College Student

Campus Strictness: Campus here is very strict, but you're generally not called out specifically for violations. Professors sometimes give blanket corrections to classes, but I haven't dealt with any corrections beyond that.

5 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Some people complain about the rules, but they're really not bad. They are helpful and essential to having a successful time at the university.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The honor code here keeps students from participating in what some might call "unsavory activities," but this does lend a certain amount of naivitee to the town as a whole. The students themselves are usually more judgmental than the teachers or administrators are.

2 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: It's not at all unreasonable to compare the BYU-I administration to the KGB. If you're not an active member of the LDS church, or otherwise very religious, you'll hate this place.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I apprciate the strictness of campus policies because I have no need/desire to party with drugs or alcohol anyway, and with the Honor Code I don't have to put up with it from others

In general, the students at BYU-Idaho view the campus strictness as a good thing. The University does have a strict set of rules called the Honor Code that students commit to follow when they apply to the school. The Code includes specific standards that commit students to keep a professional appearance, refrain from drinking or drugs, abstain from sexual intimacy before marriage, implement healthy lifelong habits, increase student safety and personal integrity, and strengthen spirituality. The Honor Code isn’t a list of standards that all church members have to abide by to be good or even exceptional Mormons. Members can have a beard and still be admitted inside the temple. They can wear flip-flops during the week and still give a talk on Sunday. They can stay up past midnight and still serve well in their church callings.

However, the Honor Code is instead a set of University rules for students and faculty to keep the campus unified in spirit. By maintaining obedience in respecting campus as a learning environment dedicated to God, students are able to contribute and influence quality learning through the Spirit. If an applicant or current student can't commit to live by the rules established as the University’s Honor Code, administration will ultimately suggest that they need to find another university.

Facts & Statistics

Students Are Most Likely to Get Caught...
  • Breaking curfew (staying out past midnight)
  • Parking without a permit
  • Wearing flip-flops on campus
  • Wearing hats in buildings
Visitation Policies
Students have to let their housing manager know when they have a visitor staying overnight. Visitors have to be the same sex as the student because all housing is divided respectively into young men and young women housing.
Did You Know?
  • For the most part, students are held accountable for maintaining the standards of the Honor Code for themselves, by themselves, and for those around them. There is no Honor Code patrol. Some teachers won't ask you to leave class if you have a hole in your jeans, and housing complexes no longer have RAs that come through and make sure everyone is home before curfew. You personally have to make the choice to live the honor code and then do it.
  • However, with more serious aspects of the Code, the University has almost no tolerance and will not permit students to continue at the school if they exhibit actions like cheating, immorality, or doing drugs.
