Independent Study courses for credit or grade?

My daughter is going to be taking a course via BYU Independent Study for an elective course. Do you know if the course at BYU Independent Study for HS transfers only as a credit and will not affect her GPA or is the course for grade and she will have to take that into consideration for her GPA?

All dependent upon the college if she gets credit or if the course is calculated into her GPA.

For the California UC’s and CSU’s, it will be calculated into her GPA if she plans on applying to these schools if the course is on the a-g course list.
