Tuition for semester and term classes is due seven calendar days before the start of class. If tuition is not paid when it is due, a hold will be placed on your registration until it is paid. If your tuition is not paid by the add/drop deadline, all classes will be dropped. Log into My Financial Center to pay tuition charges. Tuition for Independent Study classes must be paid when you enroll in the class.
Health Plan Requirement
BYU FlexGE students enrolled at least 3/4 time (9 credit hours per semester or 4.5 credit hours per term) are required to have health insurance. You will be automatically enrolled and charged for the BYU Student Health Plan unless you provide proof of health insurance by the add/drop deadline. You can provide proof of health insurance and waive the BYU Student Health Plan in My Financial Center.
As a FlexGE student, you are eligible to work in staff and student jobs at BYU. If you work a student job during fall and winter semesters you must take at least 6 BYU credits per semester. If working during spring and summer terms you must take a combined total of 3 BYU credits for the terms.
The BYU FlexGE Scholarship is a need-based award based on a percentage of the number of credits with the typical award level at about 1/3 of the cost of tuition. All FlexGE students are encouraged to apply.
BYU Short-Term Loan
The BYU short-term loan is designed to help students pay tuition by the final tuition deadline if financial aid or other payment arrangements have not been finalized. Payment is due mid-semester and students only pay a $20 processing fee and no interest if paid on time.
Federal Financial Aid
BYU FlexGE students are not eligible for federal financial aid through BYU. However, students who opt into an associate degree program with Ensign College can apply for federal financial aid at Ensign College for qualifying FlexGE and Ensign College classes. Students must work with the Ensign College financial aid and advisement offices to apply for aid and determine which FlexGE classes are eligible.
It's not uncommon for students to experience food insecurity at one point or another while in college. If you are going hungry or you are unsure how you will feed yourself, the BYU Dean of Students office can help.
