* Applicants who do not score high enough on the English language 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 low-cost English-language learning program designed to prepare students for BYU-Pathway Worldwide.
