Students who HAVE enrolled for ISU classes during a 2-year time period may register for classes without re-applying to the university. However, some departments may have more restrictive requirements, and admission may be valid for only a particular semester or year. Students should contact departments to determine these more restrictive requirements.
Those students sitting out a semester or more are required to provide the Admissions Office with their current address, telephone number, major, and official transcript from other colleges they may have attended.
NOTE: It is critical that students submit the necessary admission documents early so they may be cleared to pre-register for classes early. Those submitting application materials late cannot be assured of registration for the current semester.
Students who previously Applied for Admission and Do NOT Enroll. Students accepted for admission to Idaho State University who do not attend their first semester will be allowed to enroll the next semester without re-applying. Acceptance is granted for a two (2) semester time frame, however, students MUST complete an admissions update form or call the Office of Admissions to provide them with current information prior to being allowed to enroll for classes, including official transcripts from all other colleges or universities attended.
Students who have either applied for admission or who have been accepted WILL be required to complete a new application for admission if they have not enrolled for classes at ISU for two (2) year period. An additional application fee will be assessed to students who have NOT taken classes at ISU for five (5) or more years. Those who have attended other colleges/universities will be required to submit all official transcripts to the Office of Admissions.
The classification of a transient student is valid for one semester or two summer sessions only. This is because of the demands made by employers, bureaus of occupational licenses and teacher certification divisions of the respective state departments of education to have the students entire academic record consolidated on a regular transcript form for purposes of future reference, counseling and issuing of licenses or certificates. Admitted as a transient student will be entered in the memo space of the transcript.
If at the end of the semester or summer session the student wishes to remain at ISU to work toward a degree, s/he must then furnish complete transcripts and test scores for admission as a regular student.
High school students may make application as non-degree seeking with the written permission from their principal or counselor, approval from the instructor of the college course/courses they wish to enroll as well as the written signature of the Associate Director for Admissions and Enrollment Programs. High school students meeting the necessary requirements will be allowed to enroll on a part-time (1-7 credits) basis.
A student being admitted to non-degree seeking student status must (1) Supply proof that they are a high school graduate or have completed the GED; (2) understand that acceptance in this category does not constitute acceptance to a degree-granting program; (3) have sufficient educational background to qualify for the course or courses in which enrollment is sought; (4) accept personal responsibility for the applicability of credits earned while registered in this category; and (5) understand that students in the non-degree seeking category cannot be considered for federal or state financial aid.
Any deviations from the admission procedures listed will be acted upon by the Associate Director for Admissions and/or the Admissions Committee. Students enrolled full-time in an Applied Technology program at ISU may also enroll for a maximum of 6 academic credits as a non-degree seeking student.
Transfer of Credits. Students completing two- or three-year advanced degrees from other countries may be considered for undergraduate admission with possible advanced standing of up to two years (60 credits) or up to three years (90 credits). Any credits advanced to the student have been determined acceptable based on a course by course analysis after official transcripts and a syllabus have been submitted that describes the individual courses and programs of study for the student. Educational guides endorsed by AACRA (American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers) are used during the transfer credit evaluation process. Students who do not agree with the credits awarded may of their own cost send their educational documents to a Foreign Credentials Evaluation Service and additional credits MAY be awarded at ISU.

International students are confronted with a different circumstance than resident students or even out-of-state students. These students need to supplement their personal belongings with purchases after they arrive on campus. In addition, international students may be required to arrange for their own meals during vacations when residence hall cafeterias are closed.
NOTE: It is critical that students submit necessary admission documents early so they may be cleared to pre-register for classes early. Those submitting application materials late cannot be assured of registration for the current semester. An official transcript is one that is sent direclty from the college/university to the office of Admissions at Idaho State University. Upon arrival at Idaho State University, International students should contact the International Student Clerk in the Admissions Office on the second floor of the Museum Building, or Dr. Ray Wallace, International Student Advisor, in the Hypostyle (located between the Museum and Student Union Building, Office #384). Students bringing draft checks must have them cleared with the Office of Financial Affairs prior to enrolling. Students should arrive on campus early so that they can find suitable housing, pre-register for classes, and participate in New Student Orientation.
