12 Semesters in Residence

Students are expected to maintain good academic standing and to graduate within 12 semesters in residence. The I-WORK program allows students from the Pacific Rim to fulfill BYU-Hawaii’s mission and prophetic vision.

I-WORK students integrate spiritual and secular learning to provide a foundation for a lifetime of Learning. The I-WORK program assists young men and young women in developing character and integrity so they can provide leadership in all aspects of their lives. It also provides a significant group of faithful and committed church leaders who will assist in building the kingdom, particularly in the Pacific and Asia Regions. Therefore, as a participant in the International Work Opportunity Return-ability Kuleana (I-WORK) program, students promise that upon completion of their educational experience, the student will return to their home country/region.
