  • Prepare for college by learning how to manage your own schedule
  • Accelerate or decelerate your pace based on learning needs

    Each 0.5 credit hour (one semester) course is designed to be completed in approximately 80–90 hours of study with a typical semester running 16–18 weeks as illustrated below:

Flex Enrollment FAQs

Is there an age minimum to begin?

We recommend that students be at least 14 years old to enroll.

Is BYU Online High School accredited?

Yes, we are accredited by Cognia and the Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS). Many BYU OHS courses are also approved by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).

Is free tutoring available?

Our team of experienced tutors is available to help your student with coursework for no additional cost. Learn more about the BYU Student Success Center.

Will a BYU high school diploma help me get into BYU?

There is currently no direct correlation, but our school counselor can help students apply.

My student is starting her last year of high school. Can she still transfer and earn a diploma?

BYU OHS accepts transfer credits earned or grade placement from institutions that are accredited by recognized national, regional, or state accrediting agencies. Students must complete a minimum of 25% of their credits through BYU Online High School to earn a BYU OHS diploma. These credits may be split between the junior and senior year. Students must be enrolled in the semester in which they intend to graduate.

Do I need to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to take a course?

No. Our online high school courses are secular in nature and open to everyone.

What about sports or other extracurriculars?

Both Semester and Flex students are considered full-time students of BYU Online High School. A local school would need to approve participation in activities at that school.

What if my student only needs a few courses, such as AP or college courses?

Students continuing to attend their local school can take courses, including AP or concurrent courses, through BYU Independent Study.

How much is tuition?

Courses (0.5 credit) are currently either $199 or $299 each, not counting books or materials. The total cost will depend on how many credits you need to complete to meet program requirements (24.0 to 28.0 credits for a BYU Online High School diploma).

Can I still attend my local high school for individual courses?

We recommended that you complete your course requirements through BYU Online High School, but if we do not offer a certain course (band, drama, etc.), you may contact us to request approval to enroll at another school.

Does Flex Enrollment have a schedule and routine?

No. Flex Enrollment students enjoy great flexibility in scheduling courses, but they must complete at least three courses every six months.

Is Financial Aid available?

Yes. After applying for Admissions, you may also apply for Financial Aid. See more information at https://hs.byu.edu/financial-assistance.

BYU OHS wants to offer our exceptional educational experiences to qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances. Financial assistance is available only to full-time students regardless of a student’s country of residence and financial assistance applications are evaluated independently of admission applications.

Financial assistance is applied towards the cost of tuition. We do not provide financial aid or loans for computers or other school-related materials.

Financial assistance applications are reviewed each week.

Financial Aid Application
