Brigham Young University Independent Study (BYU IS) offers a variety of rigorous online courses for middle and high school students to help them prepare for higher education and successful careers.
Available to middle school and high school students
Not all courses in the BYU catalog are available as a My Tech High Direct option. My Tech High only offers middle school and high school level courses. College-level courses are not available as a My Tech High Direct option.
BYU coursework is available for 1 year from the enrollment date. Students must complete Part 1 of a given course during the 1st Semester before beginning Part 2 in the 2nd Semester.
About BYU Independent Study:
Courses are taught by certified instructors who love teaching and want each student to succeed. Each course is divided into lessons with clearly defined learning objectives.
Lessons may include written content, videos, games, simulations and interactive labs, animations, helpful resources, assignments, and quizzes. Most lessons conclude with an instructor-graded or automatically graded assignment.
Courses typically take 40-90 hours of online work. 0.5 credit high school courses are comparable to a traditional semester-based high school class that typically requires around 60 hours of study time to complete.
Two free tutoring sessions per week per course are available for all students.
See additional information below:
- All final exams require a proctor. Search for a testing center site by zip code here. Many testing sites are free.
- Some courses may require books and supplies. Students purchase these items independently and may seek reimbursement with Technology Allowance.
- Students who enroll in an AP class will need to register for the exam here, as BYU Independent Study does not facilitate AP tests.
- AP courses do not guarantee college credit, as that depends on test scores and the individual college to which a student applies.
