request. Any inquiries
can be directed to MCK 272.
Math requirement preparation courses (Math 100A, Math 100B, and
Math 101) are designed to prepare students for their university math
requirements: They are taught in a lecture based setting by a dynamic
group of professors.

Academic Support Centers website to help clarify concepts that students frequently struggle with. Students also have the option to chat
with a math or writing tutor. Finally, students who need additional
help can sign up for a tutoring session with an online tutor. These
sessions utilize technologies like Skype to help simulate a face-toface tutoring experience. The services are available at no cost to the

Accounting
Additional Information
1. As an integrated major, Accounting not only prepares you with
job-ready skills in accounting but also allows the selection of other
courses in packaging a bachelor’s degree to fit your individual
needs and goals. Students with Accounting degrees are some of
the most sought after by recruiters.
2. To bridge the gap between academics and industry, the Accounting major requires a semester internship during your junior or
senior year. By then, you will have sufficient accounting training
to make a valuable contribution as an intern. 3. The coursework will stress analytical, interpretive, and communication skills. Rather than specializing in tax, financial reporting or
other regulatory requirements, you will have sufficient background to recognize and anticipate important accounting issues
and the training to do research to find the answers needed by the
decision-making team.
4. Students who major in Accounting must also choose an approved
cluster. The list of approved clusters is found in the major requirements on the following page.

Minor in Animal Science (140)
The animal science minor is for those students NOT majoring in a
current animal science degree but wishing to receive concentrated
training which can be coupled with a complementary major.
Kim Chidester, Office Assistant, Livestock Center (208) 496-4521
Department Description
The Department of Animal and Food Science prepares students to
understand and contribute to key requirements of human existence:
domesticated animal production, food processing and preservation,
and human nutrition. Three conditions in the world create a critical
need for study in these related fields: an increasing world population,
a decreasing amount of agricultural lands and a need to improve
human health and nutrition. These realities present a great variety of
opportunities for well-trained workers to serve mankind.
Minor in Nutrition (242)
The nutrition minor is designed to enhance the employability and
success of students planning on pursuing jobs that require a basic
background in nutrition. Those that would benefit professionally
from complimenting their education with a nutrition minor might include those entering the Healthcare field, Education and others. The
course selection is designed to provide a foundation in the physiology
and chemistry of nutrition, but also the practical skills that are needed
to plan and implement healthy dietary practices.
Students in these majors are focused on the scientific principles
of animal care, production of food animals, and the preservation,
processing, and presentation of that food. Learning occurs in these
areas of study through close interaction between faculty and students,
numerous opportunities for hands-on experiences, and related work
experiences or internships.
Employment opportunities for students with a background in animal
and food science are excellent and always in demand. Examples of
careers include livestock operation managers, livestock consultants,
food product developers, food safety workers, food scientists, pharmaceutical company representatives, animal health workers, meat and
dairy processing workers, genetics specialists, government agency
workers, etc.

Department Description
The Department of Applied Plant Science emphasizes the relationship between the art and science of plant culture. This relationship
affects production on thousands of acres as well as on a smaller,
more urban scale in residential gardens and in the ornamental use of
plants where art is specifically emphasized. In all these areas, plants
are an integral part of the human experience. The emphasis on both
production and aesthetics in the department’s degrees and programs
has prophetic roots:
“There is a great work for the Saints to do. Progress, and improve
upon and make beautiful everything around you. Cultivate the
earth, and cultivate your minds. Build cities, adorn your habitations, make gardens, orchards, and vineyards, and render the earth
so pleasant that when you look upon your labors you may do so with
pleasure, and that angels may delight to come and visit your beautiful locations.” Brigham Young, Deseret News, Aug. 8, 1860, 177.
Students in these programs apply scientific knowledge to practical,
hands-on experience in the Thomas E Ricks Gardens and
Greenhouses, the Hill View Farm, the Plant Shop, the Ag Shop (Ag
Engineering Building), and The Flower Center. They also provide
produce and ornamentation for the BYU Idaho campus, events,
community and local farmers markets. The department focuses
on learning how plants grow, how to propagate them, and how to
prepare them for consumer use. From basic plant science, to artistic
embellishments for life events, this department offers a buffet of
opportunities to improve the quality of life.

Biotechnology (700-70)
Program Descriptions
Biotechnology is the application of biological information and techniques to meet medical, agricultural, and environmental needs. Students selecting this emphasis will be well prepared to pursue graduate
studies in genetics, molecular biology, cellular biology, biochemistry
and physiology. The emphasis will also prepare students for immediate employment as entry level technicians in one of hundreds of
different biotechnology companies and university research labs. The
emphasis will also serve pre-professional students interested in one of
the medical professions.
B.S. in Biology (700)
The biology degree provides a solid foundation in biology. It is
designed to prepare students for professional programs in medicine,
dentistry, optometry, podiatry, physical/occupational therapy, etc., or
graduate programs in botany, ecology, natural resources, biotechnology, microbiology, neurobiology, etc. In addition, the degree
provides preparation for those students seeking employment after
completing a bachelors degree. Students majoring in Biology select
one of the following emphases depending on their interests and
career goals.
Microbiology (700-55)
The Microbiology emphasis is designed to prepare students for career
opportunities and graduate work in microbiology and related fields
such as bacteriology, immunology, medical microbiology, and virology. Although this emphasis does not give students the depth that a
degree in microbiology does, it will give students sufficient background and training to work in laboratories using basic microbiological techniques and to pursue further study in the field.

conservation, rangeland ecology, rangeland/livestock production
consulting, wildlife and livestock production in a rangeland setting, or
for post-baccalaureate studies in rangeland ecology related fields.
Ecology Emphasis (488-180)
The Ecology emphasis is designed to be somewhat broader than the
other emphasis in the 487 series and should be taken by students interested in careers in conservation biology, natural history education/
interpretation, natural resource policy/law, as park rangers, or as a
foundation for post baccalaureate studies in ecology related fields.
Wildlife Emphasis (488-176)
The Wildlife emphasis prepares students for careers as wildlife biologists, conservation officers, natural resource managers, park rangers,
natural resource policy/administration officers, and for legal careers
and post-baccalaureate studies in wildlife related fields.
Fisheries Emphasis (488-177)
The Fisheries emphasis prepares students for careers as fisheries biologists, conservation officers, natural resource managers, park rangers,
natural resource policy/administration officers and for legal careers
and post-baccalaureate studies in fisheries related fields.
Plant Biology Emphasis (488-178)
The Plant Biology emphasis prepares students for careers as botanists.
The degree also provides a strong foundation for post-baccalaureate
studies in plant ecology, physiology, systematic, pathology, or other
related fields.

Introduction
The mission of the Business Management Department is to create a
learning environment for students to acquire the knowledge, skills,
and experiences necessary to make an immediate contribution in the
workplace and to rapidly grow into leadership positions in their organizations. We will do this by partnering with industry and nonprofit
organizations to provide mentoring, seminars, consulting projects,
practiced application and internships to allow the students to apply
what they have learned via case study and classroom discussion. Graduating students will emerge with an innovative and entrepreneurial
spirit, technological and spreadsheet analysis, and key communication
and problem-solving skills.
General advisement questions should be directed to the College of
Business and Communication Academic Discovery Center,
Smith 227, (208) 496-9840.
Career Opportunities
Students graduating from this major will be prepared for entry-level
management positions in finance, marketing, supply chain management/operations and management. They will also receive sufficient
knowledge to pursue entrepreneurial opportunities in the industry
of their choice after gaining relevant experience. The entrepreneurial
management emphasis is designed to help students develop critical
skills in management, innovation, agility, adaptability, critical thinking, creativity, risk taking, and new idea generation by examining and
testing various business models and business plans. Within the finance
area, students will be particularly suited for opportunities in financial
services, banking, and corporate finance. Within the marketing area,
students will be well prepared for careers in sales, marketing research,
marketing services, or business-to-business/business-to-consumer
marketing. Within the supply chain area, students will be prepared
for careers in procurement, production and operations management,
forecasting and production planning, and logistics management.
Central Aims - Students who successfully complete the degree will
demonstrate the following skills:

COMM 100, Introduction to Communication Major and Professions, should be completed in a student’s first semester as a Communication major. Additionally, it is recommended that a student
complete COMM 102 (Public Speaking) and COMM 111 (Writing
for Communication Careers) in the first semester. These three courses
should be enrolled in or completed before students can proceed to
other Communication courses.
Delaina Scholes, Department Secretary (208) 496-3691

Introduction
In a world where information is more readily available from more
sources and more rapidly disseminated than ever before, the ability
to communicate correctly, clearly, precisely and persuasively has
never been more important. Students trained in communication are
prepared to work in exciting, wide-ranging, fast-changing, cuttingedge careers. With a recently revamped program, our department’s
aim is to better prepare students to become skilled, knowledgeable,
versatile, progressive, ethical practitioners through courses and programs addressing today’s professional requirements while anticipating
tomorrow’s developments.
We believe all future communication professionals should develop a
solid, broad foundation of knowledge and skills. Students should be
able to write and speak confidently to a wide range of audiences; to
research and analyze scenarios and develop sound ideas and solutions;
to get along and work with diverse people in many kinds of situations; to serve in groups constructively or lead them productively;
and to produce targeted and effective written, spoken and visual messages in media, group and interpersonal settings.
Additionally, we believe students best learn by doing. From a student’s first semester as a Communication major at BYU-Idaho, we
encourage him or her to get involved with our hands-on practicums.
These professionally oriented, student-managed organizations are
designed to reinforce, enhance and expand upon what is learned in
class. Our innovative I~Comm student media organization puts students to work for the Scroll campus newspaper, Scroll Digital broadcast organization, Soapbox Creative Agency, video production unit,
copy editing team, web development crew, or visual design agency.
Students who take full advantage of the training and opportunities
in I~Comm are well on their way toward being ready to meet the
demands of tomorrow’s ever-changing communication careers. The
same professors they learn within the classroom roll up their sleeves in
I~Comm and other practicums, thus completing an integrated learning experience.

Degrees
The Theatre and Dance Department offers a Bachelor of Arts
degree (B.A.) in Dance with two separate and unique areas of
emphasis. The Performance Emphasis (655-168) prepares students
for career opportunities, or continued studies, as a performer and/
or choreographer in contemporary dance. The Pedagogy Emphasis
(655-169) prepares students for career opportunities, or continued
studies, in teaching, directing, and research in a chosen style or area
of focus. Both areas of emphasis require an application, proficiency
audition, and interview.
(A Division of the Theatre and Dance Department)
In addition to these two options, the Dance Area also offers an
Interdisciplinary Arts Concentration (D 131), a Minor (183), and
a Cluster (5100) in dance studies, none of which have an audition
requirement. These courses of study will provide the opportunity for
students to gain the skills and understanding necessary to assist them
in their dance-related career goals.
BA in Dance Degree Outcomes
It is expected that a graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Dance
will be able to:
•Identify and work conceptually with the physical, emotional,
and theoretical elements of composition, style, pedagogy, and
performance, based on their chosen area of emphasis.
•Demonstrate a fundamental knowledge of the body, based on
kinesiologically applied and/or somatic-centered understanding
of movement principles, as well as culturally and historically
constructed contexts within an LDS perspective.
•Exhibit performance and/or instructional proficiency in chosen area
of emphasis coupled with an awareness and appreciation of all
genres of dance.
•Articulate and defend theoretical/artistic frameworks and analytical
evaluations based on individual experience and synthesis within a
diverse global context.
•Access opportunities to continue academic/performance studies
at the graduate level and/or employment in instruction,
choreography, and performance of dance in their chosen area of
emphasis.

Introduction
Successful graduates in dance are suited for a range of career options
based on the chosen area of emphasis. Public and private schools,
dance schools and studios, theatrical settings, arts organizations, and
fitness centers are some of the many areas within which employment
might be located. Besides work with movement technique,
composition, improvisation, body conditioning, health and fitness,
graduates may also be suited to work in areas of arts management/
administration, public relations, personal consulting, dance criticism,
and community and outreach work. With additional education and
licensure, a successful graduate could proceed into higher education
teaching, dance history, kinesiology, specialized dance and integrated
movement therapy.
It is the mission of the Theatre and Dance Department at Brigham
Young University-Idaho to:
•Promote dance that is wholesome, uplifting, of high artistic and
technical merit, and consistent with the divinely directed standards of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the
University.
•Provide opportunities for students to develop spiritually, artistically,
intellectually and physically. This is accomplished through an
emphasis on gospel principles, personal integrity, dedication, hard
work, individual enrichment, and sensitivity to multiple perspectives.
•Furnish students with a versatile, yet quality movement-based and
theoretical experience, establishing a foundation for a career in a
dance-related field.
•Assist students in the discovery, development, and articulation of
their own artistic and philosophical perspectives.
•Offer opportunities for students to use their skills and gifts to serve
the Lord, the community, and their families.
•Challenge students to become individual thinkers, seek opportunities to serve, and pursue artistic endeavors that reflect a richly
complex and diverse global orientation.

BA in Dance Admittance
Introductory and Technique Level Courses
The Department of Theatre and Dance has a first-year open
enrollment policy for all students seeking a BA in Dance. Students
may initially declare a Dance Major at the time of application and
enrollment to the University. However, all declared Dance Majors,
whether new, continuing, or transfer students are considered as
“Prospective Dance Majors” until they have been formally accepted
by the Department into the degree program. Formal acceptance will
be made after the successful completion of a proficiency audition.
Students are encouraged to audition during their first year of study.
Studio-based movement classes at the 100-level are considered introductory courses oriented toward students with little or no experience
in that style or genre. Classes offered at the 200-level are considered
technique-level 1 courses, oriented toward dancers with experience
and focused on the proper technical and artistic execution of each
given style. 300 and 400-level courses are each considered subsequent levels to be followed in succession. Nevertheless, successful
completion of one technique level does not ensure advancement to
the proceeding level. Consultation with advisors and instructors,
coupled with the jury process explained above, will guide each student to the appropriate level course.
The proficiency audition process is comprised of a written statement
and application, a movement performance and/or class, and an
interview with faculty members. Written applications can be
submitted to the Dance Office (MC 214) up to one week prior to the
audition, the dates of which are posted on the department website.
Students will be notified of their status within three weeks of the
audition.
Notwithstanding, enrollment in each level requires the successful
completion of the previous level. However, students who enter the
program with an appropriate level of skill and experience may petition
the instructor of the desired level to waive the prerequisite for the
course and thus enroll. Generally speaking the 100-level courses are
not required as part of the degree requirements.
Students who have declared a Dance Major but have not been
accepted via the audition process are responsible for declaring an
alternate major and applying completed dance credits toward a
Concentration, Minor, or Cluster. There is no required audition
or application requirements for students pursuing a Concentration,
Minor, or Cluster in Dance.
Academic Advising
Due to the intricacies of the track system coupled with the sequencing of dance course offerings, it is critical that degree seeking students
meet early and often with the Academic Discovery Center (located in
MC 376) and their assigned faculty advisor. Proper communication
and planning can assist the student in executing the degree program
with efficiency and suitability.
BA in Dance Continuance
Each year, students enrolled as dance majors will participate in a
jury process comprised of a performance for and/or interview with
faculty members in conjunction with the student’s area of emphasis.
An important part of this evaluation will include the review of a
portfolio of the student’s activity and engagement in the Department
and major classes. This process is meant to determine the student’s
progress and advancement within the degree program.
Performing Groups and Auditions
The Department of Theatre and Dance has two performing
companies that provide opportunities for majors and non-majors
alike to participate in performances both on campus and abroad.
The Collegiate Dancers is a faculty mentored dance company where
students in the areas of Ballroom, Contemporary, and World Dance
have the opportunity to create and perform in Extravadance and
other local performance/workshop settings. Dance Alliance is a
faculty directed dance company where students have the opportunity
to perform in Extravadance and represent the University and Church
on an extended tour during the seven-week break in late summer.
Students must successfully pass all juries as required in order to
advance. In addition to technical proficiency and achievement,
advancement is also contingent upon department involvement,
citizenship, and demonstrated personal responsibility. Situations
resulting in a failure to complete or pass the jury process will be
referred to mediation with faculty members to resolve related issues
or seek an alternative degree program.
Auditions for Dance Alliance are in January. Dance Alliance is a
two-semester team operating on the Winter and Spring semesters.
Auditions for Collegiate Dancers, which operates in Fall and Winter
semesters, occur during the first two weeks of each these semesters.
Audition dates are posted on the Department website.
Incoming Student Course Sequence
Due to the length of time required to complete the BA in Dance and
the necessary theoretical and physical skill acquisition, it is imperative
that students begin immediately with their training. It is suggested
that students in their first semester enroll in “Introduction to Dance
Major and Professions” (DA 103) and two technique level courses
(explained below). Students pursuing the Performance Emphasis are
strongly encouraged to enroll in Modern Dance Technique 1 (DA
240) and Ballet Technique I (DA 290), and those in the Pedagogy
Emphasis in a technique course in their chosen area.

management, farm and ranch management, real estate appraisal,

the average starting salary for majors in Agricultural Economics and
Business was $43,450.
Economics
Why Study Economics or Financial Economics?
What caused the housing bubble? Why are grocery prices going up?
What is causing the recent changes in the stock market? Every day
our lives are impacted by economic forces, both near and afar, making
economics personal and interesting. The study of economics helps
students understand these forces and provides the tools to assess their
impacts. It provides a framework for analyzing how individuals or
families, businesses, and governments make decisions as they face
trade-offs.
Students majoring in economics or financial economics develop
strong analytical and quantitative reasoning skills that enable them to
not only solve problems but also identify the appropriate questions to
ask when evaluating possible alternatives. Such skills are valuable in
all walks of life and as a result, graduates find employment opportunities in a wide range of areas, often with titles other than “economist.”
Graduates in economics are most sought after in fields like banking
and finance, business, law, public policy (e.g., health care, environment), and international trade and development. According to the
Spring 2011 Salary Survey by the National Association of Colleges
and Employers, the average starting salaries for graduates in Economics and Finance were $54,634 and $53,048, respectively.

Degrees
Students may pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in Agribusiness,
Agricultural Economics, Economics, or Financial Economics. Courses are designed to combine the theoretical economic and agribusiness
principles with practical applications to prepare students to enter the
job market or for further graduate studies.
Denise Rydalch, Department Secretary (208) 496-3800
http://www.byui.edu/Economics/
The Department of Economics prepares students for many exciting
and challenging employment opportunities, and offers a wide variety
of course work in economics, financial economics, agribusiness, and
agricultural economics. The close relationship between teachers and
students creates a learning atmosphere that encourages the development of the finest students.
Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness (643)
The major in Agribusiness is comprised of courses in economics,
finance, marketing, operational analysis, agricultural accounting, and
business analytics. Students choose one of two emphases: Agribusiness Management or Global Food and Agribusiness Management.
The first of these develops expertise in business management, accounting, and marketing while the latter develops more expertise in
international trade and the global business environment. Students
also complete a cluster in agricultural sciences (or food and nutrition).
Students receive excellent training from applied and theoretical
exercises that involve hands-on computer modeling, applications in
financial analysis and international trade, and economics and business
cases. All Agribusiness, Agricultural Economics, Economics, and
Financial Economics majors obtain real-world experience through
internships. A wide variety of locations and working environments
are available throughout the United States and occasionally abroad.
Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics (724)
The major in agricultural economics combines an enriched economics core along with the strength of agribusiness courses to develop
students’ quantitative and analytical ability. These skills are developed using applications from the agriculture sector. The major also
provides the opportunity for increased understanding of agricultural
sciences. Students take courses in operational analysis, price analysis
and agriculture and policy. They also complete a cluster in agricultural sciences (or food and nutrition).
Why Study Agribusiness or Agricultural Economics?
Did you know that the U.S. Agribusiness sector accounts for approximately 17 percent of the U.S. GDP and employs approximately
30 million workers industry-wide? The agriculture and agri-food
industry feeds the world and develops innovative products that meet
the needs of consumers throughout the economy. If you have a
passion for or desire to work as a business leader in agriculture, food
processing, agricultural lending, corporate management, environmental sustainability or other related fields, the BYU-Idaho agribusiness
degree is a great choice. It’s a field where economics, business, and
agriculture merge.
Bachelor of Science in Economics (720)
In addition to the core credits, students majoring in economics have
the flexibility to choose from a broad range of economic elective
courses based on their career plans. These elective courses provide
students with additional depth in their desired areas of emphasis.
The agriculturally-related industries are vibrant with numerous opportunities domestically and internationally for growth and career
advancement. Potential careers include commodity traders, wholesale
buyers, corporate managers, specialists with major agricultural

Bachelor of Science in Financial Economics (715)
MBA / Masters in Finance
The financial economics major combines economics with the tools of
finance to prepare students for careers in financial institutions (e.g.,
commercial banks, Federal Reserve), capital markets, and the treasury/investment functions of a business.
“Economics is viewed by more students as a ticket to the nation’s top
business and law schools. ‘The best people are more frequently taking
economics as their major …,’ said Richard A. Silverman, executive
director of admissions at the Yale School of Management. ‘It shows
they have the intellectual fire in the belly to perform well in an MBA
program.’” (Tristan Mabry, Wall Street Journal, November 30,
1998). All of our majors include a good foundation in economics.
Graduate Studies
Although these degrees provide students with the skills for direct
employment success, they also prepare students for further graduate
studies which are required for certain careers in business, research,
teaching, and consulting. In addition to a major in economics or
agribusiness, students preparing for graduate studies can benefit from
taking additional courses in statistics, mathematics, accounting, and
computer information systems.
Law School
Do economists make better lawyers? A study by Craft and Baker,
published in the Journal of Economic Education (Summer 2003,
263-268), found that lawyers with undergraduate degrees in
economics earned $10,000 more per year than lawyers with other
undergraduate degrees. The analytical skills gained in economics also
help students perform well on the LSAT, with economics consistently
being one of the top majors on the exam.

Introduction
Geography’s ancient intellectual heritage persists today as we continue to examine the complexities and interrelationships of the world’s
physical and cultural systems. Geography functions as a synthesizing discipline, providing a “bridge” between the physical and social
sciences. We strive to perpetuate this long-standing objective by providing classes which investigate both the physical and cultural world.
Geography students are taught to think in spatial terms, considering
where physical and cultural phenomena are located, why they occupy
this space, and the implications of these patterns.

Geology
Brigham Young University–Idaho 2014-2015
Department of
Career opportunities for geologists include mineral or energy
exploration and development, geological engineering, geophysics,
environmental geology, water resources, computer applications to geology (including GIS), paleontology, etc. Employers include energy
companies, consulting firms, local and federal government agencies,
and academic institutions. The broad, multidisciplinary nature of a
major in geology is great preparation for careers in other areas, like
business or law.
Geology
Most geoscience concepts are best understood by leaving the classroom and spending time studying the rocks and geologic features
where they exist. Field trips off-campus provide students field experiences, enabling them to experience geologic features first hand. The
unique location of BYU-Idaho offers an exceptional opportunity
to study geology. Our students study at some of the most famous
geologic localities in the world. Local and regional field trips to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Nation Parks, Snake River Plain volcanic
and hydrologic features, Hebgen Lake and Borah Peak earthquake
localities, and the Grand Canyon in Arizona, provide for effective
learning, enhanced student understanding of geologic processes, and
a superior preparation for future careers.

Introduction
Geology offers students career opportunities both as professional
geologists and as teachers in secondary education (Earth Science).
Both career paths are currently in high demand. Graduates in Earth
Science education are employable with their bachelor’s degree while
the professional geologist’s track generally requires a graduate degree. The current financial rewards for geologists are significant and
generally require living close to a major city. The education major
provides greater flexibility in choosing where to live. In addition to
our major programs, we are also home for minors in Geology, and
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and education minors in
Earth Science and Natural Science. The education Natural Science
minor is especially attractive for individuals planning to teach in
smaller school districts.

Therapeutic Recreation Emphasis (611-106)
The Paramedic Program portion of the degree is designed to be
taken in the senior year and begins each Fall semester. Applications
for each cohort are due on June 1st of the prior Spring semester.
Students accepted into the program start in the fall and continue with
three consecutive semesters in that year, followed by a short summer
break, culminating in an unpaid, semester-long, internship,(at a location determined by the paramedic program), the following fall.
Recreation Therapy is a process which uses recreation as a means
to improve or maintain physical, cognitive, social, emotional and
spiritual functioning in order to facilitate full participation in life. Students interested in Therapeutic Recreation should see their advisor
to set up their program. This program is one of the fastest growing
health-related professions in the United States. Certified Therapeutic
Recreation Specialists (STRS) serve individuals with disabilities. They
may also serve senior citizens and youth who are at risk in both the
institutional and community settings. Other settings could include
hospitals, nursing homes, correctional facilities, wilderness programs,
community centers, and senior centers.
Student selection for the paramedic portion of the program is based
upon successful completion of an EMT course and GPA in the science and mathematics prerequisites; i.e. Biology 264, 265; Chemistry
101 or higher; and Math 108 or higher. Furthermore, owing to the
rigorous continuing education requirements of the profession and
the perishability of the skills, admission preference to the paramedic
portion of the program is given to students with senior, and/or
advanced-junior class standing. Students who do not have EMT
certification should ideally take Paramedicine 181 for seven credits
no sooner than the junior year or within the year prior to application
to the program. Prior students are placed and presently working
in EMS and Fire services in many of the continental United States
and Hawaii. Other prior students have successfully matriculated in
Physician’s Assistant and Medical schools and are currently working
in those professions.
The Recreational Therapy program is an emphasis you can choose
within the Recreation Management major. The program allows
students the opportunity to become certified by the National Council
for Therapeutic Recreation Certification (NCTRC).
Community Emphasis (611-150)
This emphasis is designed for individuals seeking careers within municipal recreation, community recreation, sports and fitness centers
and health clubs to gain specialized skills and certifications that will
qualify them for employment within the industry. Course work includes classes focused on facility management, special event planning,
business, and specific certifications/skills appropriate to community
settings including aquatics, inclusion, outdoor and exercise science.
Please see our paramedic home page on the BYU-I web site. Look
under future student link for more information.
Applied Associates Degree in Paramedicine (356)
Medical Assisting Program (361)
The Paramedicine degree’s intent is to prepare graduates for National
Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Paramedic certification
and licensure in most States. Course work follows the U.S. Department of Transportation model. Para 181, Bio 264, Bio 265, FDMAT
108 or higher, and Chem 101 are the prerequisites to admission to
the Paramedic program Concurrent enrollment in the prerequisites
at the time of application is allowed. Application deadline is June
1st. Students admitted will attend three consecutive semesters: Fall,
Winter and Spring, and will then do their internship.
Please see our paramedic home page on the BYU-I web site. Look
under future student link for more information.
The Associate Degree of Applied Science in Medical Assisting
prepares students to be employed in an ambulatory medical facility,
i.e. a doctor’s office, outpatient clinic, or same-day surgical center.
A Medical Assistant is cross-trained and multi-skilled to perform
both administrative (front office) and clinical (back office and lab)
procedures to support the physician/employer in providing excellent
patient care. This program prepares students to take the National
Certified Medical Assistant exam offered by the American Association
of Medical Assistants (AAMA).
To enter the program the student should first complete BIO 264
with a C or higher and HS 280 with a B- or higher. The student
should apply to the program by attending one of three orientation
meetings. The entry courses are offered during all three semesters so
students on every track can apply. At the end of the program (with
all MA courses completed) the student will complete a 200 hour,
unpaid externship at an ambulatory medical facility. The purpose is to
practice and perfect the skills learned in class. The student is strongly
encouraged to do externship off-track, and it must be approved by
the school’s Internship Office and the program director.
BYU-Idaho/Salus University Physician Assistant Program 3-2
Agreement
The physician assistant program at Salus University in Philadelphia,
PA has agreed to accept four BYU-Idaho students into the Salus PA
program each year. As part of this program, accepted BYU-Idaho students will enter the Salus University PA program at the end of their
junior year. Upon completion of the first year of the Salus University
PA program, BYU-Idaho students will be awarded a BYU-Idaho baccalaureate degree. Students will then finish the last year of PA school
and be awarded a Masters of Medical Science from the Salus University PA program and will be qualified to take the Physician Assistant
National Certification Exam.
Physical Therapist Assistant Program (366)
If candidacy status is granted, we plan to start the PTA program Fall
2014. For current accreditation status please visit the PTA program
website. The Associate Degree of Applied Science in Physical Therapy
prepares students to be employed as a Physical Therapist Assistant.
The program includes two academic and two clinical education semesters after prerequisites are met. For prerequisite courses and program course schedule please visit the program website. Application
deadline for the program will be one week after Spring graduation for
the upcoming academic year.
BYU-Idaho/University of Idaho Masters of Athletic Training 3-2
Agreement
Through an ongoing collaborative discussion, the University of
Idaho has agreed to allow qualified BYU-Idaho students (up to ten
per year) application for early acceptance into their MSAT program.
Students accepted into the program will complete a minimum of 90
credits at BYUI (which will include all major classes in exercise science or health science) and begin the two year MSAT program in the
summer semester following their junior year. Credits from their first
year at the University of Idaho will transfer back to fulfill remaining
requirements towards their BS degree at BYUI. Students will then
complete the second year of the University of Idaho program,
graduating with their Master’s in Athletic Training the following year.
Bachelor of Science in Paramedicine (477)
The Bachelor of Emergency Services degree is for those wanting to
become paramedics. It is tailored to teach invaluable pre-hospital
medical concepts, and hands-on skills and assessments. The students
also participate in extensive hospital clinicals and ambulance ridealongs with local EMS agencies.
