Write directly to the Office of Admissions for required admission forms and accompanying instructions. The following information applies to undergraduate students applying for admission to academic programs for Fall 1994 through Summer 1995. Please refer to the School of Applied Technology regarding admission to applied technology programs. Graduate students should refer to the Graduate Catalog.
Current undergraduate courses, degree requirements and academic programs are listed in the Undergraduate Catalog, which is published each March for the upcoming academic year. Upon admission to the University, new students receive a coupon that may be exchanged at the Bookstore for a complimentary copy of the Catalog. Be sure to keep your catalog as a reference tool for your educational planning. Each student needs to complete degree requirements as outlined in any one catalog in effect during his/her dates of registration. The Class Schedule, available free of charge from the Registrar's Office, lists the classes to be offered each semester and describes telephone pre-registration procedures.
Students should hear from the Admissions Office approximately 3-4 weeks following their application to Idaho State University. Once all required documents and materials are received, copies are forwarded to the academic college of the student's major where an advisor is assigned. Those who are undecided about a major and those requiring academic assistance are assigned an advisor from the Supplemental Academic Advising Center.
Students submitting an application for admission to Idaho State University indicate an intent to major in a specific academic program. Acceptance to the university does NOT mean acceptance into the student's major program. Many departments have admission requirements that must be met prior to the student being formally accepted into their declared major. Students are encouraged to contact academic departments early to learn about admission requirements into specific programs.
NOTE: It is critical that students submit necessary admission documents early so they may be cleared to pre-register ahead of time. Pre-registration programs are held in early spring and summer for accepted students. Those submitting application materials late cannot be assured of registration for the current semester.
