Thankgiving holiday closure and IT maintenance

Our office will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 23 and Friday, November 24. Exams, High School Transcripts and other materials will need to be requested by noon on Tuesday the 21st in order to be shipped before the holiday. 

Beginning at 10:00pm on Thursday, November 23rd, the Office of Information Technology will be performing IT maintenance which will result in downtime and outages affecting BYU websites and major applications.  This work will be completed during the standard Thanksgiving holiday maintenance window to minimize disruption to University business. Maintenance should be concluded by 2am on Friday, November 24th.

New high school scholarship program

Our new scholarship program benefits all middle and high school students. This scholarship program is now completely based on the student's financial need, academic achievement, and counselor recommendation. Only the high school counselor can recommend and apply for a student scholarship. We look forward to rewarding more students with scholarships for online courses and providing our valued school counselors the ability to recommend students they feel are deserving. Only the high school counselor may recommend and submit an application for a student scholarship.
