The Steady Upward Course provides a class setting for students who have met with the Student Honor Office for minor Honor Code infractions. Committee members facilitate the class with talks related to Personal Honor in an effort to educate students. The students will read the assigned talk and submit insights on iLearn prior to attending class. This semester class meets Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 6 p.m. in Kimball 270.
The Return with Honor Course is designed to assist students in their qualification and preparedness to move forward on the path of discipleship at BYU-Idaho. It includes six basic assignments to help returning students measure their willingness and ability to adhere to the standards of the university. The Return with Honor Course is available for download here. Students asked to complete the course should download it and follow the instructions contained therein.
When a student has completed all of the assignments, a portfolio that includes the responses from the assignments, a letter of recommendation from their bishop, and a personal statement from the student should be submitted. The portfolio will be reviewed by the Return with Honor Council which will make a recommendation regarding the removal of the disciplinary hold. The Student Honor Office will then notify the student regarding the decision through mail. To allow time for review, the assignments should be submitted at least 3 weeks prior to the admission deadline or registration deadline when the student wants to be considered.
If approval is not granted, additional assignments may be required in order to help the returning student to be better prepared for the learning environment at BYU-Idaho.
