Universal Student Ecclesiastical Endorsement

Welcome to the Student Ecclesiastical Endorsement site.

All students applying to a Church Education School which includes, Brigham Young University, Brigham Young University-Hawaii, Brigham Young University-Idaho, LDS Business College, and Salt Lake Center are required to have an Ecclesiastical Endorsement.

You may have a bishop, branch president or mission president of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints fill out this endorsement online for you or you can have your Ecclesiastical Leader fill out a paper form. LDS Leaders can be identified by name or by location. Applicants will be required to obtain a 2nd interview with a Stake Presidency or CES Chaplain.

Applicants to the following programs at BYU must also have two interviews to complete the Endorsement.

  • Bachelor of General Studies
  • English Language Center
  • Evening School
  • Graduate Studies
  • Jerusalem Center
  • Law School
  • Study Abroad

Students who already have an endorsement for the current Academic Year are considered "Continuing" and will only need to get one interview.

Students "Returning" after a period of more than one major semester, will need to get two interviews.

All students and applicants need a NetId to login. Make sure that you use the same NetId for your Endorsement and application.
