Our online degree program allows students the flexibility to finish their degree while balancing a busy life, so the time it takes to complete it varies for each person. 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.

Students who meet the admission requirements can apply directly to an online degree program to begin the next semester. Once admitted, students can begin immediately working on program requirements. Students who did not come through the Pathway gate are encouraged to take GS 111: Introduction to BYU-Idaho in their first semester. This one-credit block course prepares students to succeed in the online environment as well as charting a course to graduation.
