Admitted Freshmen/Transfer Students Guide

Ho'omaika'i (Congratulations) on your admission to BYU–Hawaii!
This guide will help you with the next steps that need to be taken care of before your arrival to campus.
1. Admitted Checklist
Read your admissions letter carefully AND confirm your intent to enroll with the Admissions Office.

If you are planning on deferring admissions, visit the Admissions Office website

Activate your campus student email address. All university communications are sent to your BYUH email account, so be sure to check it often and submit requested information in a timely manner
2. FAFSA
Complete a FAFSA at fafsa.ed.gov if you are interested in need-based grants and loans

Check your financial aid status on your Student Account at mybyuh, if you already completed the FAFSA. Follow up in a timely manner on any requests from the Financial Aid Office

Submit all verification paperwork if selected
