John L. Clarke Building on the BYU-Idaho campus.

Figuring out those last couple credits for your BYU-I class schedule can be a difficult task. The last thing you want to do is sign up for a class that is going to add a lot to your work load. Lucky for you, we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of elective classes that you can take to get you to the right credit amount. Keep in mind that with most classes, the higher the credits, the harder the class will be.

Pro tip: We also recommend looking for first or second block classes. These allow you to get those credits out of the way!
