Distance Students

Distance Students

BYU-Hawaii Online is committed to help students across the South Pacific and Asia. BYU-Hawaii Distance Learning courses are designed to:

  • Help students prepare to attend BYU-Hawaii and shorten their time on-campus
  • Provide educational opportunities for students while in their homelands
  • Help students become proficient in English

One of the great blessings of a BYU-Hawaii education is the spiritually edifying BYU-Hawaii experience. While we are unable to bring the complete BYU-Hawaii campus to our distance students, we try to provide as much of that experience as possible. We do this by having distant students participate in their courses with on-campus students and by providing the same high quality admissions, advising, and registrar support given to on-campus students.

BYU-Hawaii online students benefit from a highly collaborative learning environment. BYU-Hawaii takes this collaboration to another level through video interaction. This helps our students and teachers know each other better and see each other as more than just text on a page. Whether it be through one-on-one Skype tutoring in our English as an International Language courses, or by submitting a video in a course discussion, we want our students to interact with each other and their teachers through text and video. 

Please note that if you have ever attended BYU-Hawaii campus you do not qualify as a distance student. However, you are still able to take online courses. See the Former On-Campus Student page for more information.
