BYU-Idaho student applications are required to fill out the Part 3 Ecclesiastical Endorsement of the CES application on besmart.com.
The Continuing Ecclesiastical Endorsement process requires all current students to complete a continuing endorsement each year during the first semester of their assigned track while at BYU-Idaho.
|Assigned Track||Semester to Complete Continuing Endorsement|
At the beginning of each semester, the university notifies students who need to complete a continuing endorsement, placing a hold on their registration account until the endorsement is completed.
Once students complete the online portion of the continuing endorsement, they are eligible for an endorsement interview with their campus bishop. The purpose of this meeting is to foster communication between students and ecclesiastical leaders. It provides bishops an opportunity to review each student’s understanding and commitment of the Honor Code. After a successful interview, the bishop may approve his portion of the online endorsement which will release the hold on the student’s registration account.
