Frequently Asked Questions
Will Other College’s Concurrent Enrollment Classes Transfer to BYU-Idaho?
BYU-Idaho has a liberal transfer policy. That said, not everything transfers, and not all transferred credits fulfill GE and major requirements.
To determine if your high school’s concurrent enrollment provider offers courses that transfer to BYU-Idaho, please use this course transfer equivalency tool.
First, select your state and the university or college sponsoring your high school’s concurrent enrollment. This will bring up a list of courses from the selected universities and colleges that have been evaluated by BYU-Idaho. It will also list the BYU-Idaho course that the other course will replace in your graduation requirements or list an elective. In some cases, it may not be transferable.
If you are looking to transfer courses that fill major requirements, visit the catalog and search out your intended major. A list of required courses will be shown. Although most high school credits will not count for college credit, you can compare the list with the courses you have previously taken to determine if any of the courses fulfill prerequisites to majors. By taking BYU-Idaho concurrent enrollment courses, on-campus or online, there is no need to worry about transferability back to BYU-Idaho.
If you need help, visit with your high school counselor, who should be able to assist you in navigating through this information.
What classes are available for concurrent and dual enrollment?
