Certificate & Degree Programs
BYU-Idaho provides an affordable, flexible way for students to earn a certificate or degree online*.
Through stackable degrees, students can choose from several different online programs and earn a certificate, associate degree, bachelor's degree, or all three.** This approach helps students gain skills and improve employability at each step along their educational journey. By stacking certificate and degree options, students can earn three offerings for the cost and time it would take to earn just one bachelor's degree.
Depending on previous university credits or educational goals, students are free to choose a path that's right for them by beginning with a certificate, associate degree, or immediately starting on their bachelor's degree.
After students are accepted to attend BYU-Idaho Online, they may contact an advisor for additional program planning help by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Eligibility: To become eligible for a BYU-Idaho online program, students must either a) successfully complete PathwayConnect with a 3.0 GPA or higher, or b) earn a minimum of 15 on-campus credits at one of the colleges or universities operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Individuals who don't meet one of these requirements should consider joining PathwayConnect.
*Degrees are not accredited in any other country, and accreditation is not sought outside the U.S.
**Not all programs are recommended for all areas. Students are encouraged to start with a certificate first, and then lead into an associate and bachelor's degree program.
