You Can Do It All!
“Before I heard about BYU Independent Study, I worried that serving as Miss Idaho for a year would put me behind in school. I was surprised and impressed by the low tuition and the huge selection of courses. Even though my life is really busy, I can still work on my classes anywhere, anytime I have a break. BYU Independent Study truly helps me do it all!”
With BYU Independent Study, you can enroll in courses anytime throughout the year and have up to a year to complete them. Whether it’s creative writing or tennis, English or biology, you can complete your course whenever and wherever you choose.
All of our courses are taught by certified instructors who are passionate about what they teach. NEW Instructor-Guided courses allow students to interact with our award-winning instructors by participating in live videoconferencing.
- As the end of the school year approaches, thousands of BYU Independent Study students are preparing for their high school graduations. We would like to remind you of important graduation procedures and guidelines that can be found on the What's New page.
