Acceptance of Transfer Credit Policy
BYU Online High School generally accepts domestic* transfer credits only if earned at institutions that are accredited by a national, regional, or state accrediting agency that is recognized by our accreditors.
All secondary education work (not U.S. accredited) done outside of the United States must be evaluated by an international credential evaluation agency. The evaluation is at the student’s expense unless a separate written equivalency assessment agreement is in place between BYU and the organization that referred the student to BYU Online High School. This includes work that may have been evaluated by a U.S. accredited institution and is reported on the transcript. BYU Online High School accepts evaluations by International Education Research Foundation (IERF) and SpanTran.
At this time, BYU Online High School does not accept homeschool secondary work for transfer credit.
*Domestic transfer credits are those earned in the United States or as credit at an educational institution that is accredited in the United States. Transfer credit is not granted for domestic secondary work for which credit has not been granted by an institution accredited in the United States and recognized by our accreditors. We do not accept international credit not assessed by IERF or an equivalent equivalency assessment provider, even if another accredited institution has accepted the credit.
