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.
Fall Semester: August 1
Spring Semester: December 1
Summer Sessions: Open
NOTICE TO ALL STUDENTS: ALL REQUIRED ADMISSIONS DOCUMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED PRIOR TO ENROLLMENT
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 for accepted students. Those submitting application materials late cannot be assured of registration for the current semester.
The following college entrance, core subject requirements were established by the State Board of Education and were implemented the Fall 1989 semester and thereafter. Students must meet these minimum credit requirements with an average GPA of 2.0 to be eligible for Regular Admission.

Level 2: Students will be admitted to Level 2 if their predicted first semester ISU grade point average is 2.00 or higher.
Students entering at this level are not restricted in number of credit hours or selection of courses. They are required to take English and mathematics placement tests, and meet with an academic advisor in their chosen major prior to registration.
Level 1: Students will be admitted to Level 1 if their predicted first semester ISU grade point average is less than 2.00.
Level 1 students may not enroll for more than 13 credits per semester. They will meet with an assigned academic advisor who will help them plan a schedule of classes that meets their needs and utilizes support services that will help them to be successful. They may not register for courses until 1) they have taken mathematics and English placement tests, and 2) course schedules are approved by their assigned academic advisor. Students whose placement test scores indicate deficiencies in mathematics or English must enroll for the appropriate courses in these areas during their first or second semesters. Students admitted at Level 1 who complete at least four college level courses (remedial classes do not count), a minimum of 12 credit hours, and have a college grade point average of 2.00 or better at ISU will be allowed to register as Level 2 students in subsequent semesters.
Students NOT meeting the minimum credits required in the high school core subject areas with a 2.0 GPA for regular admission still may be considered for provisional admission to ISU by satisfying one of the following criteria:
b. A weighted combination of grades in high school core subjects completed and ACT Composite Score or SAT (Math + Verbal) Total Score that predict a 2.00 GPA at ISU.
GED students who are younger than 18 years old must submit a petition to the Admissions Committee to be given consideration for admission to the university.
NOTE: Students not meeting requirements under item #2 may be considered for provisional admission by petitioning the admissions committee.
Students not meeting thee ISU predicted 2.00 GPA requirement for provisional admission under items 1 and 2 may deserve further consideration for admission because of special circumstances, e.g., disadvantaged and minority status, delayed entry, returning veteran, or talented student wishing to enter college early. Students must submit a petition to the Admissions Committee (refer to the section below entitled, "Admissions Committee"), explaining why they feel they can be successful at ISU even though they were unable to meet university admission requirements. Letters of support from counselors, teachers, etc., on the students behalf are encouraged. Under this category, the student must demonstrate to the Admissions Committee evidence of suitable academic preparation to succeed in college level work.
Provisional admission is not a probationary status. Students provisionally accepted are not restricted from being considered for scholarships and have the rights and privileges granted all students.
Admission Requirements Applicable To 1. Students must submit an All GED students application for admission. 2. Students must submit a All GED students $20 (non-refundable) application fee. 3. Submit official GED All GED students scores prior to scheduled enrollment. Successful GED scores are defined as an average of 45 on all tests, with no individual score lower than 40. 4.

Must take the All GED students Computerized Placement Exams to determine appropriate placement into math & English writing classes.*Students completing the GED prior to May 1989 or who are 21 or older when they enroll are exempt from taking the ACT/SAT exam.
Students who have been educated through a home school or correspondence based program of study must complete the GED and are subject to the above admission requirements.
Students may be accepted for admission on a conditional basis provided they are determined to be on track to meeting the college entrance core subject requirements for admission based on an evaluation of their official six- or seven-semester high school transcript. Students may pre-register for classes while under this category. Final acceptance to the university for those granted conditional status is contingent on meeting all requirements once the Office of Admissions has received the complete, final official high school transcript following graduation.
Note: Idaho State University reserves the right to NOT accept students graduating from high school who have completed a remedial oriented course of study. Students must demonstrate reasonable ability to be successful in a college level curriculum.
Under Idaho State University scholastic probation/dismissal policy transfer students who have been academically dismissed from another college or university must layout a minimum of one semester of enrollment following a first dismissal and one year following second and subsequent dismissals. The student may then petition the Admissions Committee to be given consideration for admission.
ALL REQUIRED ADMISSIONS DOCUMENTS MUST BE RECEIVED PRIOR TO ENROLLMENT
Students having a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 may be admitted to the appropriate class standing upon prior presentation of official credentials. Students with less than a 2.0 cumulative GPA for previous college work are required to submit a petition to the Admissions Committee and may be considered for probationary admission.
Transfer credits will not be evaluated until the student has applied for admission and furnished the Office of Admissions with official transcripts.
NOTE: It is critical that students submit necessary admission documents early so they may be cleared to pre-register early. Those submitting application materials late cannot be assured of registration for the current semester.
The purpose of the Admissions Committee at Idaho State University is to provide new freshmen and transfer students who have not met State Board of Education and institutional admission requirements the opportunity to make a formal appeal to the university to be given further consideration for admission. Students are required to submit a written petition to the Committee explaining any circumstances that may have occurred that did not allow them to achieve academically in a satisfactory manner in high school or at another college/university. They may also include letters of recommendation from counselors, teachers, etc., on the student's behalf and any other supplemental information that would demonstrate their ability to be successful in college level courses at ISU.
After carefully reviewing the student's petition, letters of support and any additional documentation, the Admissions Committee determines whether there is sufficient tangible evidence of suitable academic preparation for the student to be successful in a college curriculum. If the committee decides to admit the student, it establishes conditions and recommendations with which the student must comply in order to enhance his/her ability to succeed at ISU after enrollment. Educational options for remedial assistance are presented to those not accepted so that they may be re-considered for possible later enrollment when improvement in basic skills areas can be demonstrated.
The Admissions Committee is comprised of representatives from the university including a faculty person, professional staff from the Counseling and Testing Center, Student Services, the Center of Services for Students with Disabilities, Athletic Department, Enrollment Planning and Academic Services, Supplemental Academic Advising, and Registration and Records.
Students not accepted to ISU by the Admissions Committee may request a personal interview as a final appeal to be given consideration for admission to the university.
It is the State Board of Education's intent that this policy will assist students as they transfer between institutions of higher education in the process of completing their educational agendas. In addition, the Board believes that this policy will provide the public institutions of higher education with the guidelines necessary to carry out their mission and service function to students so that they can successfully transfer between institutions without penalty.
To facilitate the transfer of students within the state of Idaho, the state's four (4) year college and universities, including Lewis-Clark State College, Boise State University, Idaho State University, and the University of Idaho, and Idaho's two (2) year colleges, including College of Southern Idaho, North Idaho College and Treasure Valley Community College from Ontario, Oregon, shall individually and jointly honor the terms of this statewide articulation policy.
Effective in 1987, students completing the requirements for the Associate of Arts (A.A.) or Associate of Science (A.S.) degrees at CSI, NIC, and TVCC will be considered as satisfying the lower division general education core requirements at the four (4) year state institutions in Idaho. This policy does not exempt students from lower division courses that may be required in the students major.
Students graduating prior to 1987 from CSI, NIC, and TVCC with A.A. or A.S. degrees are subject to the institutional articulation agreements approved in 1982 which stipulate that all lower division general education requirements are fulfilled with the exception of the completion of either an additional ISU English 201 - 3 credit class OR a sophomore level Intermediate or Advanced English composition class for 3 credits at their respective institutions. Associate degrees completed by students prior to the institutional articulation agreement in 1982 must be equivalent to current A.A. or A.S. programs to be eligible for transfer consideration under the provisions of these agreements. For information about associate degrees earned prior to 1982 at the above institutions and their more contemporary equivalents you may call the Office of Admissions at (208) 236-2475.
Students transferring from Ricks College to Idaho State University who have earned the Associate of Arts and Sciences (A.A.S.) degree through December 1994 qualify for transfer consideration under the provisions of the ISU - Ricks College articulation agreement. This allows for all lower division general education requirements to be fulfilled except Goal 1, English, which may be completed by taking the ISU English 201 3-credit course OR Ricks College English 211 3-credit course. Prior to 1975-76, what is now the A.A.S. degree at Ricks was called the Associate Degree. Students earning this degree who are transferring to ISU are eligible for transfer under the institutional agreement. Those earning their A.A.S. degree in 1995 on and who have completed state core classes in Math and Communications are subject to the Statewide Articulation Agreement that specifies all lower division general education requirements are fulfilled. Those who have the A.A.S. but have not met the state core class requirements in communications and math must complete Goal #2, Speech, and Goal #3, Mathematics.
Transfer students from Ricks College, CSI, NIC, and TVCC who have NOT earned their associate degrees but HAVE completed the general education core courses will not be required to complete additional lower division general education core courses. However, these students must obtain certification of such completion. Certification of successful completion of the lower division general education core for students is the responsibility of the transferring institution's Registration and Records Office.
This transfer policy will provide for the fulfillment of all general education, lower division core requirements only. It is not intended to meet departmental requirements or specific course requirements of unique or professional programs (e.g., engineering, pharmacy, business, nursing, etc.). Students who plan to transfer to unique or professional programs should consult with their advisors and make early contact with a program representative from the institution to which they intend to transfer.
Transfer students from Ricks College, CSI, NIC, and TVCC who have NOT completed the Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Science (A.S.), Associate of Arts and Sciences (A.A.S.), or appropriate older associate degrees, or the general education core courses from these institutions, will not come under the provisions of this articulation policy. These students will have their credits evaluated on a course by course basis to determine individual general educational goals fulfilled.
A maximum total of 70 lower division credit hours or one-half of the total credits required for a student's intended baccalaureate degree, which ever is greater, will normally be accepted for transfer from accredited community and junior colleges including Ricks College, CSI, NIC, and TVCC. Remedial and certain religious education classes will not transfer, thus reducing the number of total credits transferring to ISU. Vocational courses are evaluated on an individual, institutional basis for transfer consideration.
Note: Students transferring from Ricks College, CSI, NIC, and TVCC to Idaho State University are subject to the Articulation Agreements in effect at the time they completed their associate degrees.
Transfer students should be aware that graduation requirements for certain majors may include specific courses or additional credit hours in courses normally associated with General Education Requirements. In such instances, careful selection may enable the student to progress more efficiently by satisfying a General Education Requirement and a similar program requirement with the same course.
Students transferring to Idaho State University with fewer than 58 credits from other institutions (excluding those eligible for transfer credit consideration under the provisions of the Statewide Articulation Agreement or the Ricks College, ISU Institutional Articulation Agreement) must complete the General Education Requirements as previously stated. Work taken at other institutions is reviewed on a course-by-course basis to determine which ISU General Education Goals are met. Goals not met with transferred course work must be satisfied by ISU courses listed as meeting those goals.
Students transferring to Idaho State University with 58 or more credits from other institutions and working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree must satisfy General Education Goals 1, 2, and 3. In transferring, students may consider Goals 4 and 5 as a single eight hour natural/physical science requirement, and Goals 6, 7, and 8 as a single nine-hour humanities requirement. Goals 9, 10 A-B, 11 and 12 may be considered as a twelve-hour Social Science requirement. Those who opt to fulfill Goal 10B also must take six credits from 9, 11, and/or 12. Transfer students seeking a Bachelor of Arts degree in the College of Arts and Sciences must complete Goals 10A and 10B and six more credit hours in goals 9, 11, and/or 12. Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Applied Technology, and Bachelor of Business Administration:
Students transferring to Idaho State University with 58 or more credits from other institutions and working toward a Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Applied Technology, or Bachelor of Business Administration degree must satisfy Goals 1, 2, and 3. In transferring, students may consider Goals 4 and 5 as a single eight-hour natural/physical science requirement and Goals 6, 7, and 8 as a single six-hour humanities requirement. Goals 9, 10 A-B, 11, and 12 may be considered as a nine-hour Social Science requirement. Students pursuing the Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Business Administration degree who opt to fulfill Goal 10B also must take six credits from 9, 11, and/or 12.
Students eligible for transfer credit consideration under the provisions of the Statewide Articulation Agreement or the Ricks College, ISU Articulation Agreement are excluded from the provisions as stated above for students transferring 58 or more credits to ISU.
Courses taken by the transfer student after enrolling at ISU to meet the General Education Requirements for the B.A., B.S., and B.B.A. degrees as stated above must be selected from the unfulfilled goals in those groups.
Students with associate degrees from an accredited institution will follow the transfer credit guidelines for students with 58 or more credits, as stated above, with the exception of those transfer students eligible for transfer consideration under the provisions of the Statewide Articulation Agreement and the Ricks College, ISU Articulation Agreement.
NOTE: Students and advisors should consult with the Registrar or Office of Admissions about additional agreements. (See also the Statewide Articulation and Associate Degree Policy.
Undergraduate, degree-seeking students who have not enrolled for classes at ISU for a 2-year period of time are required to re-apply and submit the following to the Office of Admissions:
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 transcripts 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.
Whenever an applicant for admission or a student (regardless of the program of study or whether full-time or part-time) exhibits behavior which poses a substantial threat to himself/herself or other members of the university community or is disruptive of the educational processes, said student or applicant will be subjected to a special screening process. This process has been formulated as a result of recommendations of a committee of the faculty and students of this institution and will apply to any admission or re-admission request. In the event that the conduct or behavior of the individual or any other member of the university community is disruptive of the educational process of the institution, these procedures shall apply whether the cause of the condition is medical, psychiatric, behavioral, otherwise, or a combination of the above.
Students in good standing from any recognized college or university, who wish to enroll at Idaho State University for the purpose of applying those credits to the college or university last attended, may be admitted as transient students.
Applicants seeking transient student status should obtain the Declaration as a Transient Undergraduate form from the Office of Admissions. In addition, such a student is required to submit an official transcript from the last college attended OR verification from the registrar of that institution that the applicant is a student in good standing at the college. This verification can be made by obtaining the registrar's seal and signature on the lower portion of the declaration form.
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.
The notation 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.
A person may make application as a non-degree seeking student if he/she does not wish to qualify for admission for degree work but to pursue studies for personal edification. Such a student may register part-time (maximum 7 credits a semester) and complete a maximum of 32 undergraduate semester credit hours. Upon completion of 32 semester credit hours, the student must complete regular admission procedures at Idaho State University to enroll for additional degree credits or sign a non-degree waiver to continue as a non-degree seeking student. All admission requirements must be met before the university can assist this student in obtaining a degree. Such a student will be classified as non-degree seeking until all admission requirements are met for classification 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) be 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 classes as non-degree seeking students.
Admission to ISU for international students is dependent upon credentials showing proof of a capacity for an extra margin of performance. The Office of Admissions recognizes there are no such things as equivalents between curricula in any other country and the United States; thus foreign courses must be evaluated in terms of approximations. 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 AACRAO (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 at their own cost send educational documents to a Foreign Credentials Evaluation Service and additional credits MAY be awarded at ISU. Students MAY also petition the academic departments for credit under certain circumstances. English Proficiency:
Students from other countries are required to take and receive a satisfactory score (minimum of 500) on the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language). Successful scores must be submitted to the Admissions Office early so that an admission decision can be made. If the student is transferring from another college or university in the United States, he/she must submit a statement from a qualified official at his/her school regarding English proficiency, or if he/she has completed college level English courses in the United States, grades in these courses will be considered or TOEFL test scores to demonstrate proficiency in English. Arrangements to take the TOEFL examination may be made by writing directly to: TOEFL Educational Test Service, Campus Box 592, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, U.S.A. Financial Statement:
All international students must submit written proof that they are financially able to support themselves while attending Idaho State University. An official statement of financial support from a sponsor along with an attached bank statement will serve as proof of the students financial ability to meet his/her educational costs. The designated sponsor must release funds to the student when needed to pay for expenses as indicated on the financial statement. Refer to estimate of costs. International students receiving athletic scholarships from ISU must have the Athletic Department submit written verification of such a financial award. Idaho State University reserves the right to require financial deposits of students from countries where there have been problems with the release of funds for educational purposes. Annual Costs of Full-time Attendance at Idaho State University (International Students):
Expenses Applied Tech Academic *Tuition and Fees: New Student $ 8,750 $ 7,942 *Books and Supplies $ 600 $ 600 Room and Board $ 4,132 $ 4,132 **Medical Insurance $ 360 $ 360 Misc. Living Expenses $ 1,500 $ 1,500 ***Totals: $ 15,342 $14,534
Note: Summer School fees were calculated for six (6) credits. Costs are subject to change.
Married students accompanied by spouse and children must provide additional funds for them.
*Some academic and most Applied Technology programs require additional tool or class costs. Students need to contact individual departments or programs for these costs.
** Students should have the necessary funds to purchase medical insurance for themselves and their family. Costs for medical services provided while in the U.S. are NOT covered by the State of Idaho or the Federal Government.
***The above prices are based on the 1995/1996 Academic year and are subject to change. The State Board of Education for Idaho has consistently increased non-resident tuition and fees 5%-10% per year. 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. Transfer Verification Report:
International students who have attended any other college or university in the United States are required to have the Transfer Verification Report completed by the official International Student Advisor from their previous institutions. The form should be submitted to the Office of Admissions along with a copy of the students I-20. Information in this report and the I-20 will help verify the applicants status with Immigration and Naturalization Services. Applications:
All international student applications for admission must be received by June 1 for fall semester, November 1 for spring semester, and March 1 for the summer session. The following additional items are needed:
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 directly 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.
