PathwayConnect is a low-cost educational opportunity that combines online courses with local gatherings. Participants gain valuable skills that will serve them throughout their lives and in pursuing a college degree. As a program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, students will also receive the spiritual benefits of a gospel-incorporated education. Successful completion of PathwayConnect allows students the opportunity to pursue a BYU-Idaho degree online.
Through BYU-Pathway Worldwide, BYU-Idaho provides an affordable, flexible way for students to earn certificates and degrees online*. (BYU-Pathway provides the programs, services, and support; BYU-Idaho grants the degree.)
Certificates and degrees are offered in the following areas:
- Family Studies
- Professional Studies
Information about all certificates and degrees is available on the BYU-Pathway Worldwide website.
*Degrees are not accredited in any other country, and accreditation is not sought outside the U.S.
After students are accepted to into an online program, they may contact an advisor for additional program planning help by emailing email@example.com.
If you will begin your program after April 2019, please see the list of certificates and degrees on the BYU-Pathway Worldwide website. Students who enrolled and declared a program (listed below) prior to April 2019 may remain in that program. The following programs are not available to new incoming students.
The BYU-Idaho Online Concurrent Enrollment program gives high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to begin earning BYU-Idaho credit while still in high school. Students bound for BYU-Idaho would also have an alternative to taking Advanced Placement or other concurrent enrollment courses that might not fulfill BYU-Idaho's Foundations requirements.
BYU-Pathway Worldwide, including BYU-Idaho Online, has a mission to provide access to higher education wherever the Church is organized. To help fulfill this mission, they are coordinating with local educational institutions to provide additional degree options in select locations to BYU-Pathway students.
