1. PathwayConnect is Affordable & Flexible
PathwayConnect is a low-cost online program that lasts three semesters, gets you college ready, and allows you to gain marketable skills for the workplace. In no time at all, you can quickly apply to PathwayConnect with the easy-to-use application form. There is no cost to apply, no entrance exams, and no interviews.
Because PathwayConnect is online, you can complete coursework on your time — between work, family life, and personal responsibilities. Just be sure to allow yourself enough time to complete assignments, tests, and quizzes. Sometimes a full workload can seem intimidating, but many students get support in their PathwayConnect gathering groups.
2. Students Meet Face-to-Face Each Week
Throughout your time in PathwayConnect, you have the unique opportunity to work with other PathwayConnect students enrolled in your area.
Every Thursday night, you will attend a gathering. This is the time you meet with the other students to ask questions, discuss the curriculum, and learn from one another through leading discussions. Gatherings are an essential part of the PathwayConnect experience, and it is important that you attend each week.
3. Curriculum is Designed for Your Goals
PathwayConnect gives you the opportunity to have a gospel-based education by incorporating religious principles throughout the curriculum.
Each semester, you will enroll in a different course that gets you college and life-ready: Life Skills, Basic Writing, and Intro to Algebra & Finance. In addition, you will enroll in a religion course. After three semesters, you will have earned 15 credits toward a college degree.
For students that speak English as a second language, PathwayConnect is a great way to improve your English language skills. PathwayConnect’s curriculum is all in English, and speaking English is encouraged at the gatherings.
4. PathwayConnect is a Bridge to Online Degrees
PathwayConnect prepares you to take the insights and skills you have gained and bring them to the real world.
After PathwayConnect, many students continue their education through Brigham Young University-Idaho, earning certificates and degrees completely online. Some students consider a local school, advance in the workplace, or pursue other goals. The opportunities are endless!
