How to Search for Classes

Brigham Young University does not publish a print-copy of the class schedule. However, detailed information pertaining to a class is available online via a searchable class schedule. The class schedule is also available from MyBYU. The detailed course information available from the class schedule makes it a valuable tool for students as they are planning their schedules prior to advising and registration. The class search includes course descriptions, course outcomes, prerequisites if applicable, course limitations, and any provided syllabi.


Instructions and Filters

Once on the class schedule, select the semester you want to search (Fall, Winter, Spring-Summer) from the 1st drop down. You can filter by term in the 2nd drop down. The default, "All", will search both semester and term classes. Search by any combination of the filters below.

To change your search, hit New Search. 

To start over completely, hit Clear All.
