BYU is accredited as a Higher Educational Institution by Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). BYU Independent Study’s university program is accredited by NWCCU. BYU Independent Study’s Secondary Educational Program is accredited by two regional accreditation agencies, Cognia and Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Our accreditation sources articulate and are reciprocal with other regional accreditation agencies, meaning earned credits through BYU Independent Study are generally transferable to other universities, colleges, and secondary educational institutions.
It is recommended that you check with your college or school before enrolling in a BYU Independent Study course.
