Grade 6 - 12 (Age 11 - 18)
BYU Independent Study
BYU Independent Study offers a variety of rigorous courses for middle and high school students to help them prepare for higher education and successful careers.
Courses are online and self-paced and don’t require attending live class times. Course content may include videos, computerized labs, interactive activities, tutorials, and animated clips.
Assignments are required and teacher-graded. Students benefit from teacher support through responsive feedback and virtual office hours.
See additional information below.
Not all courses in the BYU catalog are available as a My Tech High Direct option.
Courses are middle and high school level; no college credit is available.
High school courses taken before 9th grade do not count on a high school transcript.
Diploma-seeking students in grades 9-12 must finish coursework and the final exam by the end of each semester. Registration for the second half of a course occurs in early January. Students must complete Part 1 of a given course before beginning Part 2 in the 2nd Semester.
All final exams require a proctor. Search for a testing center site by zip code here. Many testing sites are free.
Some courses may require books and supplies. Students purchase these items independently and may seek reimbursement with Technology Allowance.
Students who enroll in an AP class will need to register for the exam here, as BYU Independent Study does not facilitate AP tests.
AP courses do not guarantee college credit, as that depends on test scores and the individual college to which a student applies.
Text-to-speech accommodations are available. Students who require additional accommodations may wish to select another program.
