International students are eligible to apply as visiting students during spring and/or summer terms under the following conditions: (1) they are already attending another US school, and (2) the school agrees to maintain their I-20 while they attend BYU during their vacation period. Fall and winter semesters are not an option for the BYU Visiting Student Program.
While on campus, students in the program will enroll in college-level courses and also enjoy a wide range of BYU cultural and social experiences.
To be competitive for admission consideration as a visiting student, you will need:
High school GPA of 2.5 or higher
Composite ACT score of 18 or SAT of 860 (total of critical reading and math scores only)
College/university GPA of 2.5 or higher
TOEFL score of 80 or higher
Admission and enrollment in the BYU Visiting Student Program does not in any way imply continued enrollment at BYU beyond summer term. Students wanting to pursue a degree at BYU must submit an application for undergraduate admission and meet the admission criteria in effect at the time of application.
