Three-Semester Pathway Program Changes Name to PathwayConnect


The creation of BYU-Pathway Worldwide has prompted a name change for the three-semester Pathway program to avoid confusion between the two. The three-semester, college-preparation program will now be called PathwayConnect.

PathwayConnect will operate the same way it did under its former name — as a one-year bridge that leads students to various certificate and degrees opportunities. All courses, gatherings, and after-Pathway options for students will remain the same.

Managing Director of PathwayConnect, J.D. Griffith said, “Many people have asked if BYU-Pathway Worldwide is just a new name for Pathway, and the answer is no. Although PathwayConnect is a part of BYU-Pathway Worldwide, it is only one of the offerings BYU-Pathway will provide.”

The development of BYU-Pathway Worldwide, including additional programs and offerings, is currently being strategized and will likely take many months.
