Congratulations on your decision to serve a mission! As you prepare to leave, there are some things you need to take care of to ensure a smooth return to BYU.
You can also attend or watch our Missionary Deferment Workshop for valuable information about missionary deferments. The workshop walks you through the important things you need to know and do before, during, and after your mission.

By submitting the deferment, the fall/winter portions of on-campus academic scholarships you are offered will be deferred until you return. Check with your department for other awards.
Off-campus scholarships can be deferred (for missionaries only) as long as your donor approves. Your donor needs to send us documentation that they approve for us to apply your funds to a future semester. Donors can send deferment approvals to firstname.lastname@example.org.
