What are the Courses Like?

Online Courses at BYU-Idaho follow a similar format and have the same learning objectives as campus-based courses. Students should expect to interact with each other and participate in the learning model. Learn more about BYU-Idaho courses online.

Where do I Begin?

Students who meet the admission requirements can apply to be directly admitted into an online degree program. These students will start by taking the online orientation course, GS 111. This is a one-credit course offered every block that prepares students to succeed online and charts a course to graduation. Pathway students who complete Academic Start do not need to take GS 111.
