Make Your Own Schedule

As a BYU Online High School Adult student, you have the freedom to create your own schedule, rather than following a structured schedule established by the school. This enables you to:

  • 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:

    Typical course length

Adult Enrollment FAQs

How does Adult Enrollment work?

Students complete the required 24.0 credit hours, which can include credit earned previously, but must take 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.

How long will it take me to finish?

The length of time depends on how many courses you need to fulfill the required 24.0 credit hours and how long you take to complete those courses. High school credits earned from legitimately accredited schools are generally transferable.

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.

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.

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).

What is the difference between a transcript and a diploma?

A transcript is normally required for college admission, whereas a diploma is not. When you graduate, you will be awarded both a transcript and an adult education diploma from BYU Online High School. The diploma also verifies that Adult Education students have passed the TABE. To request a transcript of all BYU coursework, visit the BYU Independent Study Transcripts page.

What if an adult student is not 19 yet?

Students who are 18 years old and are unable to attend a local school may begin taking courses in the Standard or Advanced Track and later transition into Adult Education.

Are there any additional fees?

Some courses require books and other materials that are not included in tuition. See individual courses for more details.

Fee Type Details Cost
Annual Enrollment A non-refundable enrollment fee is required annually. $125
Graduation A graduation fee will be required for all Seniors planning to graduate this school year. $150
