Earning Credit – High School Students

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 courses available.

We recommend that high school students start by taking only one online course (preferably Bible) their first semester. After their first semester, students may take up to 9 credits of online courses simultaneously. With few exceptions, only BJU’s Bible and academic core courses are available online; most required major-related courses are not available online.

Most high school students will be able to complete up to 30 credits (approximately one year) before beginning their residence program. High school students may take any courses numbered at the 100- or 200-level (e.g., En 102, Hi 101, Bi 105, SSE 200).

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 high school equivalency courses from BJUOnline. If you’re ready to transfer your credits to another college, you can request a transcript from our Records Office.

Placement tests

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 opportunity to succeed. If an ACT score is not available, a placement test should be completed. Please contact Distance Learning to schedule a placement test.
