Student Services

Academic Advising

Advisors are available to provide support and guidance throughout a student’s time at the College. The mission of the academic advising program is to ensure that all students attending LDS Business College are supported in their course planning and progress as they prepare to become self-reliant Disciples of Christ.

Advisors do this by helping students understand program policies and procedures, select appropriate educational courses and program(s) for reaching personal life and career goals, and connect students with campus services and resources

Bookstore

The LDSBC bookstore is located on the first floor. Visit the LDSBC bookstore for hours and further information.

Disability Services

The College provides academic modifications for students with disabilities according to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Students must provide medical documentation or a copy of their IEP or 504 plan in order to receive academic modifications for their disability.

Housing

LDS Business College’s approved housing program differs from the housing program offered by other schools affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Although landlords of approved housing agree to promote the LDS Business College Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards in housing units leased to students, LDS Business College does not (a) oversee landlords’ enforcement or compliance with the Housing Policy and Residential Living Standards, (b) inspect or monitor the condition or cleanliness of units, (c) review or approve lease terms or (d) mediate or become involved in disputes between landlords and students. Students are strongly encouraged to carefully read any lease and inspect and evaluate any apartment before the student signs any lease.

Housing facilities are available to LDS Business College students through a variety of off-campus property owners, including Property Reserve, Inc. (PRI), the commercial real-estate arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The LDS Business College does not own, operate or control any student housing facilities. As an informal service to its students, the LDS Business College provides a list of possible housing opportunities on its website. Students are free to make housing arrangements wherever they like and are under no obligation to choose from the facilities listed.

Two of the rental properties listed on the College’s web site, the Plaza and the Lodge, are owned by and are under the control of PRI. PRI has contracted with Horne Lodging Properties to manage the Plaza and the Lodge on a day-to-day basis. Generally speaking, the managers of these two properties are able to exercise a greater degree of control in requiring adherence to the Honor Code standards than the management of other facilities.

The LDS Business College makes no representation or warranty as to the suitability, quality, safety, living conditions, tenant satisfaction, value, or any other factor or condition with respect to any of the housing facilities listed on its website. The student and his or her family are solely responsible for making all housing arrangements while attending the LDS Business College, including determining the suitability of a particular facility and for inspecting and otherwise evaluating the facility before entering into a lease agreement.

Plaza/Lodge Meal Plan

Because dormitory-style housing includes no personal food preparation facilities, all applicants to the Lodge and the Plaza are required to make a $500 dining services payment to LDS Business College as a condition of being eligible to reside in either of those two facilities. The student resident then receives an electronic card with the $500 balance that is usable at the LDS Business College BC Café.

  • The cards are picked up at the LDS Business College Cashier's Office on the 2nd floor of the main campus building.
  • The $500 non-refundable dining services payment is required in full before housing reservations can be made for The Lodge or The Plaza.
  • Residents use this convenient electronic card to purchase meals or snacks at the LDS Business College BC Café which is located adjacent to the main campus building.
  • The balance on the card may be carried from semester to semester until is it used up.
  • Residents have the option of replenishing the card balance at any time by adding dollar amounts to the card at the LDS Business College Cashier’s Office.
  • Any balance remaining on the card is forfeited if the student fails to register for classes at the College for two consecutive semesters, including spring session.
  • Participation in the LDS Business College pre-paid food service subsequent to the initial $500 dining services payment is encouraged but is optional.

Student Involvement

LDSBC’s Student Involvement provides opportunities designed to develop disciple learners and leaders through experiences which prepare them for their future contributions in their homes, communities and workforce.

Each event is a unique opportunity for students and employees to represent themselves, the institution and the Lord. Students are given opportunities to connect, develop and contribute in meaningful ways through a variety of events and activities under the direction of the Student Development Center.

Tutoring

Tutoring services are provided free to all students. Students may arrange for convenient times and places to meet with qualified student and Church-service missionary tutors by contacting the Student Development Center at 801 524 -8151. Students may also sign up for individual tutoring or to attend group-tutoring sessions as designated on the tutoring schedule in the Learning Assistance Lab.
