|Tuition and Fees|
Cashiers' Office (D-155 ASB,  378-7808)
Students are expected to pay tuition and class fees by the first day of classes each semester or term. See the current class schedule for deadline dates. It is expected that students who fail to pay tuition by this day will discontinue their enrollment. Students who fail to pay tuition by the scheduled final day to register will jeopardize their eligibility to enroll for subsequent semesters or terms.

*A significant portion of the cost of operating the university is paid from the tithes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Therefore, students and families of students who are tithe-paying members of the Church have already made a contribution to the operation of the university. Because others will not have made this contribution, they are charged a higher tuition, a practice similar in principle to that of state universities charging higher tuition to nonresidents.
**Non-degree-seeking students pay graduate tuition.
A full-time student dropping to three-quarter time or part-time, or a three-quarter time student dropping to part-time, or a part-time student who decreases credit hours may be eligible to receive a tuition refund. A refund request must be initiated by the student through the Tuition Office (D-151 ASB). A full refund of the difference between full-time, three-quarter time, and part-time assessment will be allowed until the scheduled last day for adding classes. Refunds for courses dropped after that date will be subject to the refund rate schedule listed under Tuition Charge/Refund—Discontinuance.
Late tuition payment fees will be assessed full-time, three-quarter time, and part-time students for failure to pay tuition by scheduled deadlines. (See current class schedule for deadline dates.)
Students whose tuition check is dishonored by the bank will be charged the late fee in effect at the time the check is redeemed.
When a student officially discontinues from the university, a partial refund of tuition and fees paid may be appropriate. Any refund due will be paid by check, through the mail, approximately 10 days from the date on which the student requests discontinuance. Any unpaid university charges will be deducted from the refund amount.
Note: Late fees are nonrefundable.
The amount of the refund a student will receive is based on the date a student reports such discontinuance to the Discontinuance Office (B-150 ASB). The following rates apply to both tuition and class fee refunds:
See current class schedule for specific dates.
|Tuition Charged||Tuition Refunded|
|Before first day of classes||None||100%|
|First week of classes||10%||90%|
|Second week of classes||15%||85%|

|Eighth week of classes||45%||55%|
|Ninth week of classes||50%||50%|
|Tenth week of classes||55%||45%|
A petition for exception to the refund schedule will be considered for students forced to discontinue because of circumstances that are beyond their control, such as death in the immediate family, life-threatening situations, medical incapacitation, a university error, or military leave. Students should not submit petitions based on ignorance of university policies and procedures. These will be denied. Petition forms are in D-149 ASB.
Class fee refunds are based on the same schedule as listed for tuition refunds. Those with an asterisk (*) are exceptions to this schedule and must be applied for at the respective academic department.

BYU requires all three-quarter- and full-time students (9 credit hours or more for a semester; 4.5 credit hours for a term) to carry adequate medical insurance. This applies the entire time a student has continuing status, including students taking a semester or term off. All participants in groups on tour, Study Abroad, or internships are required to carry adequate medical insturance.
Students' past-due debts are referred to Financial Services for collection, and a reasonable collection fee is added to the student's account. If BYU is unable to collect the debt within a reasonable time, the debt will be referred to an outside collection agency and/or attorney for collection. All collection costs, including BYU's collection fee and any collection agency fees and/or attorney fees and court costs will be added to the student's debt and must be paid in full before the university will release the financial hold on the student's transcript, allow the student to register, or consider the student for readmission. Also, eligibility for graduation, participation in graduation ceremonies, and/or release of the diploma may be delayed or denied.
BYU offers a unique, high-quality university education in an
atmosphere that nurtures spiritual growth and a strong testimony
of the divinity of Jesus Christ, and educational expenses have
been deliberately kept at a minimum. This is possible because of
financial support from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day
Saints, which covers a significant portion of the university's total
expenses. A single undergraduate student at BYU may expect the
following approximate basic costs:
*Tuition and fees
Board and room
Books and supplies
*Tuition for non-LDS undergraduate students is $2,300 for each of the fall and winter semesters and $1,150 for each of the spring and summer terms.
