Religion Requirements

All BYU–Idaho degree-seeking students are required to complete BYU–Idaho religion credits and courses. The amount of required religion credits and courses will vary based on the following factors: 

  1. The type of BYU–Idaho degree being pursued.
  2. The amount of transfer credit already earned by the student.
  3. Previous LDS church school or CES Institute of Religion Credit earned. (LDS church school credit must be on an official university transcript. Institute of Religion Credit must be taken for Church University Credit and be noted as such on the official Institute transcript)
