Most students apply after their sophomore year. The application consists of four parts:

  • GPA: Grades will be evaluated by assessing the following:
    • Prerequisite GPA in ACC 200, EXDM 300, and IS 201 (applications with competitive letter grades in at least two of these classes will be reviewed more favorably)
    • Last 30-credit-hour GPA and BYU GPA (calculations will use the posted university grades)
  • Résumé: We value content-rich résumés that are properly formatted and polished. 
  • Essay: We are interested in understanding why you think ExDM is the right fit for you and how it will assist in working towards your educational and professional goals.
  • Video: The 60-90 second low-tech video you will submit with your application provides you an opportunity to demonstrate your unique skills, personality, and creativity. Help us get to know you a bit better through your video.

The application is due on the last business day of June at 4:30 p.m. MT. All prerequisites must be completed before applying.
