    If I’m in PathwayConnect right now, do I need to wait to apply to the college until I’ve completed the program?
    You can apply to Ensign College before completing the program. Ensign College will verify PathwayConnect completion before beginning the semester you wish to start. Be sure to send updated transcripts once you have completed your Pathway certificate.

    What if a Pathway Scholarship recipient would prefer to get a different campus scholarship, instead of the Pathway Scholarship?
    If a student wants other institutional scholarships that may be a higher dollar amount than the Pathway Scholarship, they can request removal from the PathwayConnect group. To do this, students must speak with Enrollment Services by calling 801-524-8145. If a student requests removal from the Pathway scholarship group, they will not be eligible for that scholarship again. The scholarship office recommends this option for students who are single parents.
