Withdrawing Completely from School

Officially Withdrawing from BYU-Idaho

Important Information to Know

If you are considering withdrawing from BYU-Idaho, please be aware of the following:

  • Charges: All charges and past due debt must be paid by the student, regardless of enrollment status. Please ensure charges are all up to date to avoid financial penalties. For instructions, see Finances.
  • Financial Aid: If you withdraw after receiving financial aid, you may be required to pay back a portion or all of your financial aid. Please check with the Financial Aid Office before dropping your courses. Once you have dropped the course(s), you can check your Financial Aid Portal and Student Account Summary for any changes in Financial Aid. For instructions on how to check your portal, see Finances.

  • Textbooks: Any and all books rented from the University Store must be returned. See the University Store Webpage for more information or attached PDF "University Store Academic Withdrawal Guidelines"

Deferment Option

A deferment may be available as an alternative to withdrawing from the university. This option allows you to hold your enrollment at BYU-Idaho eliminating the need to re-apply when you return to the university.
