FAQs

How do I sign-up?

You can sign-up and pick your Ensign College associate program on the FlexGE application

What Ensign College degree programs are available?

Are all BYU FlexGE classes eligible for federal financial aid?

Only those FlexGE classes that are equivalent to classes required by your Ensign College associate degree program are eligible for aid.

Can I still take BYU FlexGE classes that are not eligible for federal financial aid?

Yes! However, you will not receive aid for these classes.

How do I know which BYU FlexGE classes are eligible for federal financial aid?

Use the transfer guide for your associate degree to find which classes are eligible.

Can I get financial aid for classes I am taking now or those I have already completed?

Financial aid is only available for classes taken in Winter Semester 2023 or thereafter.

Should I complete my Ensign College associate degree if I plan on transferring to BYU or another university?

You should not sign up for an Ensign College program unless you intend to complete it. However, we understand that sometimes plans change.  Completing an associate degree before transferring usually means all or nearly all general education requirements at your new school will be waived.  Transferring with an applied associate will not waive GE requirements, but the individual courses may satisfy some major requirements at your new school.
