Frequently Asked Questions

I’m not a BYU student. Can I still take the course?

Yes. Anyone who is preparing for the ACT, GMAT, LSAT, GRE, MCAT or DAT is more than welcome to attend our courses. You do not have to be a BYU student to register.

How can I register for this course?

There are three ways to register:

  1. Register online at testprep.byu.edu by clicking on the Register Now button.
  2. Call our registration line at 1-877-221-6716.
  3. Register in person at the registration desk in the Harman Building/Conference Center on BYU campus located on University Pkwy just west of 900 East. We share the parking lot with the Marriott Center.

We accept cash, check or credit card payment. However, phone and online registrations only accept credit card.

When do I need to register for the class?

Online registration closes at 5:00 on the Friday before the class starts. You may register after that time, but you must register in person or by phone. There is also a $25 fee for late registrations.

Do I need to buy any materials for the class?

No. All materials for each class are provided. However, you do need to register for your official tests.

If I register for the course, do I still need to register on my own for my test?

Yes. When you register for the BYU Test Prep class, that is only ensuring preparation, not official test registration. Please visit these sites to find out how to register for your respective test registration:

Can I sit in on a few classes before I decide to take the course?

You are welcome to sit in on the first two class sessions after paying for the course. You are guaranteed a full refund if you feel these prep classes are not for you. To request the refund, simply come to our offices at 115 HCEB, return all of your materials, and fill out the cancellation form. Our accounting office will then process the refund and post it back to the account that you used to pay.

I heard about a two-session “test drive.” What is that all about?

See above question.

If I registered already but decided not to take the course, can I withdraw?

You may withdraw with a full refund anytime before the class begins or before the third class session. Otherwise, you may email a special refund request to testprep@byu.edu. You may want to consider retaking our course, free of charge, instead of withdrawing completely.

When do I need to take my test so I can apply for grad school on time?

Every school has different policies, so be sure to call your prospective schools or look online to see what they recommend. A good word of advice is to take your test at least four weeks before the application deadline.

I took the BYU Test Prep course before 2010. Am I eligible for the free retake?

Because we did not have this free retake policy before 2010, we cannot offer a free retake to those who have registered before 2010. However, you are welcome to reregister at our classes for the listed prices.

I took the BYU Test Prep course during January-August 2012. Am I eligible for the free retake?

You are eligible to take this test prep course free of tuition costs, but will need to pay for the new materials. Since that time, we have switched all curriculum and so you'll need the materials to follow along with the lectures. Please see our High Score Guarantee page for course material costs.

I have taken the BYU Test Prep course after September 2012. What do I need to do to register for a retake?

Please send an email to testprep@byu.edu with your name, date that you took the course and a brief message stating which session you would like to retake.

** Note: you may take the course one time free of charge. If you would like to attend the courses for a third time, you must reregister at our original price.
