The BYU Independent Study High School Program is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) and by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC).
Courses can be taken through a paper/pencil version or an online version. The student studies the materials, submits lessons, takes a final exam with a proctor or at a testing center, and receives a course grade that can be transferred to the school of their choice. BYU Courses can be taken by anyone in the world from anywhere!
How does it work?
Students register for a course online and are mailed course materials the same day. The course is ready to begin immediately. After submitting all of the course assignments, students take a final exam with a certified proctor or testing center in their area.
- After lessons and exams have been completed, a course completion notice or transcript will be sent to the educational institution the student has designated.
- It is recommended that students check with their school before enrolling in a BYU Independent Study course.
