It starts here
We recognize that we live in a constantly changing world with challenges unique to our times. Your educational experience has to respond to the changes in our world and prepare you to face any situation—professionally and personally. At Bay Path University, our commitment is to educate you as a whole student. This is done by integrating a solid academic experience that emphasizes ethical behavior, global citizenship, an appreciation of health and wellness, a firm grounding in financial literacy, and the importance of civic engagement. 

Affordable private education
Bay Path provides a comprehensive program of need- and merit-based financial aid in the form of federal-, state-, and College-based assistance. Bay Path works for you—100% of students who apply receive some form of financial aid. You may qualify for a merit scholarship worth up to $22,500 a year. 

Education that matters
Internships, practicums, live case studies, special on-site projects, and study abroad: at Bay Path, we believe opportunities like these are what provide you with practical and relevant experiences that add value to classroom learning while building your résumé and credentials. Ultimately, our goal is to enrich your education and enhance your ability to succeed in graduate school and your career.

Expand your boundaries
Bay Path believes that acquiring greater international awareness and a deeper understanding of other languages, cultures, and peoples is done by studying in a foreign country. This is key in preparing you to meet the personal and professional challenges of living and working in a global world. With our study abroad program, you can spend a semester in countries such as Australia, Italy, England, or Ireland. Bay Path also offers a domestic exchange program with Chaminade University of Honolulu and American University in our nation’s capital. 

Bay Path coordinates cultural enrichment trips several times during the year as well, including trips to Boston and New York. In addition, Bay Path arranges the Capitals of the World trip during spring break, which takes students, alumni, faculty, and friends to major cities around the world, including Athens, London, Rome, and Paris.

The honors advantage
At Bay Path, we offer an honors program to match your interests. Honors students are able to take advantage of an honors scholarship in addition to the merit scholarship received upon acceptance. A close-knit community, honors students enjoy thought-provoking seminars, small classes, leadership opportunities, and community service experiences that are valuable for career direction or graduate school.
