Official Announcement

BYU–Hawaii Distance Learning to be Replaced by BYU-Pathway Worldwide

Due to changes in the Church Educational System, BYU–Hawaii's distance learning program will be replaced by BYU-Pathway Worldwide programs. BYU-Pathway Worldwide is now available in many parts of the Pacific and Asia. However, we know that it is still not available in all countries. BYU–Hawaii Distance Learning will continue to accept applicants in countries where BYU-Pathway Worldwide is not available, as follows:

Spring 2021 will be the last semester that distance learning classes will be offered.


BYU–Hawaii Distance Learning is committed to help students across the South Pacific and Asia. BYU–Hawaii distance learning courses are designed to:

  • Help students prepare to attend BYU–Hawaii.
  • Provide educational opportunities for students while in their homelands.
  • Help students become proficient in English.

One of the great blessings of a BYU–Hawaii education is the spiritually edifying BYU–Hawaii experience. While we are unable to bring the complete BYU–Hawaii campus to our distance students, we try to provide as much of that experience as possible. We do this by providing the same high-quality admissions, advising, and registrar support given to on-campus students.

BYUH Distance Learning class

BYU–Hawaii distance learning students benefit from a highly collaborative learning environment. BYU–Hawaii takes this collaboration to another level through video interaction. This helps our students and teachers know each other better and see each other as more than just text on a screen. Whether it be through one-on-one Skype tutoring in our English as an international language courses, or by submitting a video in a course discussion, we want our students to interact with each other, their teachers, and tutors through text and video.
