3.1 Course Registration Process
“Course registration” refers to the process students take to enroll in courses. Oftentimes, “course registration” and “application” are mistaken as the same process, but that is not the case. Rather, “application” refers to the process of formally applying for admission to PathwayConnect; and course registration occurs after a student is admitted.
1st Semester Students
Registration occurs at the time students accept their offer of admission on pathway.lds.org. PathwayConnect’s enrollment system will register the student for the BYU-Idaho courses required to complete the first semester of PathwayConnect. Registration for institute courses occurs at the local level directly with the institute.
2nd & 3rd Semester Students
Continuing students will be prompted to register for second- and third-semester courses when they log in at pathway.lds.org at specified times during their first and second semesters. Registration for institute occurs at the local level directly with the institute.
The course registration deadline is 20 days before the start of classes. Students will be notified by email of upcoming registration deadlines. Students who attempt to register late will be instructed to wait for the next available semester.
Students may be able to register for courses after the enrollment deadline in rare circumstances that are beyond the students’ control. Such situations include, but are not limited to: natural disaster that prevented an individual from registering, a documented technical issue on PathwayConnect’s part, or a full-time missionary who returned home after the registration deadline. All exception requests are reviewed by Pathway Support on a case-by-case basis.
