One of the benefits students say they receive the most is increased confidence. BYU-Pathway helps students build confidence by teaching core academic and life skills in a supportive environment. They also promote friendship and camaraderie through interactions with other students.

It was almost 30 years since I had been in a classroom, and I was terrified. ...I thought I wasn’t smart enough, I had forgotten too much, and it was going to be too hard. [BYU-Pathway] gave me the confidence that I can do this.

More than anything, BYU-Pathway helps students cultivate individual spiritual growth. Students build testimonies of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ and are encouraged to live by its principles.

[BYU-Pathway is] not the degree; it’s what it’s taught me. It’s taught me to be a more complete disciple of Jesus Christ. I know how … to love differently and to serve differently and to learn differently. It has increased my capacity to be a disciple of the Savior. I know this program is heaven-sent.

BYU-Pathway offers a unique way to build a degree that teaches marketable skills early-on and positions students to get a job long before graduation. Students do this by earning three skills-based certificates that stack into a bachelor’s degree.

Before I joined BYU-Pathway, I’d never even dreamt to be holding such positions at big companies. If I have climbed so much in my first year, how much more will I climb when I’ve finished my degree?
