2. It’s affordable

Since you wouldn’t have to attend school on a campus as a BYU-Pathway student, you would only pay for your courses. This allows you to participate from anywhere in the world at a low price. Also, if you complete PathwayConnect first, you get to keep the same reduced tuition rate you paid in PathwayConnect throughout your online degree program.
