Timeline


Brigham Young University–Hawaii was established as the Church College of Hawaii in 1955. An accreditation visit from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) resulted in the Church College of Hawaii obtaining full accreditation as a two-year college in October 1959 and then full accreditation as a four-year institution in February, 1961. Further reaccreditations were received in January 1964, May 1968, and June 1972.

In 1974 the Church College of Hawaii would become the Brigham Young University Hawaii, and BYU—Hawaii received a reaffirmation of accreditation from the Accounting Commission for Senior Colleges of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges in June 1976, and June 1981. This accreditation was reaffirmed again in 1986 and 1996.
