About the Program

High School Credit

All participants who successfully complete French Camp will receive 1 credit hour (the equivalent of 2 semesters or 4 quarters) of 2nd year French, 3rd year French or 4th year French. A course completion notice and course grade will automatically be mailed to the high school indicated by the participant during the registration process. Providing a high school name is optional, and once provided, the name can be removed by the participant anytime until the course is completed if the participant does not want to accept the credit and grade earned.

Participants from outside of Utah should confirm with their school counselor that their school will accept high school credit from BYU Independent Study.
