For this recently-completed admission cycle, BYU decisions were released on the evening of Friday, March 3. Within minutes, social media accounts flourished with news of BYU admission notifications. While the summer/fall 2017 cycle was similar to last year's pool in terms of the number of applicants, BYU experienced a slight increase in the average admitted ACT score and in the average admitted high school GPA. Additionally, students from all 50 states and nearly 40 different countries received offers of admission. Here is an early estimated profile for the 2017 summer/fall admitted freshman class:
|Average HS GPA||3.86|
Lastly, here is some important information for those students wondering, "What's next?" regarding BYU enrollment:
Registration - Students admitted to begin summer term can register for classes immediately. These students may benefit, though, from participating in our Jumpstart program before undertaking the registration process. Jumpstart begins this week!
JumpStart - Admitted students will be notified by email about our Jumpstart program. This venture will assist students progressing from being admitted to arriving on campus feeling prepared and empowered. This newsletter also contains a full article on the Jumpstart experience.
Housing - Our On-Campus Housing office has posted a message to each admitted student’s regarding housing selection and registration information. room selection will be the end of March/first part of April. The housing office will be sending out an email on March 15th with more specific information on their room selection dates.
Scholarship Notification - Scholarship notification will occur in mid-to-late April. However, admitted students can review the freshman academic scholarship matrix to preview potential academic awards.
Missionary Deferment - Many students are likely considering deferring attendance at BYU in order to serve LDS church missions. In general, students should defer AFTER receiving the mission call, but BEFORE entering the Missionary Training Center. It would be best, though, for any freshman student considering the timing of mission service to review the specific information on our deferment site.
