Just Admitted Visiting Student Checklist
Register For Classes
Use MyMAP, our registration system, to help you plan, organize, and register for classes. You will be given a randomly assigned date that you can begin registering; which is called a priority registration date. Go to the Register tab to see your date. For more see our Registering for Classes Checklist.
Pay for School
Tuition is due seven calendar days before the first day of class. Pay on time or you will get a hold placed on your account and your classes may be dropped.
Non-degree seeking students are not eligible to receive federal aid or scholarships; so, visiting students cannot receive financial aid or scholarships.
Enroll In or Waive Student Health Plan
Students enrolled 3/4 time or more (9 semester credits/4.5 term credits) are required to have health insurance coverage year-round. You are automatically enrolled in BYU's Student Health Plan one week before classes start if private insurance has not been reported. You will have access to waive the plan about 1 month before classes start. This is yearly process and the deadline to waive the BYU Student Health Plan is the semester add/drop deadline.
Visiting students are required to live either in on-campus housing or in BYU contracted off-campus housing. Some on-campus housing may require you to have a meal plan. Meal plans also make it easier for you to save time and money. To accommodate returning missionaries, there are communities for students who are 19 or older. There are also many contracted apartments right around campus.
Tuberculosis (TB) Test
If you've lived outside of the U.S. or Canada for six months or more within the last five years, you are required to have a tuberculosis skin test. If you don't comply by the first day of classes a TB hold will be placed on your record. If you're an international student, your student visa status may be terminated. If you have any questions, please call 801-422-5134 or 801-422-7711.
The University Advisement Center is the perfect place to help you decide on courses during your time at BYU as a visiting student. If you want to meet with an advisor, contact the University Advisement Center for information about services they offer.
