BYU Independent Study high school courses are NCAA-approved. They are comparable to traditional classroom courses in their length, content, and rigor, and they prepare students for academic work at a four-year college or university. Students in these courses also benefit from interaction with teachers, teaching assistants, tutors, advisors, and other support staff as part of this nontraditional educational experience. Credits earned through BYU Independent Study transfer and appear on the student’s school transcript(s).
College athletes and prospective college athletes from schools other than BYU may not earn credits through BYU Independent Study university-level courses. This restriction applies to students who are currently eligible as well as those seeking eligibility to participate in any collegiate athletic program (e.g., NCAA, NJCAA, CCAA, CIS, etc.) or who may do so in the future.
