Planning Your Concurrent Enrollment Course Schedule

Plan for your concurrent enrollment general education, major, and elective courses with these course planning tools.
Available Courses
All BYU-Idaho classes are opened to high school students if the appropriate prerequisite requirements are met. To see all courses, view our catalog below.

Students should work with high school counselors to ensure that the BYU-Idaho courses they select also meet high school graduation requirements.

FYI: Concurrent Enrollment students are limited to fifteen credit hours per semester.

Pre-requisites
As you prepare to register, you may find that some of your courses have pre-requisites that need to be fulfilled. Often students get anxious when they see that an ACT or SAT score is required, but they have not taken either test.

Fortunately, BYU-Idaho offers more affordable and convenient alternative exam options that meet the course pre-requisites. These exams are the ALEKS Math Exam and the Basic Writing Exam.

Understanding Courses

If you are planning to complete a college degree, you will want any Concurrent Enrollment courses you take in high school to apply toward your eventual college graduation. You don't want to waste time and money taking classes that won't help you progress. So, it's important to know that there are typically three kinds of college courses:

  • General Education Courses
  • Required Major Courses
  • Elective Courses

General Education Courses
In a college major, your studies are focused on a particular subject or career path. These courses help you progress toward a degree,but they can still be good options for Concurrent Enrollment students who know what major or discipline they want to pursue or explore

Elective Courses
If they help you graduate, elective credits can be good. But if you have too many elective credits that fall outside graduation requirements, you've wasted time, effort, and money. In fact, some majors don't have room for electives, so none are required to graduate.

Your high school counselor should be a resource to help you navigate which Concurrent Enrollment courses to take. The BYU-Idaho catalog can be accessed online and contains all requirements for courses, degrees, and general university requirement
