What is the pathway program?

The pathway program at Missouri S&T is a program where students can concurrently enroll in both regular academic credit bearing courses and English language classes.

Students who meet all admission requirements at Missouri University of Science and Technology except English language proficiency are admitted into the pathway program. They take mainstream academic credit bearing courses in their academic department and English language development classes in the Intensive English Program to improve their English language proficiency.

Students admitted into the pathway program can choose any academic courses in their academic degree program during their first semester as long as the total number of credit hours do not exceed the pathway program’s allowable limit.  Pathway Program Academic Enrollment Hours
