Wondering if you should begin with some university preparation courses through PathwayConnect? Or jump right into your degree program? Use this tool to see which starting point might be best for you.

Based on your responses, we recommend that you start with PathwayConnect.

PathwayConnect is offered at a reduced cost and lasts one year — and all of the courses you take will count toward a BYU-Idaho online degree program.

PathwayConnect is great because it is low cost, it helps students get adjusted to taking online university courses, it provides additional support through weekly gatherings with other students, and so much more.

However, you are welcome to consider skipping PathwayConnect if you feel you are academically and financially prepared to start immediately into your degree program without the additional resources provided through PathwayConnect.

Based on your responses, you might consider starting directly into an online degree program (bypassing PathwayConnect).

This option is typically best for students who have taken university courses recently and are confident in their ability to succeed in a university degree program.

However, you are also welcome to consider starting with PathwayConnect, which is offered at a reduced cost and helps students prepare fully for university studies.
