You are encouraged to complete your university experience in a timely manner. This enables BYU-Idaho to serve more students.
All BYU-Idaho students benefit from the sacred tithing dollars allocated to this university. These funds offset the cost of higher education, making it more accessible to all types of students. We want to extend this privilege to as many youth of the church as possible, so it is imperative that each student engage in proper planning to make the most of their time at BYU-Idaho.
Degree Progress - This requirement holds all students accountable for making progress towards their declared major each semester. Students with low degree progress percentages will be contacted by the Academic Discovery Center. Advisors will help you with your goals, class planning, and share resources with you to guide you to make timely progress through your chosen academic program. Failure to make proper degree progress could result in academic probation and suspension from school.
Change-of-Major Credit Limit - Students desiring to change their major after earning 60.0 credits must petition in order to do so. This means that certain majors, if not started in your freshmen or sophomore year, may not be available to you as a junior or senior.
