Biographical/Historical note

The Degrees by Independent Study Program was established as a division of the Continuing Education Department. This program offered classes to students who have attended BYU previously (over two years ago) or have never attended BYU but are at least 23 years of age and have not completed their bachelor's degree; are in good standing with any institutions of higher education they previously attended (this implies that applicants will have no less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average); will abide by the BYU Honor Code and receive an annual ecclesiastical endorsement; successfully complete a 1-credit hour prerequisite Independent Study course (StDev 100), have passed the TOEFL exam (if not a native speaker of English) with a score of 500+; have been approved by the BGS admissions committee. This division has recently been discontinued. It is now called the Bachelor's of General Studies Program, or BGS.
