About BYU-Pathway Worldwide

BYU-Pathway Worldwide offers online higher education opportunities to students throughout the world, serving more than 70,000 people since 2009. BYU-Pathway offers two main paths — PathwayConnect, and online certificates & degrees from BYU-Idaho.

PathwayConnect is a one-year, low-cost educational program that mixes the flexibility of online academic courses, religious education, and the benefits of weekly face-to-face gatherings with other students. The program helps students develop confidence, become self-reliant, and build leadership experience — all of which enhance students’ prospects for further education, employment, church service, and/or leading and supporting families. Two program versions are available: Standard (for native English speakers) and L (for non-native English speakers). PathwayConnect is currently available in more than 450 locations and 70 countries.

BYU-Idaho Online Certificates & Degrees
Online certificates and degrees are granted by Brigham Young University-Idaho. Students can earn an online certificate and/or degree in two ways. 1) Complete PathwayConnect with a minimum B average (3.0 GPA), or 2) Complete a minimum of 15 on-campus credits at BYU, BYU-Idaho, BYU-Hawaii, or LDS Business College. There are currently more than 30 online programs to choose from.
