Alternate Pathway Request Form

Definition of Alternate Pathways:

An Alternate Pathway program is one in which the student can complete his or her program without
the need for face-to-face, daytime (M-F), Springfield course work. As such these programs are
comprised of online, evening/weekend, off-campus, and iCourses-often as a combination of these
delivery methods.

Rationale for Alternate Pathways Program Codes: Strategic plan support and monitoring student
progress.

  • Alternate Pathways Program Codes assist the University’s long-range plan (Access to
    Success, Objective 1, Measure 2: total number of alternative pathways by program category).
  • Definition of alternate pathways program codes allow for the identification, monitoring of,
    and outcome reporting of students pursuing a Missouri State University degree through
    these pathways.
