Note: Our program admits some students with previous graduate credit or degrees, and some graduate credit may be applied toward the doctoral degree. However, these students do not have advanced standing and do not typically complete the program more quickly than students who enter the program with no graduate credit.

Note: Tuition and general fees for all academic programs are established annually by Brigham Young University's Board of Trustees. BYU is owned and operated by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS), and significant portions of university operating costs are paid with the tithes of Church members. In recognition of this support, the university assesses students who are Church members lower tuition than those who are not members. This practice is similar in principle to that of state universities charging higher tuition to nonresidents. (See http://finserve.byu.edu/content/tuition-and-general-fees#t1 )

In order to enhance diversity of spiritual/religious perspectives in our program, we have committed to provide support to non-LDS students so that they pay the same tuition as LDS students.
