If I come to BYU as an Evening Student and do well, will that allow me to be admitted to BYU and attend as a fully matriculated student in the future?

Generally, students transferring to BYU with credits earned at other institutions are expected to have a minimum of 24 earned hours and a transfer GPA above the B+ range (the average is an A-). Hours earned as an Evening Student at BYU will be counted as part of the earned hours and GPA requirement for transfer students.

BYU is an academically difficult environment and very few students get all A's. Therefore, evening students who are seeking regular admissions and need to enhance their GPA may have a better chance by attending another college or university which is less academically competitive than BYU. If you wish to discuss more about your specific circumstances we recommend scheduling an in person or phone appointment with our academic advisor.
