Accreditation

BYU is accredited as an institution by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). BYU Independent Study's High School program is accredited by the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC), a division of AdvancED.

Our accreditation sources are reciprocal with other regional accreditation agencies, meaning that earned credits through BYU Independent Study are generally transferable to other educational institutions.

It is recommended that you check with your school or college before enrolling in a BYU Independent Study course.
