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.
NEW Teacher-Led Courses
In our NEW Teacher-Led courses, students interact with instructors in live orientations, live lessons, one-on-one mentoring, and discussions. And if they want to learn at their own pace, each live session is also recorded and available online anytime.
