Do I have to be a Mormon to attend BYU–Hawaii?

  • No. However, because members of the Church support the church through their donations, LDS (Mormon) students pay a lower tuition cost than do non-members.
  • Approximately 3% of our total enrollment is made up of non-LDS students.
  • Members will have attended seminary or institute and who have served as missionaries for the Church will also be given extra consideration for admissions.
  • Although you are not required to be a member, we expect all BYU–Hawaii students to reflect the standards of the Church in their daily lives.
