Beginning of Semester

We've outlined some of the most common beginning of semester tasks for BYU students.  

New Student Orientation

Come get to know campus! NSO activities range from spiritual and academic, to the informal and out-and-out fun that is always a fantastic part of campus life. Many of these events are organized around Y Groups, small groups led by upperclassmen where you can ask questions and get to know other new students. NSO is the weekend before school starts.

Pay Your Tuition

Tuition is due 7 days before classes start. If you miss this deadline, a hold will be placed on your account, and you won’t be able to register for more classes until tuition is paid. The absolute final deadline to pay tuition is the add/drop deadline, which is 6 school days after classes begin.

Add/Drop Deadline

The last day to add or drop a class from your schedule is 6 days after classes begin.See the Academic Calendar for the specific add/drop deadline this semester. If you drop a class after this deadline, it will be marked on your transcript with a “W”, signifying that the student withdrew from the course and did not receive a grade.

Guest Access

Guest Access allows you to give another person access to your BYU account. There are cases where you may want to give a parent or other third-party access to information or to complete a transaction for you. Don't ever give out your Net ID or password. Instead you can give someone access to selected information on your student account.

Grant Guest Access

Guest Access allows you to give another person access to your BYU account. There are cases where it is necessary for a parent or other third-party to access information or complete transactions on your behalf. You can grant access to selected accounts including your Academic, Financial, and Personal accounts via approved modes of access, including online or "Web access" and/or "Telephone/In-person access".
