Deadline for Seniors

May 20 is the last day Seniors must have completed a BYU "make-up" class for graduation.

Hayward High students may take independent study courses through the BYU Independent Study High School Courses program.


BYU now offers A-G courses for credit recovery and rigorous course additions to your transcript.  View available A-G approved courses.


These courses may be used for high school credit and, depending on the college, possible A-G credit.  Visit this link to see the A-G list.

Be sure to consult your Counselor first to make sure that you are signing up for the correct course.  Teacher-Led Courses are UC approved and you must ask for them if you want to get college prep classes.  Students are responsible for registering directly with BYU and must pay all costs associated with the course.  


Teacher-led UC approved courses start at $249.

A standard high school 5 unit course start at $148 (small additional book or supplies fees may apply)

Some 5 unit elective courses cost $48.  


Scholarships are available if you go to and create an account.  Once you have your account bring your BYU NetID to your counselor who will submit a scholarship application for you.


At the end of the course the student must contact BYU to confirm that BYU has received and graded all assignments at which point the student asks BYU to mail the final exam (usually all scantron) to HHS so that the student can take the final exam with an approved proctor.  All HHS Counselors are approved BYU proctors.  In essence, the HHS Counselor starts the student off with the correct enrollment information and then only comes into play again at the end for the final exam.  All other steps including registration and completion of assignments is between the student and BYU.  Most BYU credits are accepted by HHS.  BYU automatically sends a transcript to the school Counselor but it is recommended that the student confirm the BYU transcript was received and transfered to the student's HHS transcripts for graduation credit. BYU final course grades received after May 20 may not be processed in time for graduation in June, so it is important that Seniors complete their BYU courses as soon as possible, but no later than May 20.
