Are you looking for an environment that will build your faith, stretch you academically and help you discover God’s plan for your life? If you have completed your sophomore year of high school or above, we encourage you to learn more about earning college credit through our undergraduate accredited online courses for high school students.
How many credits can I earn?
The total number of BJU credits a high school student may take is limited by the amount of time a student has to devote to online courses and the total number of online courses available. Students may take up to 9 credit hours of online courses simultaneously. If a high school junior starts taking courses the summer after his sophomore year and consistently takes 9 credits, he may feasibly fit in 10 undergraduate online sessions and end up taking 90 credits (approximately 3 years) before beginning his first year in residence. However, with few exceptions, only BJU’s Bible and academic core courses are available online, and most required major-related courses are not available online. We recommend that students plan to complete at least two years (about 60 credits) of their undergraduate program in residence. Most high school students will complete less than 30 credits (approximately one year) before beginning their residence program
How do I transfer credits?
It is important to check with the college you plan to attend to find out if they will accept the credits you have earned through Bob Jones University Online. If you’re ready to transfer your credits to another college, you can request a transcript from our Records Office.
Accredited online high school pre-college programs
Course numbers relate to a primary class audience. High school students should focus on enrolling in courses with numbers 100-299. If you would like to attend courses in residence, we offer a variety of our courses through our summer school residence program.
High school students interested in taking a 100-level Math or English class (for example, Ma 101, Ma 102, En 102) should send their ACT scores to Admission prior to registering. BJU requires these scores to ensure that each of our students is placed into the appropriate class and given the best possible opportunity to succeed. If an ACT score is not available, a placement test should be completed. Please contact your admission counselor to schedule a placement test.
