LDS Business College Institute of Religion

LDS Business College is sponsored by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. However, other faiths are represented on the campus and all are welcome.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has always maintained that education is not complete without the study of religion. For this reason, religion courses are provided so students may gain an increased knowledge and conviction of the gospel of Jesus Christ along with their technical and academic education. Because regular gospel study should be a continuous part of a student’s college experience, the ideal is to take one religion class each semester.

Graduation Requirements for Degrees and Certificates

Students must complete both religion requirements below for an AAS or AS Degree:
  • Part A: 8 religion credit hours minimum taken at LDS Business College
  • Part B: 2 credit hours of REL 121 Book of Mormon I or REL 122 Book of Mormon II.
    (These 2 credit hours count toward the 8 credit-hour religion requirement above.)
Students must complete both religion requirements below for a Certificate:
  • Part A: 4 religion credit hours minimum taken at LDS Business College
  • Part B: 2 credit hours of REL 121 Book of Mormon I or REL 122 Book of Mormon II.
    (These 2 credit hours count toward the 4 credit-hour religion requirement above.)

Transfer Credit

Transfer students must complete both religion requirements below:
  • Part A: After transfer credits have been counted, the remaining program and religion credit hours required to be taken at LDS Business College in order to graduate are determined as follows:
 
 
Total Program Credit Hours   Minimum Religion Credit Hours
45 or more   8
30-44†   6‡
15-29   4
0-14   2
  • Part B: 2 credit hours of REL 121 Book of Mormon I or REL 122 Book of Mormon II.
    (These 2 credit hours, if taken at LDSBC, count toward the minimum credit hours required above.)
If you have taken either Book of Mormon course at another LDS Church school or LDS Institute of Religion for transfer credit, that class may be transferred in to fulfill the 2 credit-hour Book of Mormon requirement. However,  religion classes may not be transferred in to fulfill the total religion credit hours required for graduation.
For example:   Total Program Credit Hours   Minimum Religion Credit Hours
Required for: AS in Business Degree   61    
- Minus credit hours transferred in:   -25    
Remaining Credit Hours to complete:   36† 6‡

NOTE:

  1. To ensure you complete the Book of Mormon requirement, enroll in REL 121 or REL 122 your first semester.
  2. No more than 4 credit hours of religion per semester may count toward the total required.
  3. Each religion course may be taken only once for credit. However, you may repeat a class to improve a grade.
