The purpose of activity courses is to provide opportunities for students to participate in a wide range of wellness, fitness, and skill-building experiences. Such activities are designed to instill in learners responsible attitudes and behaviors essential to promoting and maintaining a physically active lifestyle throughout life.

New SWELL courses

Starting Fall 2019, Student Wellness is renaming its course titles to more effectively reflect their wellness purposes. Student Activity Courses (STAC) will change to Student Wellness Courses (SWELL) and directly connect the courses’ purposes to the Student Wellness department. STAC courses will remain, to be offered as limited enrollment courses for unique student groups (i.e. intercollegiate athletes, extramural club teams, ROTC, and STAC instructors).

Graduation Requirements

To receive a BYU bachelor's degree a student must complete, in addition to all requirements for a specific major, the following university requirements:

  • The University Core, consisting of requirements in general and religious education. (For a complete listing of courses that meet university core requirements, see here.)
  • At least 30 credit hours must be earned in residence on the BYU campus in Provo as an admitted day student
  • A minimum of 120 credit hours
  • A cumulative GPA of at least 2.0
  • Be in good standing with the Honor Code Office

Students should see their college advisement center for help or information concerning the undergraduate programs.
