New Student Checklist


A new student checklist is now available to assist admitted students in their preparation to arrive at BYU Hawaii

We encourage all new students to use this checklist. An itemized check list will help to ensure that new students have completed all the steps necessary for a smooth transition to college life. The checklist also has valuable information that will answer many questions that might arise as new students prepare to come to BYU Hawaii.

If you are unable to access the checklist, a few of the items are highlighted below.
