Financial Aid

Financial Aid

United States

PathwayConnect students in the United States do not qualify for U.S. federal financial aid because PathwayConnect is not a degree-granting program. PathwayConnect students also do not qualify for BYU-Idaho scholarships. This is one of the reasons PathwayConnect tuition is set so low. Students are encouraged to search for private scholarships if they need financial assistance.

After PathwayConnect, U.S. students who have a high school diploma or equivalent are eligible to apply for U.S. federal financial aid if they enter a degree-granting program through a college or university.
