BYU-Pathway Worldwide students pursuing a degree program may be eligible for various forms of financial aid.
U.S. Federal Financial Aid
Degree-seeking students who are citizens of the United States, may be eligible for U.S. federal student aid.
Because the degrees offered through BYU-Pathway Worldwide are granted by and accredited through BYU-Idaho, BYU-Idaho’s school code (OPE ID) 00162500 must be used in the application. For complete eligibility guidelines and information on financial aid, please visit BYU-Idaho Financial Aid and view available financial aid options for BYU-Pathway Worldwide students.
Program Applicability Requirements
Students will only receive federal financial aid for courses required for their declared associate or bachelor’s degree. Students can receive federal financial aid for certificate courses that fill major or elective credit requirements for their associate or bachelor’s degree.
Federal Student Loan
In order to get federal student loans, students need to enroll in at least six program-applicable credits per semester. (These are courses required for a student’s declared program.)
To apply, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Federal student loans are awarded based upon information provided on the FAFSA as well as the number of program-applicable credits a student is registered for. Repayment is required on all federal student loans. A small origination fee will be deducted from each federal loan disbursement.
Federal Pell Grant
Pell Grants are usually awarded to qualifying undergraduate students who have not earned a bachelor’s or professional degree. Pell Grant amounts are determined based upon the information provided on the FAFSA as well as the number of program-applicable credits a student is registered for.
To apply, students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students need to enroll in 12 or more program-applicable credits to receive the full award for a term. Some students may qualify to receive a prorated Pell Grant if they are registered in fewer than 12 program-applicable credits. Federal Pell Grants do not require repayment.
BYU-Pathway Worldwide and its partner BYU-Idaho do not currently offer scholarships for online degree-seeking students. Students may search and apply for private scholarships that fit their individual needs and qualifications.
