Hey Cougars,

Whew! Another week down. It's about time for a holiday!

But first, if you plan on leaving for a mission after this semester, make sure to read the Missionary Checklist information below.

Also, do you need some help finding a ride home for Thanksgiving? Read all about Zimride, an excellent ride-sharing website for BYU students, in this week's newsletter!
Missionary Checklist
Before you preach and teach.

Enrollment Services Missionary Checklist
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. We’ll give a few pointers here, but make sure to check out Enrollment Services' Departing Missionary checklist HERE for all the steps. 

Apply for Mission Deferment
You must complete the online missionary deferment to defer both enrollment and BYU academic scholarships without having to reapply to the university. Fill out this form before you leave on your mission, but after you’ve received your mission call. To apply click HERE.

Set Up Guest Access
Guest access allows another person to manage your BYU account while you’re gone. Grant guest access to a parent, sibling, or anyone you trust. Click HERE to set up guest access.

Feel free to contact the Enrollment Services Office with any of your questions. Their number is 801-422-4104.

1. Attend the Forum on Tuesday. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. will be giving the forum on Tuesday, November 19. This forum will be a historic and rare opportunity to hear from a renowned filmmaker and Harvard professor; you do not want to miss it! Watch the Forum Fifteen video here.
2. "Take a Sip" with SIP. Have you ever wondered how you can make an off-campus impact as an on-campus student? Come "take a SIP" of warm cocoa, cider, or herbal tea with an Internship Director between November 4-22 and learn about how you can earn credit, build your resume, and make a meaningful difference in solving social problems through SIP (Social Innovation Projects), the Ballard Center's on-campus internship program. Sign up for a 15-minute advisement session here. Warm drinks and chips provided.
