Is there an age minimum to begin?
We recommend that students be at least 14 years old to enroll.

Will a BYU high school diploma help me get into BYU?
There is currently no direct correlation, but in the future our BYU admissions advisor may 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 6.0 to 7.0 credits (12-14 courses) through BYU Online High School to earn a diploma from BYU OHS.
Is free tutoring available?
Our team of experienced tutors is available to help your student with coursework for no additional cost. Learn more at is.byu.edu/tutors.
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.
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?
Students enrolled in either the Semester or Flex are considered full-time students of BYU Online High School. A local school would need to approve participation in activities at that school.
How much is tuition?
Courses (0.5 credit) are currently either $195 or $295 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 have a schedule and routine?
No. Flex students enjoy great flexibility in scheduling courses, but they must complete at least three courses every six months.
Is Financial Aid available?
