Earn BYU-Idaho College Credit While in High School
BYU-Idaho has opened all its courses to qualified high school students. Local high school students can attend campus classes. Non-local high school students can enroll in online classes.
Is the BYU-Idaho Concurrent Enrollment Program Right for You?
Junior or Senior
You must be in your junior or senior year of high school and at least 16 years old to be eligible for BYU-Idaho Concurrent Enrollment.
While good grades in concurrent enrollment can help with college admissions, bad grades can hurt! Be sure you’re ready for the rigors of concurrent enrollment courses.
How Much Does It Cost?
If you take any courses on campus, you are considered a campus student. If you take all your course online, you are considered an online student. On-campus student’s cost per credit hour is $65 and online student’s cost per credit hour is $30.
*** Students will be responsible for initial payment. All students will be required to bring in a receipt of payment to the counseling office and Mrs. Saunders will help them set up an Advanced Opportunity Account and request funding for reimbursement***
