Returned Missionary Scholarship

BYU-Pathway Worldwide is pleased to offer a 25% tuition discount for returned missionaries! Recipients will receive the tuition discount for the one-year PathwayConnect program. To view standard tuition rates in your country, visit our tuition web page .

BYU-Pathway offers online higher education to more than 50,000 students in 150 countries. PathwayConnect is an affordable, one-year, online program that helps people start or return to university studies. After completing PathwayConnect , students can go on to earn an online certificate and degree through BYU-Idaho, presented and coordinated by BYU-Pathway Worldwide. (Note: The tuition discount does not apply to online certificate and degree programs.)

Returned Missionary


The tuition discount is available to returning missionaries, including early release and service missionaries, who meet the PathwayConnect admission requirements and:

  • Have returned from a full-time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the last 60 months
  • Pass an English language assessment as part of the application to PathwayConnect

Applicants who do not score high enough on the placement test to qualify for PathwayConnect, but who have received a rating of intermediate-mid or higher on the English OPIc exam within the last year, may submit their certificate for consideration to BYU-Pathway Support.

Applicants who do not score high enough on either assessment should enroll in EnglishConnect , a church-sponsored, low-cost English-language learning program designed to prepare students for PathwayConnect.

For additional information, contact BYU-Pathway Support. Apply to PathwayConnect now to automatically receive 25% off your PathwayConnect tuition!
