Paying Tuition

Payment for tuition is always due the first day of the semester. We then give up until one week after the first day of school to make changes in your classes. After the first week of classes, any balance owing for Tuition/Fees or the Student Health Plan will be assessed a 5% late fee. Also, if your student drops classes after the first 7 days, they will not receive a refund on their tuition. The only way to get a refund is to completely withdraw from the semester at which time your student will only be given a prorated refund.

How does my student pay tuition?

For your student, paying their account at BYU-Idaho is easy! The Accounting Services Office accepts cash, checks, and money orders in the Cashier's Office, and electronic checks (E-Checks), as well as VISA, Mastercard, and Discover credit cards online.
