New Degree Structure Launching April 2019
Research indicates that students who complete a certificate are 41 percent more likely to continue toward a bachelor’s degree.
Available anywhere in the world, BYU-Pathway Worldwide provides access to quality higher education within a spiritually based environment.
“It is a miracle that we can say today that BYU-Pathway is a school in Zion, wherever Zion is.”
–Elder Kim B. Clark
The mission of BYU-Pathway Worldwide is to develop disciples of Jesus Christ who are leaders in their homes, the Church, and their communities. Millions of Church members throughout the world don’t have access to higher education and the improved employment that comes with it. Why? It may be because higher education costs too much, they lack confidence, or there aren’t good opportunities for higher education where they live.
BYU-Pathway’s tuition is significantly less than at other schools, and costs for each country are based upon current local economic conditions. By combining academic and spiritual learning, BYU-Pathway inspires students with the confidence to believe they can reach their goals. Additionally, the courses and programs are completely online. All students need is access to a computer and the internet to participate–truly making this program worldwide.
BYU-Pathway students typically begin their higher-education journey with PathwayConnect. PathwayConnect is a one-year low-cost program that prepares students to start or finish a degree by building their spiritual confidence and teaching them foundational academic skills. Non-native English speakers participate in additional language activities to improve their English. After completing PathwayConnect, students are encouraged to continue their education by earning certificates and degrees online for the same cost. In partnership with BYU-Pathway, BYU-Idaho Online accepts students’ PathwayConnect course credits as part of their degree.
In the lives of its students and alumni around the world, BYU-Pathway demonstrates the eternal blessings of education and provides hope where it didn’t previously exist. Donations are enabling BYU-Pathway to improve and expand its educational offerings and provide more opportunities to deserving and able students everywhere in the world.
