Funding for Your Courses
The first step is for the student to talk to their counselor to see if their school has an account with BYU Independent Study. The counselor will know which path the student should take to receive state funding. Schools and Districts: When an Idaho school or district opens a BYU IS purchase order (P.O.) account, the school designee will request funding for students who sign up for overload courses. Your district is then billed directly for courses (three times per year). Setting up a P.O. account is easy—simply call 1-866-741-9144 or email our purchase order team at email@example.com. Individual students: To take a free online overload course, you will need to choose an AO course (listed below), register online, and request reimbursement. Your school counselor can help you submit a reimbursement request. For students seeking Advanced Opportunities overload courses, we offer flexible options!
