Estimated College Expenses

Educational expenses have been deliberately kept at a minimum at Brigham
Young University. At a time when yearly costs at public colleges are typically
well above $2,500 and private college expenses are above $3,500, BYU con-
tinues to offer a unique, high-quality educationsd experience for much less.
This is possible because of Chxirch financial support, which covers more than
70 percent of the University's total expenses.

A student may expect the following basic costs for a year's study at BYU:



Tuition and fees
Board and room
Textbooks and supplies

Personal expenses must be added to these totals.

A student entering the University should have made arrangements to cover
his enrollment expenses and should have funds on hand sufficient for at least
his first semester. University financial aid is available to supplement student
and family savings through one or more of the following programs: Scholarships
and Awards, Student Loans, and Student Employment. Eligibility for each is
described below.



Scholarships and Awards

Undergraduate Scholarships are incentives and rewards for scholastic excellence.
Ordinarily, successful scholarship applicants will have grade averages of at least
B+ and, in the case of high school seniors, American College Test results in
the 80th percentile of national college-bound norms.

Students qualify through scholastic excellence for assignment to a one-year
or foiu*-year renewable scholarship. Financial need, as indicated by a need
analysis described in the application, will determine the amount of the scholar-

ship. Lack of need or the absence of the Family Financial Statement will result
in a scholarship with a minimum stipend.

Scholarship application deadlines are:

New Freshmen February 1

Transfer Students April 1

Former BYU Daytime Students April 1

Continuing BYU Students April 15

All candidates will receive written notification of their standing.

Awards are available to talented musicians, artists, dancers, leaders, and actors.
These awards, avsiilable only to new freshmen and transfer students, are given
primarily on the basis of the student's demonstrated talent, rather than scho-
lastic achievement alone. Their values range from partial to full tuition and fees
for one year. The application deadline for all talent awards is February 1.

Grants-in-Aid take two forms: the student athletic grant, and the grant for
needy students.

Outstanding athletes receive grants to support their study while representing
the University in collegiate athletic competition. BYU head coaches recommend
deserving players to the University Financial Aids Committee, which in turn,
in compliance with National Collegiate Athletic Association regulations, makes
the awards.

Needy, academically successful students may receive modest financial assis-
tance through grants-in-aid when family resources are insufficient to meet the
costs of college attendance. The most needy and promising applicants receive
first consideration for these limited grants. A student may either apply directly
for a grant by submitting a gremt-in-aid application form or be considered on
the basis of his undergraduate scholarship application if he does not qualify
for a scholarship and has submitted his Family Financial Statement. Students
should apply for a grant-in-aid no later than February 1.

ROTC Financial Aid. Both AROTC and AFROTC four-year program students
are eligible for financial support on a competitive basis. Selected students re-
ceive all tuition, fees, and associated costs as well as $50 for monthly subsistence
and $75 to cover book costs. Interested students should contact the appropriate
ROTC office.

Division of Continuing Education Scholarships and Awards. Scholarships and
awards are offered by the Home Study and Evening Classes departments as well
as the Centers for Continuing Education. Applications may be obtained from
the Scholarship Office or from the sponsoring departments.

Danforth Graduate Fellowships. These fellowships are available to outstanding
graduating seniors who plan college teaching careers and plan to study for the
doctorate or other appropriate terminal degees. Applicants, male or female,
single or married, must be less than thirty years of age and must demonstrate
outstanding academic ability. Fellowships are open to persons of any citizenship
for study in U. S. graduate schools.

Danforth Fellowships may be held concurrently with any other national fellow-
ship; when this is the case, however, the Danforth Fellowship will be without
stipend until the other fellowship lapses.

The present maximum annual stipend is $2,400 plus tuition and fees for single
students. Married students receive $2,950 plus tuition and fees and dependency
allowances for children.

The BYU liaison officer may nominate five students to the Danforth Founda-
tion by November 1. All interested students should contact the liaison officer.
Dr. C. Terry Warner, 436 JRCL, by October 15. All applicants must take the
Graduate Records Examination on or before October 25.

Woodrow Wilson Fellowships. Fellowships are available to outstanding graduating
seniors in the humanities and social sciences who are planning college teaching

careers. Candidates in mathematics and science, if U. S. citizens, must apply
simultaneously for a National Science Foundation Fellowship and must accept
if that award is offered. Grantees must not be registered in graduate school
at the time of nomination by a faculty member, must hold a bachelor's degree
at beginning of tenure, and must attend graduate school at a university other
than the imdergraduate institution. The stipend is $2,000 plus tuition, fees, and
an allowance for dependents.

Applicants must be nominated to the foundation by a University faculty
member by October 20. Upon nomination, the student will receive application
forms from the foundation. Applications must be completed and returned by
November 15. A list of outstanding applicants, or Woodrow Wilson Designates,
will be made in January, and on April 15, the foundation will publish the
names of those designates being offered Woodrow Wilson Fellowships.

Scholarships for American Indians. Assistance in obtaining American Indian
scholarships and awards may be obtained by contacting the BYU Indian Edu-
cation Center.



Student Loans and Financial Aid

Church Long-term Loans are available to worthy Church members who are
full-time students in good academic standing and whose combined personal and
family resources (including any scholarships, awards, grants, and campus em-
ployment) are inadequate for the continuation of full-time study. These loans
are not available to first-semester freshmen. Long-term loans are negotiated
with a note that requires a co-signer.

Full-time students may borrow up to the following yearly maximum amounts:

Freshmen (second semester) $ 300

Sophomores and Juniors 600

Seniors 1,000

Graduates 1,500

Maximum cumulative amount to any one student 3,000

Short-term Loans are available for emergency assistance to students whose
income is assured but delayed. These loans bear no interest and must be repaid
within the current semester. Short-term loans can cover tuition, books, fees and
other school expenses up to $3(X) per semester for students who are in good
academic standing. Ck)-signers are also required for these notes.

Federally Insured Bank Loans can be negotiated with any participating lending
institution. A needy BYU student may apply for this type of loan at his local
bank if he is not a borrower under the Church Long-term Loan Program. The
University asks its students to avoid unnecessary debt by participating in only
one of these two long-term loan programs.

Interest is normally paid by the government while the student is in school
if his family income is low enough to qualify. Repayment of the principal and
interest by the student begins after he has completed his course of study.

For current information on the stipulations and amounts available under this
Federally Insured Bank Loan Program, the student should contact his local
bank.



Student Employment

The Employment Office assists students in finding part-time emplojmaent, both
on and off campus.

In most cases, the amount of money earned through part-time work is not
sufficient for complete self-support; therefore, the University recommends that
a student not attempt to support himself entirely through part-time employment



40 FEES AND FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE



while in school. Such a program leaves little time for academic work and those
extracurricular activities necessary for a well-rounded education. Furthermore,
no student is permitted to work more than twenty hours per week on campus.
It is therefore suggested that a student arrange for some outside support to
supplement his part-time earnings.

Students needing employment are urged to register with the Employment
Office as soon as possible after they arrive in Provo and are available for work.
Hours available and the possession of skills required by employers are very
important. Inasmuch as the number of students seeking part-time work is very
high, those whose needs are great are requested to report at the Employment
Office periodically after filing their initial applications.

Many students will not succeed in finding employment immediately; some will
be delayed three or four weeks, while others will go an entire semester without
finding suitable work.

Students from foreign countries are required to obtain work permits before
accepting employment. Such students may receive assistance from the foreign-
student adviser in obtaining the necessary permit.



SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 41




Academic




Summer School

Brigham Young University offers eight-week terms of credit courses during
the spring and the summer. More than one thousand University courses are
offered by practically all undergraduate colleges and the Graduate School to
students wishing to begin, continue, complete, or enrich their formal education.

All University facilities are available during the Spring and Summer term. Credit
and noncredit workshops, seminars, conferences, and institutes are offered, and in
August a summer convocation is held.

To supplement the regular faculty, outstanding educators and recognized
authorities in various fields come to BYU to teach summer classes and add
to the academic offerings. In addition to the regular scholastic offerings, a
rich program of lectures, musicals, plays, etc., provides a wide variety of
cultural experiences. Devotional and forum assemblies are held on Tuesday
and Thursday mornings, with General Authorities of the Church and outstanding
authorities in various academic fields as the speakers.

Attending school during the summer months has become popular, since stu-
dents can gain valuable college credits and at the same time enjoy the vacation
extras available because of BYU's location in the heart of scenic America. A sum-
mer School bulletin is printed annually and is distributed upon request by the
Summer School Office, C-356 ASB.



Honors Program

The Honors Program is a set of academic opportunities designed for under-
graduates of exceptional promise. Open to qualified students in every college

of the University, it seeks to enrich, rather than shorten, their academic ex-
perience. Students participate in Honors while completing the degree require-
ments of their respective departments.

The student body of the BYU Honors Program is among the finest of its kind
in the nation.

Courses.

The Honors student has access to a special Honors curriculum consisting of
Honors seminars. Honors sections of departmental general education courses, and
Honors course sequences in certain majors. These courses, typically small in
size and demanding in content, are taught by outstanding faculty members.

In addition to the courses offered during the academic year, special seminars
are provided for selected incoming Honors freshmen just prior to Fall Semester.

Individual Curriculum Planning.

The Honors student tailors his general education courses to his own objectives
and interests, subject to administrative approval. Extensive individual advisement
from both program and University sources is available to the student as he
plans his course work and his career. Periodically, the student gives his faculty
adviser or a directorate member an accounting of his work, and his progress
is reviewed in detail at least annually by £in officer of the program. In his
senior year, the student submits to a comprehensive review of his work, which
includes an oral examination on the basis of which he may be awarded an
Honors designation at graduation.

Research, Creative, and Paraprofessional Projects.

Honors students are encouraged as upperclassmen to undertake a research or
paraprofessional project under the direction of a faculty adviser. These projects
are related to the student's individual career objectives and include scholarly
essays and creative works, research and teaching assistantships, internships, and
traineeships. Some paraprofessional projects are carried out in off-campus loca-
tions; among these are projects involving educational, social, technological, or
medical work in luiderveloped areas of both the United States and other
countries. Academic credit is given for approved projects that entail substan-
tial scholarship; of these, the most outstanding earn for their authors the desig-
nation "University Scholar."

Extracurricular Activities.

The Honors Program sponsors extracurricular activities designed to provide
intellectual stimulation and to encourage student interaction. Lectures, colloquia,
films, and professional entertainment are regularly offered under the direction
of student administrative committees.

Admission.

A student may apply for Honors Program membership at the time application
is made for admission to the University or at any time before the final semester
of his college career (the earlier the better). Admission criteria include indi-
cations of intellectual power, motivation, and self-discipline, as revealed in
examinations, academic records, recommendations, essays, and/or interviews.
Every effort is made to keep the doors leading into and out of the program
open, so that places are always available to students who awaken intellectually
after coming to college. Application forms and additional information about
Honors at BYU may be obtained by contacting the Honors Program, 436 JRCL.



Institute of Government Service

The Institute of Government Service offers graduate studies leading to the
Master of Public Administration degree. The aim of the program is to provide
preparation for leadership careers in the public service. The program is also
designed to meet the needs of those seeking positions with public and private

government research organizations and semiprivate organizations whose purposes
are public. Students from a wide range of undergraduate backgounds are ad-
mitted. The program is administered by the director of the Institute of Govern-
ment Service.

For information concerning course work and other requirements, refer to the
Graduate School catalog.

Forums and Lyceums

Since its earliest years, Brigham Young University has brought to its students
and the community men and women distinguished in letters and the arts.

Forum assemblies, held each Thursday morning, feature speakers and artists
who offer students a better understanding of contemporary civilization. Lyceums
are evening programs of great cultural value. During the 1971-72 school year,
the following were scheduled for the forum and lyceum series:

Division of Continuing Education

The purpose of the Division of Continuing Education since its establishment in
1921 has been to provide educational programs and University services for
adults who do not have opportunities for daytime study at BYU and to augment
the general curriculum as a convenience to daytime students. Services range
from off-campus programs, lectures, correspondence study, and community
services — both through off-campus centers and through extended programs in
wide geographic areas — to formal, on-campus classroom offerings, both credit
and noncredit, extended and short-term.

In addition to special, part-time faculty members, many teachers of the courses
scheduled through the Division of Continuing Education are selected from the
regular BYU faculty.

The same University standards required of regular daytime students apply to
those enrolled through the Division of Continuing Education.



44 SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS



Requirements for Enrollment in Continuing Education Classes. Anyone having the
desire and the necessary ability may enroll for noncredit classes. Credit classes
are open to —

1. matriculated daytime students;

2. nonmatriculated students who hold bachelor's degrees (Degree-seeking gradu-

ate students should be admitted by the Graduate School.);

3. those who wUl be twenty-one years of age or older within the school year

in which they intend to register;

4. high school graduates or those not yet twenty-one years of age who are

granted special permission to register;

5. those who wish to audit classes.

Students who have been suspended from Brigham Young University or any
other institution of higher learning for any reason are not eligible to register
in continuing education classes.

Student Responsibility. Acceptance in a continuing education course does not
constitute acceptance by Brigham Young University or any other university on
a degree-seeking basis. It is the responsibility of each student to gain admission
to the university of his choice as a degree-seeking student through the normal
procedures listed in the university catalog. At BYU, this may be accomplished
through the Office of Admissions and Records.

The Division of Continuing Education at BYU takes no responsibility for the
acceptance of a student's credit toward a degree or for accreditation purposes
of any nature at any university. Clearing courses for accreditation of any kind
prior to enrollment is the responsibility of the student.

Evening Classes

The Department of Evening Classes has a major responsibility of providing
college-level educational opportunities for adults. In addition, the department is
a service for daytime students who experience scheduling difficulties and /or
prefer the sm2dler evening sections which usually meet only once a week.

A schedule of courses is published each semester and is available upon request
at the Evening Classes office, 225 HRCB. Evening classes are also listed in the
daytime class schedule as sections 90 through 99.

In the event that fewer than 15 students register for any one evening class,
that class may be cancelled. An attempt will be made to notify students of
cancellations and to invite them to join other classes. Full refimds are made
for cancelled classes unless the student registers for other classes.

Regular Daytime Students may enroll in evening classes by picking up section
90 through 99 class cards during scheduled day registration each semester. An
additional fee of $3 per semester hour is charged the day student.

Withdrawal from evening classes is accomplished by following regular, day-
class procedures, including the obtaining of teacher signatures. The student may
apply for a refund of the $3-i>er-hour fee at the Registration Office, B-162 ASB,
when he turns in his change-of-registration form. The cashier will forward the
refund approximately two weeks later. Students will not be charged a late drop
fee if a class has been cancelled.

Community Students may register early by mail or during the announced regis-
tration dates. Tuition and fees and the courses available are listed in the class
schedule. At scheduled times prior to and during registration, counselors are
available to aid the student in planning his course work.

In order to drop a class, the community student must complete an evening
class withdrawal form, available in 225 HRCB. In this case, the teacher's signa-
ture is not necessary. If class enrollment has exceeded the specified or restrictive
limit, the student must obtain the teacher's approval and signature in order to



SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 45



add that class. A change fee of $5 is charged for each add-drop form presented
after the first week of the semester unless the change is the result of a can-
celled class. Since refunds are prorated according to the nvimber of class meet-
ings the student could have attended, it is highly advisable for him to complete
withdrawal promptly. No refunds will be made for withdrawals after the first
half of the semester.

Veterans are eligible to enroll under the G.I. Bill if they meet the eligibility
requirements of the Veterans' Administration.

Home Study

Through its Home Study program, the Division of Continuing Education offers
nearly 300 college-level credit courses, providing practical and convenient solu-
tions for students with scheduling problems and for working students, armed
forces personnel, and others who cannot take all their classes in residence. Home
Study is education through a modified correspondence medium — the University's
"portable program," which can bring BYU to the student, anytime, anywhere.

A student may register for a Home Study course at any time during the
year by mail or by registering at the Home Study Office, 210 HRCB. Home
Study catalogs, which list all courses offered and include complete policies, pro-
cedures, £md enrollment forms, are available without charge.

The student completes course lessons and mails them to the Home Study
office, and from there they are sent to a BYU faculty member, who checks,
grades, and returns them with comments and suggestions. Final examinations
