Ecclesiastical Endorsement Policies

Ecclesiastical Endorsement

Ecclesiastical Endorsement

The Board of Trustees of BYU-Idaho requires every student attending the university to have an annual ecclesiastical endorsement from the bishop of the ward in which he or she resides. The endorsement fosters communication between students and ecclesiastical leaders. It gives bishops an opportunity to review a student’s understanding of and commitment to the Honor Code.

The bishop verifies the following:

  • If LDS, the student is in full fellowship in the Church
  • The student lives a chaste and virtuous life, including avoidance of pornography, abstinence from sexual relations outside of marriage, and abstinence from homosexual behavior
  • The student lives the Word of Wisdom by abstaining from alcoholic beverages, tobacco, coffee, tea, and other harmful substances
  • The student demonstrates appropriate and consistent church activity
  • The student is honest

The student verifies he or she is striving to live the Honor Code. Students will renew their endorsement during the first semester of their assigned track and will be notified by email.
