These are extremely challenging times for colleges and universities, including BYU–Hawaii. We appreciate the support the United States Congress has shown to institutions of higher education through the CARES Act. However, although BYU–Hawaii continues to experience significant financial losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided not to seek or accept CARES Act funding. We have notified the U.S. Department of Education of our decision so that it can reallocate resources to other institutions, some of which may not be able to open their doors to students again without government relief.
