Get Started

Student and parent at computer

Are you thinking about taking a course and are not sure how to do it? Here are the basic steps students take from picking a BYU Independent Study course to transferring earned credit to their school.

  1. Select a course from our online catalog.
  2. Confirm with your counselor that your school will accept the course credit.
  3. Register for the course online, over the phone, or in person. Please make sure to identify your school when you register.
  4. Access your course through our website using your BYU Net ID (username) and password. If you you don’t have a Net ID, select My Account and then Create Account.
  5. Become familiar with the course policies and deadlines outlined on our website and any unique policies and requirements listed in your course syllabus.
  6. Study, complete, and submit all your course assignments, quizzes, and exams. Participate in any required interactions such as language practice appointments and discussion boards.
  7. For exams, choose online exam proctoring or a local proctor approved by BYU Independent Study to administer your required exams. (A few courses may require written work on a paper exam; see your syllabus.)
  8. Complete your course and print the completion notice in your course gradebook. If you signed up through your school, your counselor will also receive a completion notice in their Counselor Portal account.
