Ecclesiastical Endorsements

ECCLESIASTICAL ENDORSEMENTS

Whether on or off campus or between semesters, all students are expected to abide by the Honor Code, which includes (1) the Academic Honesty Policy, (2) the Dress and Grooming Standards, and (3) the applicable Residential Living Standards. Students are required to be in good Honor Code standing to graduate.

Students who are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints must fulfill their Church duties, attend Church meetings, and abide by the rules and standards of the Church on and off campus.

Students who are not members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are also expected to maintain the same standards of conduct. They are encouraged to participate in services of their preferred religion. All students must be in good Honor Code standing to graduate, to receive a diploma, and to have the degree posted.

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) the local ecclesiastical leader if the student is an active member of the congregation, (2) the Latter-day Saint bishop of the ward in which they currently reside, or (3) 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. Please see the Withdrawn or Denied Ecclesiastical Endorsement section of the Honor Code for more information.
