Students can accelerate to graduation by taking courses year round, or take a semester off when needed. Students have up to eight years to complete a program.

BYU-Idaho Online Courses are designed around the BYU-Idaho Learning Model, with learning activities adapted to the online environment. The class progresses together through the semester and there is frequent interaction between students and with the instructor. Courses taught online and on-campus are based on the same learning objectives.
