NCAA ELIGIBILITY

College athletes from schools other than BYU are not allowed to enroll in 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, NAIA, NJCAA, etc.) If you have questions regarding this policy please call us toll free at 1(800)-914-8931.

In 2010, the NCAA passed a proposal, No. 2009-64, which addresses non-traditional courses and initial eligibility for high school athletes seeking eligibility at higher education institutions. Our high school courses that have been approved by the NCAA for many years no longer meet the new criteria for core credit. Students seeking NCAA eligibility can enroll in any BYU Independent Study high school-level course for graduation purposes.

We are reviewing and analyzing our course delivery processes to determine if the new criteria can be met using new course delivery technology. We are working together with the NCAA to comply with this new policy and we expect to be in compliance in the very near future.

The NCAA proposal doesn't affect our accreditation in any way. Our high school courses are fully accredited by the NWAC and DETC accreditation organizations and continue to demonstrate excellence in non-traditional distance education courses by winning national awards from the American Association of Collegiate Independent Study (AACIS) and the University Continuing Education Association (UCEA). We are one of the largest distance education programs in the country with enrollments in all 50 states and 58 countries throughout the world.

For more information regarding Proposal No. 2009-64, please see the NCAA website at http://www.ncaa.org.
