The BYU Continuing Education High School Online Learning Education Services Agency (“BYU High School Online Learning” or the “ESA”), also known as BYU Independent Study, is a collaborative segment of the BYU Division of Continuing Education (the “Division”) comprised of personnel and resources dedicated to and supportive of its diploma-granting BYU Online High School (“BYU OHS”) and its BYU Independent Study high school courses offered for transfer of credit to other secondary schools (“BYU IS-HS”). The Division is a division of Brigham Young University, a private, non-profit, religious institution of higher education located in Provo, Utah (“BYU”). BYU OHS is therefore a Utah-based private online high school.
The governance function of the BYU High School Online Learning Governing Body (the “Board”) is to perform informed oversight to ensure that BYU OHS and BYU IS-HS activities align with the Division’s mission and values, and to achieve measurable progress toward the Board’s vision for high school online learning. The governing body sets policy and may entertain policy exceptions or may delegate consideration and approval of policy exceptions to the Superintendent. All Board members participate in board training at least annually.
The Board is comprised of the Dean, Associate Deans, and Managing Director, Finance and Business Services of the Division. The Superintendent is the Associate Dean to whom the Director of Online Learning and Principal report. Non-voting Advisors to the Board may include, at the Board’s discretion, the Principal; the director of the Division’s Department of Research, Evaluation, and Data Analytics; Division legal counsel, and other Division or Church Educational System personnel familiar with information that may be helpful to the Board’s informed decision making, such as familiarity with the learning community, target audience, and other learning institutions.
A quorum of the Board is present whenever three or more voting Board members, intending to act as a quorum of the Board, deliberates or acts upon matters relevant to BYU high school online learning. The Board may meet, deliberate, and act by majority vote of a quorum in any in-person, telephonic, or electronic means, whether instant or serial, which enables all present to be apprised of the decision at hand, materials being used to inform the decision, and the deliberative contributions to consideration of the decision by other Board members. Record-keeping shall be by any means or variety of means approved by the Board.
The Board’s authority arises from authorization by the Board of Trustees of Brigham Young University for the Division of Continuing Education to offer high school courses and a high school diploma. The Board is accountable to the Dean’s Office Council of the BYU Division of Continuing Education to accomplish its purpose competently, conscientiously, and effectively.
The Board’s mission, vision, and values therefore arise from BYU’s and the Division’s, mission, aims, and values.
BYU OHS should extend the spirit of a BYU education by providing high school students with experiences that fulfill the mission and aims of a BYU education.
BYU OHS provides spiritually strengthening, intellectually enlarging, and character-building high school education and student support for a wide variety of students in safe online learning environments where qualified teachers, leaders, and student support educators utilize best practices for online learning.
BYU OHS is family-centered and BYU Aims based. Our values are reflected in terms of the BYU Aims, namely that BYU OHS should be spiritually strengthening, intellectually enlarging, and character building, leading to lifelong learning and service.
BYU OHS welcomes and appreciates parents, guardians, and other individuals responsible for students. In these policies, we use the terms “Parent” and “Parents” to refer to parents, legal guardians, and others responsible for students.
BYU OHS also welcomes properly enrolled students who are 18 years of age or older. Some policies that mention a Parent or Parents also apply to students who have reached the age of majority.
Please contact BYU OHS personnel in the event of any doubt as to the applicability of any policy to any individual.

Generally, a student must be at least 14 years old to be accepted to BYU Online High School.
BYU OHS may, at its sole discretion, consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Factors to be considered include whether a student can demonstrate his or her ability to succeed by submitting previously taken standardized test scores or successfully completed high school-level coursework. In addition, a student under age 14 who is seeking an exception to this policy may be required to participate in an interview with an administrator to help determine high school readiness.
Students who are 19 years or older should apply for admission to the Adult program.
Exceptions to age restrictions may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Students enrolled in the BYU OHS Semester program are members of an academic community that follows the academic calendar year. Generally, each student is enrolled in six or seven courses per semester. Students work with the school counselor to choose a diploma track and to develop a personalized graduation plan. Students are responsible to stay aware of any changes to BYU OHS policies or graduation requirements and should arrange to meet with their school counselor regularly.
An incoming 12th-grade student enrolling as a BYU OHS Semester student for the first time must enroll in both fall and spring semesters and complete all BYU OHS graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma unless the student has previously earned BYU OHS credits such that all graduation requirements in the Graduation Requirements chart will be met without a full senior year enrollment.
Students enrolled in the BYU OHS Flex program are members of an academic community. Generally, each student is enrolled in three or four courses every three months or six or seven courses every six months. Students work with the academic chair and school counselor to choose a diploma track and to develop a personalized graduation plan. Students are responsible to stay aware of any changes to BYU OHS policies or graduation requirements and should arrange to meet with their academic chair and school counselor as often as needed.
An incoming 12th-grade student enrolling as a BYU OHS Flex student for the first time must enroll in and complete all BYU OHS graduation requirements in order to earn a diploma unless the student has previously earned BYU OHS credits such that all graduation requirements on the Graduation Requirements chart will be met without a full senior year enrollment.
Generally, BYU OHS Adult program enrollment is available for students ages 19 and above in grades 9-12. Students enrolled in the Adult program are members of an academic community. Typically, each student in the Adult program follows the Standard Diploma track and is enrolled in three courses every three months or six courses every six months. Students work with an academic chair and school counselor to develop a personalized graduation plan. Students are responsible to stay aware of any changes to BYU OHS policies or graduation requirements and should arrange to meet with their academic chair and school counselor as often as needed.
An incoming 12th-grade student enrolling as an Adult student for the first time must complete enroll in and complete all BYU OHS graduation requirements as well as successfully pass the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE), which is a standardized skills assessment test, in order to earn a diploma, unless the student has previously earned BYU Online High School credits such that all graduation requirements on the Graduation Requirements chart will be met without a full senior year enrollment.
Note: Utah residents who take and pass the GED test after June 30, 2009 are no longer eligible to apply to the BYU OHS Adult program. The GED becomes their Utah High School Completion diploma. Current students who choose to take the GED and pass the test will be withdrawn from the program. Students who fail the test may apply to or remain in the Adult program.
In order to receive a BYU OHS diploma, students must meet the following credit minimum requirements for the Standard or Advanced Diploma Track. Students should communicate regularly with the school counselor to be aware of any changes in graduation requirements.
|Category||Standard Diploma Track
|Advanced Diploma Track
|Language Arts Core||3||3|
|Language Arts Elective||1||—|
|College Level Language Arts||—||1|
|College Level Science||—||1|
|College Level Math||—||1|

*at least one College Level Social Studies course must be taken for the Advanced Diploma Track
Returning students may elect to be grandfathered into prior versions of the Standard or Advanced Diploma Track upon request by the student and Parent and written approval by the principal.
The Standard Diploma Track is available to all BYU OHS students and is designed to provide students with a solid and academically challenging high school learning experience that will help prepare them for college, the workforce, etc. Graduation and receipt of a BYU OHS diploma requires the completion of 48 courses (24 credits) in the appropriate categories, regardless of the number of accepted high school transfer credit(s) that may have been earned previously. At a minimum, 6.0 credits (12 courses) must be completed through BYU OHS.
The Advanced Diploma Track is available only to BYU OHS Semester and Flex program students and is designed to provide students with a more academically rigorous learning experience than the Standard Diploma Track and will help prepare them to meet additional requirements for some universities. It focuses more on college-level core courses in the areas of English, math, science, social studies, world language, etc. It provides students with opportunities to earn college credit during their junior and senior years by enrolling in Concurrent Enrollment or Advanced Placement courses. Graduation and receipt of a BYU OHS diploma requires the completion of 56 courses (28 credits) in the appropriate categories, regardless of the number of accepted high school transfer credit(s) that may have been earned previously. At a minimum, 7.0 credits (14 courses) must be completed through BYU OHS.
While enrolled at BYU OHS, Advanced students may qualify to enroll in some of our BYU Independent Study Concurrent Enrollment courses to earn college credit and help fill high school graduation requirements at the same time. Students must have completed at least 12.0 credit hours while maintaining a 3.0 or higher GPA. More information and a Concurrent Enrollment Form can be found on our Advanced Diploma Track page.
BYU OHS offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses. These courses provide high school credit and prepare students to take an AP exam at the end of the semester which can provide them with college credit. There is a fee to take the AP exam, and payment of the fee is the responsibility of the student’s family, not BYU OHS. Visit the College Board website or more information.
Students graduating from BYU Online High School must complete at BYU OHS at least 25 percent of the courses required for graduation. These credits may be split between the junior and senior years. Students must be enrolled in the semester in which they intend to graduate.
Concurrent Enrollment courses taken and passed at BYU or through BYU Independent Study — University can count toward the 25 percent.
In-person graduation activities are planned tentatively for the first weekend (Friday–Saturday) of June on BYU campus. All BYU OHS students in good standing are welcome to attend in person or virtually. Graduating students will be required to complete a graduation application, receive approval to graduate from the BYU OHS principal and superintendent, and pay the non-refundable graduation fee.
Although most colleges and universities accept transcripts from BYU OHS, students should always consult with their intended college or university before applying to our school.
Once a student has completed a high school semester or course(s) and the final grade has posted, an official transcript can be ordered and sent to the desired location(s). Only completed high school courses with a final course grade are listed on transcripts.
For transcript questions or requests:
Our licensed school counselor reviews and confirms (if true) that all credits earned on transcripts, and/or the diploma earned from BYU OHS, are meeting or exceeding our graduation requirements.
BYU OHS accepts and classifies transfer credits earned or grade placement from institutions that are accredited by a recognized national, regional, or state accrediting agency.
BYU OHS generally does not accept credits or grade placement from non-accredited institutions.
Before a request to transfer credit into any BYU OHS program will be considered, an official transcript is required and must be sent directly to the program (using the email address listed above for each program) directly from each school that has awarded credit. The transcript must be a certified original. The format must be either a digital front and back scan or PDF. Documents that will not be accepted for transfer credit review include: any document labeled “unofficial,” grade reports, advising reports, and photos (e.g., images taken with a smartphone) and screenshots.
The following are examples of accepted high school accrediting agencies:
Even if an accredited school has accepted transfer credit into that school, BYU OHS must receive an official transcript from the accredited institution that originally granted the credit.
All high school credit (not U.S. accredited) completed outside of the United States must be evaluated by an international equivalency evaluation agency at the applicant’s expense. This requirement applies to credits that may have been evaluated by a different U.S. accredited secondary institution and reported on the high school transcript.
Transcripts sent directly to BYU OHS may be discarded unless submitted by an accredited U.S. institution. BYU OHSwill accept credit equivalency evaluations from International Education Research Foundation (IERF) and SpanTran.
The Research Evaluation Data Analytics (REDA) team will periodically conduct an internal audit of transfer credit to track accuracy and compliance with BYU OHS transfer credit policy. This is to protect the student’s academic progress toward graduation and the integrity of BYU OHS
Exceptions for the awarding of transfer credit may be granted in rare circumstances. To apply for an exception, follow step one of this formal petition procedure:
All BYU OHS students can earn a total of 2.0 Pass/Fail (P/F) high school elective credits by completing all four years of Seminary provided by the Church Educational System of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or by taking religion courses of equivalent rigor (as determined by BYU OHS) from other institutions. The following is the requirement to be submitted and reviewed for credit approval:
BYU OHS students can earn PE Lifetime Activities credit. Follow these minimum requirements to apply: Teachers/Coaches of these activities must be certified specialists in the activities they teach and must have current cards for First Aid and CPR. This also applies to courses students may take in the community or at local colleges or universities during the summer months. A student must complete a minimum of 64 hours to receive 0.5 PE Lifetime Activities Pass/Fail (P/F) credit. A credit request processing fee will be charged. The following are the requirements to be submitted for credit approval:
To expand student opportunities, all BYU OHS students may apply for Fine Arts credit for courses taught outside the jurisdiction of BYU Online High School. Teachers of these activities must be certified specialists in the activities they teach. This also applies to courses students may take in the community or at local colleges or universities during the summer months. A student must complete a minimum of 64 hours to receive 0.5 Fine Arts Pass/Fail (P/F) credit. A credit request processing fee will be charged. The following are the requirements to be submitted for credit approval:
Students in the Adult Education program can get credit for work experience. Students can earn up to 4 credits in your elective or Career and Technical Education (CTE) credit requirements. Students can earn 1 Pass/Fail (P/F) credit for every 180 hours of continuous, professional employment. A credit request processing fee will be charged. The following are the requirements to be submitted for credit approval:
Students in the Adult Education program can use college military experience toward their diploma. Students can earn a maximum 1.5 credit towards Individualized Fitness for Life or Elective credit from basic training or 1 Pass/Fail (P/F) credit for each 180 hours of other verified military training. A credit request processing fee will be charged. The following are the requirements to be submitted for credit approval:
Exceptions for the awarding of external credit may be granted in rare circumstances. To apply for an exception, follow step one of this formal petition procedure:
Credit recovery courses in core subjects are available on our Summer School page. These courses are offered to students who fail to receive credit in their school-year courses. Students have 60 days from enrollment to complete coursework, including the final exam. There is limited space for enrollment.
Students can earn full credit from these courses, but the credit will be designated as credit recovery on the transcript. There are no exceptions to this provision.
Credit recovery provides students with an opportunity to earn graduation credit for a course in which they have earned an "F" grade. The credit recovery course, letter grade, and credit earned will show on the official transcript, unless the credit recovery grade is not a passing grade. The original failed credit will also show on the official transcript and will not be replaced.
Exceptions to Credit Recovery availability may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Students may repeat any course taken at BYU Online High School if the course is still being taught or an equivalent course exists. However, unless the original grade was “F,” all grades are calculated into the GPA, and all credit counts in the total hours. No passing grade for a previously taken course will be removed from the transcript. In other words, grade replacement is not available for grades other than failing.
Repeating a course for grade replacement requires prior submission and approval of a grade replacement form, before beginning the course for a second time.
Exceptions to restrictions on grade replacement may be granted in rare circumstances. To apply for an exception, follow step one of this formal petition procedure:
The BYU OHS Credit Review Committee consists of the principal, academic chair, school counselor, one ad-hoc committee member who is a BYU Online High School educator with subject matter expertise, and any other person the principal invites to advise the committee.
All requests for exceptions to credit policy, credit procedure, grade replacement, or credit requirement, and under specialized circumstances, must be reviewed by the BYU OHS Credit Review Committee in order to be considered. The BYU OHS Credit Review Committee can modify the credit requirement for a learner(s) on a case-by-case basis.
In addition to being reviewed and approved by the Credit Review Committee, all modifications and exceptions must be reviewed and approved by the superintendent and either ratified by or disclosed to the board, according to the procedure set out in the exception procedure for the respective policy. The board must receive documentation of adherence to all relevant policies and management plans.
The BYU High School Online Learning governing board sets policy for the ESA and all its programs. No policy exceptions or modifications may be made by the Credit Review Committee or by any other person or entity, unless the exception is granted according to a procedure that is provided for in BYU Online High School policy or a BYU Online High School written management plan.
Semester Program only: Students in the Semester program follow a more traditional school year calendar that begins in August and ends in May. See the 2023–2024 Academic Calendar.
Semester Program: Semester students must complete each course they are enrolled in before the end of the semester. Students will need to create and follow a schedule to make sure all lessons and assignments are completed on time and that the course is completed before the end of the semester. Each semester is 16 weeks long plus finals week. When making a schedule consider that students are expected to attend scheduled virtual live instructions (VLIs), correspond with administrators and teachers, and participate in school activities unless pre-approved alternative arrangements are made. Most teachers are available only during regular school business hours in their respective time zones. Students will be informed of these hours and any individual variations in teacher schedules at the beginning of each course.
For convenience and information, here is a tentative weekly VLI schedule in Mountain Time (MT):
|Monday||Physics||Biology||Earth||Algebra 1 OR
|Tuesday||US History||World History||Government||English 4 OR
|English 1||English 2||English 3||ASL 1 & 2*
Spanish 1 & 2*
|Wednesday||Physics||Biology||Earth||Algebra 1 OR
|Thursday||US History||World History||Government||English 4 OR
|English 1||English 2||English 3||Health & Fitness*|
|Friday||SST||PLC/FG||Office Hours||Office Hours||Hangouts/EFF||Clubs||Clubs|
Flex and Adult Programs: Flex and Adult students must complete each course they are enrolled in within a 12-month period. Students should plan to complete 3 courses every 3 months or 6–7 courses every 4–6 months. Students and Parents will need to create and follow a schedule to make sure all lessons and assignments are completed on time and that the courses themselves are completed on time. Students can better accomplish this by setting Target End Dates on either the course level or on the Learning Management System (LMS) level.
Exceptions to completion timelines may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Semester Program: Students may add and drop classes up through the add/drop deadline of each semester (the 10th school day). A withdraw date will be indicated on the transcript if a student withdraws from a class after the add/drop deadline. Students who choose to withdraw from a class must do so officially by sending an email to the BYU Online High School counselor that notifies the school counselor that the student wishes to withdraw. Withdrawal is not official until the school counselor sends a reply email confirming that the withdrawal request was received and accepted.
Students who do not officially withdraw will receive a failing grade. When a student withdraws from a class, a “W” will be posted on the student’s transcript (a “W” does not affect the student’s grade-point average). To withdraw from classes for extenuating circumstances after the withdraw deadline, students may petition for an exception to this policy through the School Leadership.
Flex and Adult Programs: For information about Independent Study courses, please refer to the Refunds and Withdrawals policy on the Independent Study policies website.
Exceptions to the Add/Drop Deadline and Withdrawals may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Semester Program: Requests for refunds or tuition credit are reviewed by BYU OHS personnel based on the following timeframes:
Please note (as stated above) that if you withdraw from a course within 10 days of your school start date, but after 5 days of your school start date, you may receive a tuition credit with BYU Online High School, minus the withdrawal processing fee. This tuition credit must be used within 10 school days from the start of school, and no withdrawal terms are available for a course purchased with a tuition credit. After 10 days, you may still withdraw, but no refunds or financial tuition credit will be granted.
Flex and Adult Programs: For information about Independent Study courses, please refer to the Refunds and Withdrawals policy on the BYU Independent Study policies page.
Refunds may take six to eight weeks to process. Service, processing, program, enrollment, and application fees are non-refundable. To request a course refund or to withdraw from BYU Online High School, please contact us at email@example.com.
Exceptions to refund restrictions may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Students must complete all the course requirements (lessons, assignments, and exams) before a final course grade is issued. Once all course requirements are completed and the course final exam grade has posted, students will be able to see final grades. Students can see all course grades on their transcript.
All assignments, quizzes and exams earn grades as either points or a percentage. All grades are then combined to compute a final grade for the course. (Course-specific details can be found in each course.)
BYU OHS calculates students’ unweighted GPA by averaging the point value of the grades from each class. Grades are assigned point values as shown below:
|Percent||Grade||Credit Points per Hour|
Semester Program only: BYU OHS Semester Program requires assignments to be due at specific times throughout the semester based on teacher guidelines. Late work in online courses is discouraged.
A student may receive a one-week grace period for a late submission. Students can submit that assignment up to one week late without losing any points. However, after the one-week grace period, all assignments are considered late but will be accepted with a penalty. Assignments submitted after the one-week grace period may receive a 10% grade point deduction for each day up to a maximum deduction of 40%. Students who do not turn in the assignment will receive a 0%. See the following chart for deduction details:
Assignments will only be accepted until the final day of school.
Exceptions to the late work policy may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Semester Program: Semester students are expected to attend all live VLIs. Teachers will be tracking attendance; therefore, if you are unable to attend live VLIs, please send your teacher and principal an email to explain the reasons. Students who receive approval by the teacher and principal to not attend VLIs live must still watch the VLI recordings. Students will be expected to participate in exit tickets based on VLI.
Flex program: Flex students have no live attendance requirements.

BYU OHS wants to offer our exceptional educational experiences to qualified students regardless of their financial circumstances, to the extent practicable, using the policy set by the ESA governing board in the management plan. Generally, consideration to receive financial assistance is available to all students enrolled in the BYU OHS program. Students may apply for financial aid after completing the application for admissions.
Applications for financial assistance will be considered primarily on the basis of financial need, while also considering academic potential, character, and the capacity to contribute to the school community and help others develop their skills, talents, and abilities. Applications are evaluated, in part, on the potential impact their participation in this program will have on themselves, their family, and others. Students receiving financial aid from BYU Online High School must:
Students who do not meet the above Financial Aid Requirements may not be eligible to receive further financial aid in the following semesters.
The amount of granted financial aid, if any, will vary according to the need of the participant as determined by the reviewing committee and financial aid resources available to the Division at the time of application. Financial assistance is applied towards the cost of tuition and/or fees only. We do not provide financial aid or loans for computers or other school-related materials.
From time to time, the BYU Online High School may also offer academic incentive programs.
Brigham Young University is an educational institution sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and religious-based activities and seminary credit are available to BYU OHS students. However, courses offered through BYU Online High School are generally secular in nature. We offer over 250 available courses to our BYU OHS students. Ask our school counselor for an updated recommended course list to meet student graduation requirements.
For students and Parents interested in courses that include religious content, we're planning to pilot the following five Christ-Centered courses in the 2023-2024 school year:
Courses will be taught through an Independent Study format; however, students who are in the Semester program should also join the content teacher’s VLIs. Spaces are limited during the pilot, so BYU OHS students may request to be added to only ONE course for the 2023-2024 school year.
BYU OHS courses meet Utah and national educational standards. We strive to maximize student learning through engagement with academically rigorous content. Our teachers utilize multiple forms of media to explain course material and boost engagement such as videos, multimedia games, practice tests, and interactive assignments.
Please visit the BYU Independent Study KSA page for more information about our KSA curriculum.
Semester Program: Courses that are not completed in the required timeframe will expire and receive a failing grade. To prevent this, students should plan their time carefully and maintain close communication with Parents, teachers, and staff. Semester deadlines are final, and extensions are generally not available in the Semester BYU OHS program. Semester students are expected to complete all courses, including Independent Study courses, by the Semester deadline (last day of school). Exceptions may be requested. Any exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis.
Flex and Adult Programs: For information about Independent Study courses, please refer to the BYU Independent Study Course Expiration policy.
Exceptions to course expiration timelines may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Semester Program: If students need an extension in any of their courses, students must formally apply in advance for an exception. A $20 fee may be charged if approved. Course extensions must be processed before the last day of school and/or course expiration date. However, students who experience a nonacademic emergency beyond their control may petition for an additional extension before the last day of school and/or course expires.
Flex and Adult Programs: For information about Independent Study courses, please refer to the BYU Independent Study Course Extension policy.
Exceptions to course extension restrictions may be granted in rare circumstances. Follow this formal petition procedure:
Semester Program: The number of assignments varies from course to course. Most courses are structured in weekly modules, but others are more flexible. Before the semester begins, students should review each course and make a plan and a schedule that enables them to finish assignments before the deadline.
Since the nature of assignments varies by course, students should carefully follow the instructions for composing and submitting assignments described in each course. BYU OHS does not take responsibility for lost assignments. We urge students to always to make copies of assignments and to back up all files and data. If a submission is lost, the student will need to resubmit.

BYU Online High School does not take responsibility for lost assignments. We urge students to always make copies of assignments and to back up all files and data. If a submission is lost, the student will need to resubmit.
Assignment grades generally will be posted within 3–7 days of submitting an assignment. If a grade has not been posted within the allotted time, students should first contact the teacher to make sure they received the assignment.
Some assignments require more time for grading. The teacher generally notify the students if an assignment will take longer than 7 days to grade.
Incomplete or partially submitted assignments may receive a lower grade, or they may be returned with a grade of I (Incomplete). In the discretion of the teacher and under some circumstances, the teacher may invite the student to redo and resubmit it.
Some courses allow students to retake and resubmit certain assignments for a better grade. Please see individual course policies/syllabus for specific details.
BYU OHS takes careful measures to ensure learners are completing their own assessments and assignments within the virtual course. We work to ensure the authenticity of learner work through academic integrity and learner academic contract starting with the integrity of the learner login process, the ongoing submission of assignments and assessments, and learner attendance and communication expectations.
Most BYU OHS courses use an online exam proctoring service called Examity.
Students should make sure that their computer meets all Examity requirements, including a functioning webcam, microphone, and speakers. During the exam, students must allow the Examity proctor temporary keyboard control to enter the exam access code.
All courses at BYU OHS have proctored final exams. Most proctored exams can be taken with Examity, an online proctoring service that allows students to take exams at home with an Examity online proctor using a webcam and a photo ID.
All coursework (including earlier exams) must be completed before requesting the final exam. No assignment resubmissions are allowed after the final exam has been requested. Final exams must be requested prior to the last day/course expiration date. If available, a final exam retake (Examity fee applies) must be requested within one week of the original exam grading date. Final exam retakes must be taken within one week of the retake request. Courses are complete once the final exam (or retake) has been graded. BYU OHS is in the process of exploring different ways to remotely assess student performance and understanding of material. Information about individual course grading standards can be found in the course syllabus.
Students are encouraged to reach out to teachers and administration through Canvas, Buzz, and/or email communication as needed. Students generally will be added to the Parent/Student Orientation Canvas course to receive training and regular information about BYU OHS.
Students are responsible for their own learning and are expected to complete their own work and uphold the Student Code of Conduct. Students can take responsibility for their learning by:
Keys to Success:
Parents are encouraged to reach out to teachers and administration through Canvas, Buzz, and/or email communication as needed. Parents generally will be added to the Parent/Student Orientation Canvas course to receive training and regular information about BYU OHS.
A local mentor is either a Parent or an individual authorized by the Parent to provide the student with academic support and to communicate with BYU OHS staff regarding the student’s academic records and progress.
A student’s parents and/or local mentor participate in some decision-making with BYU OHS and should be willing to meet with teachers and administrators to discuss their student’s education. Parents and/or a local mentor can follow their student’s success by choosing to be set up with an Observer Role.
Parents and/or a local mentor can support student learning by:
Teachers generally will send out regular Canvas, Buzz, and/or email communication as needed.

At BYU Online High School we have the amazing opportunity to partner with the BYU Student Success Center (SSC). The SSC has a highly qualified staff that is creating programs to support our students. They hire current BYU students to act as mentors that have been specifically trained to work with high school students.
In cooperation with the SSC, we have created policies and processes for helping our students be successful in their classes. Please see information about our Mentoring Program, including our BYU OHS Academic Success Plan Policy. We have created a system that will send out an email every other week when a student's grade falls below a B. Information on these emails will include current grade, recommended interventions, and required action.
Please schedule with ANY mentor. Here is a short video explaining how to do that if you are not sure how to use our scheduling system. If you have any issues with scheduling or questions about the mentoring program, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org, and they will be happy to help.

BYU OHS is committed to improving web accessibility for our students and their parents. While not required by law, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Levels A and AA provide helpful recommendations to make web content more accessible. BYU strives to apply WCAG 2.0 recommendations.
BYU OHS is also committed to providing a learning atmosphere which reasonably accommodates persons with disabilities who are otherwise qualified to participate in BYU OHS programs and activities.

BYU OHS does not receive public funding to generate IEP and 504 Accommodations Plans. We desire to assist students or Parents, through our interactive process, to determine appropriate accommodations. When an IEP or 504 Accommodations Plan is appropriate to inform our interactive process, we rely on students and Parents to obtain an IEP, 504 Accommodations Plan, and/or other appropriate documentation from the public school the student is zoned to attend. Please submit the BYU Independent Study Accommodations Request Form with supporting documentation of the accommodation need from a qualified healthcare professional or educational institution (which may include an IEP or 504 Accommodations Plan from the public school where the student is zoned to attend). Requests for accommodations must be specific. Submitted documentation must be current within the last three years.
An accommodation request should be submitted and approved before the student begins work in each course. We strive to complete our interactive process with you regarding accommodation requests within three weeks, but some may take longer. Therefore, please submit accommodation requests as soon as possible.
Even when recommended in an IEP, 504 Accommodations Plan, or other documentation, BYU OHS generally cannot accommodate requests that include:
We look forward to an interactive process toward planning for the reasonable accommodations we can provide. We carefully consider all petitions and grievances, which may be submitted by email.
BYU OHS involves online interactions with minor participants (under the age of 18). We take careful measures to help ensure that these online interactions are safe for minor participants and program staff. The following policies apply to the online interactions below.
Parents are invited to attend any online interactions with their minor participant. This includes being present during their student’s proctored exams. If a parent elects to observe the exam, they must remain quiet and offer no assistance during the exam.
Participants (and their parents) must comply with the following rules for online interactions, or they may be removed from the online interaction and possibly the school:
Online interactions may be recorded and saved for quality assurance in a secure manner that protects the privacy of the participants. Recordings are not used for any other purpose without express permission from the participant’s parent. Each one-on-one online interaction is subject to randomized monitoring by supervisors of BYU OHS.
Any questions regarding online interactions may be directed to the principal.
Semester Program only: Communication between students; their Parents and local mentor; and teachers is integral to educational success. Evolving technology continues to provide additional methods for communicating. Many students today have access to and use their mobile phones and other personal devices as their primary communication tools.
When authorized by a student’s Parent or legal guardian, BYU Online High School teachers and other educators and educational support staff may use the student's mobile phone(s) and other personal device(s) to communicate with the student about school. Even when Parents have given this authorization, BYU Online High School personnel are prohibited from communicating with students in any way that is not directly related to and in furtherance of the student’s school activities and academic pursuits. At all times, BYU Online High School personnel are required to honor all Utah laws and regulations and BYU policies related to minor protection.
When a student’s Parent has given this authorization, approved communication methods include text messaging and the use of other messaging platforms, phone calls, and other audio and video calls.
A parent who gives this authorization remains financially responsible for the cost of any and all charges, data rates, and data use of the student’s phone(s) and other personal device(s).
See Student Mobile Phone Policy and Communication Authorization form for more information.
As with all educational programs sponsored by Brigham Young University, students enrolled in BYU OHS courses are expected to demonstrate a high sense of personal honor, integrity, and courtesy in all coursework and examinations, as well as all interactions with students, teachers, and program staff.
Students must avoid every form of academic dishonesty and misconduct, including but not limited to plagiarism, fabrication, or falsification, and cheating on examinations or assignments. Students commit themselves to academic work of integrity—that is, work that is their own, work that adheres to the scholarly and intellectual standards of accurate attribution of sources, and work that appropriately and accurately portrays research and data.
“Plagiarism” is a form of intellectual theft involving the unauthorized use or close imitation of the words, ideas, or data of another as one’s own without providing proper attribution to the author through quotation, reference, or footnote. Plagiarism may occur with respect to unpublished as well as published material. Copying another student’s work and submitting it as one’s own individual work without proper attribution is a serious form of plagiarism. Examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to the following:
“Cheating” is a form of dishonesty where a student attempts to give the appearance of knowledge or skill that he or she has not fairly obtained. Examples of cheating include, but are not limited to the following:
“Fabrication or falsification” is a form of academic dishonesty where a student invents or distorts the origin or content of information used as authority. Examples include, but are not limited to the following:
Students must always be respectful and courteous in interactions with instructors, staff, and other students. It is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct to interact with others in a way that is dishonest, profane, or unduly disrespectful.
Students must at all times honor the Student Code of Conduct.
BYU Online High School personnel have sole discretion to determine when egregious or repeated violations of the Student Code of Conduct results in termination of a student’s enrollment. No refund of any tuition or fees are available when termination of enrollment is due to one or more violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
Parent, Guardian, Local Mentor, Friend, Advocate, and Family Misconduct
BYU Online High School expects Parents, guardians, local mentors, friends, advocates, and family members of students to be respectful and courteous in interactions with instructors, staff, and other students.
Individuals who do not honor the Student Code of Conduct with respect to a BYU Online High School student jeopardize the student’s continued enrollment in BYU Online High School. BYU Online High School personnel have sole discretion to determine when Parent, guardian, and/or family or friend conduct that does not align with the Student Code of Conduct results in the termination of a student’s enrollment. No refund of any tuition or fees are available when termination of enrollment is due to failure to honor the Student Code of Conduct.
BYU OHS aligns its mission, purposes, and practices to the mission of Brigham Young University.
When BYU Online High School reasonably suspects that a student may have engaged in a material violation of this Student Code of Conduct, the student will be given notice of the allegations and a fair opportunity to respond. Upon review of the available information, including the student’s response, BYU OHS will conclude, based on a preponderance of the evidence (i.e., whether it was more likely than not), whether the student engaged in the misconduct. The review process is confidential. BYU OHS personnel are not permitted to disclose results of a review process to individuals other than the student whose conduct is reviewed, and the student’s Parent, except as required by law.
When a student is found to have violated this Student Code of Conduct, BYU OHS will use its discretion in appropriately addressing the situation and may impose a wide range of disciplinary actions commensurate with the violation found to have occurred. Examples include but are not limited to:
Students may appeal disciplinary action through the process set forth in the Academic Grievance Policy.
BYU Online High School administration reserves the right to remove students from our program if Parents, families, and/or students are antagonistic to the mission, vision, values, policies, or procedures of BYU.
For all lessons, meetings, appointments, and recordings students must be dressed in school-appropriate attire.
BYU OHS is committed to providing all students with a safe and civil school environment in which all students are treated with dignity and respect. To that end, BYU OHS has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying, including cyberbullying.
“Bullying” means a school employee or student intentionally committing a written, verbal, or physical act against a school employee or student that they should know could have the effect of:
Bullying includes relational aggression or indirect, covert, or social aggression, including spreading rumors, intimidation, enlisting friends to assault or spread rumors, and social isolation.
It also includes cyberbullying. “Cyberbullying” means using the internet, a cell phone, or another device to send or post text, video, or an image with the intent or knowledge that it will hurt, embarrass, or threaten an individual.
Bullying is strictly prohibited at any school activity, including clubs and chat boards. Additionally, any bullying that affects the learning environment is subject to investigation. If out-of-school actions or speech constitute a bullying or cyberbullying incident, BYU OHS may take action against the student who initiated the speech.
If a student is found to be in violation of the bullying policy, the student shall be disciplined by appropriate measures up to and including suspension and expulsion, loss of participation in school activities, and/or probation. If a school employee is found to be in violation of the bullying policy, the employee shall be disciplined by appropriate measures, up to and including termination.
Additionally, anyone who makes a false allegation of bullying shall be subject to discipline.
If you have been the victim of or witnessed a bullying incident, please report it by email. Reports are confidential to the extent permitted by law and are treated with care.
BYU OHS reserves the right to terminate a student’s enrollment in any school program and at any time, for Student Code of Conduct violations including (but not limited to) plagiarism, dishonesty, cheating, falsifying documents, abusive language, disrespectful interactions with instructors, staff, and other students, bullying, and inappropriate class etiquette, dress, and behavior.
BYU Online High School personnel have sole discretion to determine when Parent, guardian, and/or family or friend conduct that does not align with the Student Code of Conduct results in the termination of a student’s enrollment. No refund of any tuition or fees are available when termination of enrollment is due to failure to honor the Student Code of Conduct.
Our primary goal is to help each student reach his or her fullest potential. We work toward this goal through efforts to develop positive partnerships between students, Parents, teachers, staff, and the administrative team. This can only be done through open and honest communication. Successful communication begins with trust and mutual respect. In order to grant privacy and respect to both Parents and teachers, we ask that you follow the sequence below when you have a concern:
For NC-SARA information, please visit our Student Accommodation Requests, Complaints, Concerns, and Petitions page.
There may be occasions when a student believes his or her academic work or conduct has been unfairly or inadequately evaluated.* Typically, such differences of opinion can be amicably resolved informally between the student and BYU OHS’s faculty and staff; however, BYU OHS recognizes that this is not always possible. It is BYU OHS’s policy to encourage satisfactory resolution of academic grievances at the lowest possible administrative level. What follows are the procedural steps to accomplish this goal:
*Academic evaluations subject to this policy include grading, disciplinary actions arising from violations of the BYU Online High School Student Code of Conduct, the withholding and/or revocation of a grade for academic reasons, and the withholding of transcripts or special notation on transcripts for academic reasons.
**For purposes of this policy, “instructor” means any teacher or other individual who is authorized by BYU Online High School to academically evaluate students, or who has a legitimate need to know about the processing and disposition of an academic grievance.
Students enrolled in online courses must be able to access the internet and use the keyboard and/or mouse for basic navigation to interact with course content. Basic familiarity with browsers, email, and word-processing programs is recommended.
Some online courses may require a variety of additional skills, such as submitting .doc, audio, image, or video files. BYU OHS recommends basic familiarity with spreadsheets, presentation programs, and audio/visual/video editing software. If you are concerned about the technical demands for a particular course, please review the syllabus for a list of required software. Please contact us by email to raise accessibility and accommodations concerns or requests.
All courses require internet and a computer with a functioning webcam, microphone, and speakers. While some course functions work on tablets, courses are designed for computers, and we do not guarantee that tablets can access essential course functions.
BYU OHS courses work best when running on the latest operating system. Additionally, we recommend the following hardware:

BYU’s Global Privacy Notice details how BYU collects, uses, and shares personal information from students and participants in its programs and activities.
In keeping with BYU’s Global Privacy Notice and applicable laws, BYU OHS has adopted the following procedures to ensure the privacy of its students’ education records.
FERPA and access to education records: The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) requires that BYU OHS protect the privacy of student education records. Generally, before personally identifiable student information can be released, (1) the identity of the student must be verified; for third-party requests (e.g., from a Parent or school counselor), the requester must also (2) verify his or her identity and relationship to that student, and (3) either have been granted guest access to records on the student’s FERPA permissions form or fall within the category of individuals for whom student permission is not required.
Transfer of FERPA rights: When the student is 18 years old, or enters postsecondary study at any age, the rights to the student’s education records under FERPA transfer from the Parents to the student. If the student is enrolled in BYU OHS’s non-university-level courses and is at least 18 years old or is enrolled in BYU OHS’s university courses, regardless of age, education records will not be released to anyone other than the student and any school in which the student is currently enrolled or seeking to enroll. Access to the student’s education records may be granted to a third party if the student provides signed permission granting a specified person rights to access his or her records. View a printable FERPA permissions form.
Tax dependency: If the Parent of a student who has turned 18 or enrolled in a university course can provide tax documentation that the student was claimed as a dependent in the previous income tax year, the Parent may have access to the student’s educational records. In addition to the FERPA permissions form, proof of tax dependency must be provided each time information is requested from the student’s education records.
Sharing education records with other educational institutions: Under FERPA, BYU OHS may share a student’s education records with other educational institutions in which the student is concurrently enrolled or to which the student may be seeking to enroll. For example, if you are a high school student and have supplied your high school’s name, BYU may inform your high school of your course activity and grades. Officials of other educational institutions will typically be required to register for a verified Counselor Portal account in order to access such records or information. Students may request and obtain from BYU OHS a copy of any records shared with another educational institution.
Net ID and password: In addition to FERPA, other laws and regulations require that the BYU OHS protect sensitive personal information and financial records. BYU OHS’s systems require individuals to log in using a secure Network Identification (Net ID) and password. Sharing of Net IDs and passwords with third parties is strictly prohibited because it violates confidentiality and degrades the ability of BYU OHS to protect secure information. A student who shares his or her Net ID and password may be subject to discipline per the BYU OHS Student Code of Conduct. All students (or their Parent/legal guardian for youth registrations) are required to individually log in so personal, financial, and education information remains secure and protected.
Directory information is information contained in the education records of a student that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. BYU OHS designates the following as directory information: name; city, state/province, and country of residence; student and Parent email address; participation in school and CE activities, camps, workshops, conferences, clubs, officially recognized activities, and sports; and dates of attendance. BYU OHS may disclose directory information to third parties without notification or consent.
Parents and students have a right to restrict the disclosure of such information, and the period of time within which a Parent or eligible student has to notify the school in writing that he or she does not want any or all of those types of information designated as "directory information." To opt out, please email email@example.com.
For more information, see the US Department of Education's Protecting Student Privacy Directory Information page and the PTAC publication Protecting Student Privacy While Using Online Educational Services page.
Periodic internal audits of BYU Online High School shall be conducted by the Research Evaluation and Data Analytics Department utilizing Utah Regulation R277-116 as a guide.
BYU Independent Study Title IX policy page.
In accordance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Brigham Young University (“BYU”) prohibits unlawful sex discrimination against any participant in its education programs or activities. The university also prohibits sexual harassment—including sexual violence—committed by or against students, university employees, and visitors to campus. As outlined in university policy, sexual harassment, dating violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, and stalking are considered forms of “Sexual Misconduct” prohibited by the university.
University policy requires all university employees in a teaching, managerial, or supervisory role to report all incidents of Sexual Misconduct that come to their attention in any way, including but not limited to face-to-face conversations, a written class assignment or paper, class discussion, email, text, or social media post. Incidents of Sexual Misconduct should be reported to the Title IX Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 801-422-8692.
