Incoming Freshmen

Personal Information

Before coming to BYU, you need to confirm your personal information is correct and up-to-date, including your contact info. You'll need to submit a photo to BYU's ID Center before June 10th for your BYU ID card. Additionally, your health insurance information needs to be submitted before the academic semester begins. If you have private insurance but do not enter or update it by the deadline, you will automatically be enrolled and charged for the BYU Student Health Plan.

My Financial Center is the place for all of your BYU-related finances. Here you will be able to pay for charges on your account as well as add funds to your BYU ID card called CougarCash. Everyone at BYU–students, faculty, and staff–is required to set up Direct Deposit. This is the account into which BYU will deposit scholarships, paychecks, and refunds. If you have charges that become “Past Due”, there will be a hold placed on your account and you will not be able to register for classes for the following semester/term.

BYU uses two main platforms for course management: LearningSuite and Canvas. You will have classes that use one or both of these. The login information for both of these sites is your netid and password. All classes will post a booklist under the course requirements. Once classes begin, incoming freshmen, transfer students, and any student-athlete on academic warning or probation are required to attend a minimum of 8 hours of study hall per week. This can only be completed in the Built4Life Student Athlete Center. Academic advisors, learning specialists, or coaches may adjust the amount of hours on an individual basis.
