All enrolled continuing undergraduate, graduate, intern, and Study Abroad students are required to obtain a Continuing Student Ecclesiastical Endorsement. Endorsements must be renewed annually.

Latter-day Saint students may be endorsed only by the bishop of the ward (1) in which they live and (2) that holds their current Church membership record.

Non-Latter-day Saint students are to be endorsed by (1) a Latter-day Saint bishop or (2) the nondenominational BYU chaplain.

Students who are former members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are not eligible to receive an ecclesiastical endorsement.
