About Us

BYU student-athletes are seeking to excel academically, athletically, and are preparing for life after they graduate. The transition into university life can be challenging for any student. This is especially true for student-athletes who are expected to be good students and outstanding athletes. They are also under obligation to understand and comply with a variety of NCAA rules and regulations in order to be eligible to compete. The Student Athlete Academic Center was created to provide a place where student-athletes can receive support and resources as they pursue their goals.

One of the main priorities of the center is to assist student-athletes as they transition into the BYU culture and the world of college athletics. Student-athletes are assigned an academic advisor to help them register for classes and monitor their progress toward graduation. The advisor is the contact person for student-athletes who have academic or eligibility questions and concerns. The advisor also helps student-athletes make connections with other campus resources such as the Counseling and Career Center, Multicultural Student Services, University Accessibility Center, and College Advisement Centers.

The BYU Athletic Department is an active participant in the NCAA CHAMPS/Life Skills program, which is administered by The Student Athlete Academic Center.
