Ecclesiastical Endorsement

Beginning in Fall 2014 the BYU-Hawaii distance learning program will require all students who are taking academic courses to receive an ecclesiastical endorsement from the bishop of the ward that holds their current membership record. When you apply through, you will be expected to obtain this endorsement. If you have problems obtaining your ecclesiastical endorsement, please contact .
