A one-time 5 percent late fee will be applied to any outstanding balance not paid within seven days of the first day of class. Additionally, students who do not pay their current balance by the end of the semester will not be permitted to enroll in future semesters.

What if I can't pay my Pathway tuition?

If payment is not made by the end of the semester, students will be withdrawn from Pathway and will be unable to continue the program. To rejoin Pathway, students must first pay the outstanding balance, including late fees, and then reapply to the program.

Does Pathway offer payment plans?

Can I pay for the entire year of Pathway upfront?

No, Pathway does not offer an option to pay for all three semesters upfront. Tuition is paid on a semester-by-semester basis.



Financial Aid

Is financial aid available to Pathway students?

United States

Pathway students in the United States do not qualify for U.S. federal financial aid because Pathway is not a degree-granting program. Pathway students also do not qualify for BYU-Idaho scholarships. Students are encouraged to search for private scholarships if they need financial assistance.

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-seeking program after Pathway.

International

Pathway students do not qualify for BYU-Idaho scholarships. International Pathway students may consider searching for private scholarships or learning more about the Perpetual Education Fund (PEF) as a possible option to gain financial assistance.



Refunds

What is Pathway's tuition refund policy?

Students who withdraw from Pathway before the payment deadline will receive a full refund. Students who withdraw after the first week of classes and before 60 percent of the semester has passed will receive a pro-rated refund. The Pathway Home Office calculates the percentage refunded based on when the student withdraws from Pathway. No refund will be issued after 60 percent of a semester has passed. In addition, Pathway reserves the right to not grant a refund to a student who is suspended or expelled.



Taxes

Will my participation in Pathway affect the taxes I pay?

Possibly. Each country has a separate set of laws. As a result of a student's Pathway participation, taxes or other payments may be owed to his/her local government. It is each student's responsibility to understand those laws and comply.
