Policies & FAQ

Policy Changes:

(Updated 10/16/2017:)

The Senior Audit program has been discontinued and is no longer offered. Please contact our office if you have additional questions.


(Updated 4/19/2017:)

Please note that effective immediately students enrolled as non-degree seeking students are no longer limited to 8.5 credit hours of Evening Classes credit in a semester (4 in a term). Students may continue to register as part-time*, but those who wish may register as 3/4 time** or may register as full-time*** in Evening Classes credit if they choose.

For students who plan to enroll in a 3/4 or full-time load, we highly recommend students consider taking some of their classes at the BYU Salt Lake Center in order to better balance the schedule throughout the week. Evening Students may enroll in classes at the Salt Lake Center regardless of the time when the class is offered. 

*Part-time = 0.5 - 8.5 credits

**3/4 Time = 9.0 - 11.5 credits

***Full-time = 12.0 - 18.0 credits



Admission to BYU

Don't Evening Classes students automatically become admitted BYU students after taking enough credits?


Students only become admitted BYU students by completing an application for BYU Admissions and then being admitted.

There are many circulating myths and misconceptions about BYU's admission process. In order to have the most accurate information prior to applying you can contact BYU Admissions directly to have your questions answered. BYU Admissions also addresses many of these myths on their YouTube channel.
