Dress & Grooming


“The way you dress sends messages about yourself to others and often influences the way you and others act. Dress in such a way as to bring out the best in yourself and those around you.”

–President Thomas S. Monson–


Dress & Grooming Standards

The dress and grooming of both men and women should always be modest, neat, clean, and consistent with the dignity adherent to representing The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and any of its institutions of higher education. Modesty and cleanliness are important values that reflect personal dignity and integrity, through which students, staff, and faculty represent the principles and standards of the Church. Members of the BYU, BYU-H, BYU-I, and LDSBC communities commit themselves to observe these standards, which reflect the direction given by the Board of Trustees in the Church publication, "For the Strength of Youth." These guiding principles apply at all CES institutions of higher education. The application of these principles may vary slightly at the various institutions in accordance with local conditions and circumstances. Revised BYU-Hawaii Dress and Grooming policies are forthcoming in the Fall 2018 semester.
