Course Completion, Expiration, & Extension

Course Completion

Deadlines: BYU Independent Study requires that all coursework and exams be completed three weeks before any and all deadlines that require course completion. Examples of these deadlines are graduation deadlines, employment application deadlines, and graduate school application deadlines.

All university course grades are posted on a Brigham Young University transcript. If you need your course grade to appear within a particular semester or term (on your BYU transcript), we must receive all your completed coursework and exams (including retakes) by the following deadlines:

  • Fall 2022: November 23, 2022
  • Winter 2023: April 5, 2023
  • Spring 2023: June 1, 2023
  • Summer 2023: July 27, 2023

There are no exceptions to these deadlines. However, please note that courses completed before the first day of class of the subsequent semester or term may still appear in the prior semester or term on the transcript.

Course Completion Notices: Contact customer support to request a course completion notice. High school course completion notices are available to your local institution through the BYU Counselor Portal if you have your school listed in your account when the final grade is posted.

Course Expiration

Course expiration dates are typically 365 days from the date and time of enrollment and will always be specified within your course record. Expiration dates are effective at the same time the course was purchased. If a student enrolled in a high school or middle school course expires without being completed no indication will be made on the student’s transcript. If a student enrolled in a university course has not requested the final exam by the time the course expires, no indication will be made on the student’s transcript.

Course Extension

All courses offer a 90-day extension option for $20 that can be purchased once. All final exams (and coursework) must be completed before course expiration. Course extensions must be processed before the course expiration date. However, students who experience a nonacademic emergency beyond their control may petition for an additional extension before the course expires (see Petitions policy).
