BYU Independent Study was established in 1921 with a commitment to expand educational opportunities to students everywhere. We now offer more than 500 courses that have been accessed in all 50 states and in over 105 countries. We’re proud of our history and have big plans for our second century.
Our mission is to provide excellent online courses at the university, high school, and middle school levels. We offer trusted, quality courses that are accredited by trusted commissions.* Students can reach out anytime for guidance, tutoring, and other support.
Our courses help students fill gaps in local course availability, recover lost credit, and accommodate personal needs or goals. Anyone can register for a course anytime, and registration help is available during business hours. Independent Study course credits can be transferred to most educational institutions worldwide.
*At the university level, Brigham Young University is accredited as an institution by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). BYU Independent Study secondary education courses are accredited by Cognia (formerly AdvancED) and by the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS).
