Answer: To determine the exact amount you are eligible for based on your credits, it is best to contact the Financial Aid Office. You can chat directly with a Financial Aid Advisor using the Web Chat feature in the bottom left-hand corner of the www.byui.edu website.
Generally, you need to take at least 12 credits to receive the full amount of any type of award; however, you may be able to receive a portion of your financial aid with as little as 0.5 credit if you qualify for the Pell Grant (see Pell Grant Policies).
Student loans do require a student to take at least 6 credits to receive any portion of the loan.
