Our Programs

Among the Best

The AACSB represents “the longest serving global association dedicated to advancing management education worldwide,” and accredits less than five percent of the 16,000 schools granting business degrees in the world.  The College of Business’ accounting program is also separately accredited as one of only 175 schools holding both accounting and business accreditation, ranking ISU’s College of Business in the top two percent of business schools worldwide.

An Affordable Education

Tuition Lock

At Idaho State University you can avoid annual increases in the cost of tuition encountered at all other Idaho colleges and universities. With a tuition lock from ISU, what you pay when you enroll as a first-time college freshman is what you'll pay for up to four years.

Discounted Out-of-State Tuition

Want to go out of state but don't want to pay out-of-state tuition? If you are a resident of one of the listed 14 western states, you may qualify for the Western Undergraduate Exchange at ISU. This scholarship, available for freshmen and transfer students, could save you more than $35,000 over four years.

College and University Scholarships

The College of Business and ISU award more than $10 million annually in student scholarships. Through the Bengal Online Scholarship System (BOSS), students have the opportunity to easily apply for multiple scholarships at the college or university level.

A Hands-On Education

Volunteer Income Tax Assistance

As part of the VITA program, students have the opportunity to prepare taxes for low-income families and other students- gaining real experience in tax preparation. The College of Business’s VITA program consistently files more returns per volunteer than most other schools of a similar size and student participation, filing upwards of 320 returns per two-month window.

DA Davidson Investment Fund

Each year, DA Davidson & Co contributes $50,000 to a stock portfolio for student teams in 19 different schools to manage. Students spend the semester managing and monitoring the funds. Schools that generate a positive return on the investment also get to share in the profits.

Collaborative Research and Writing

This unique course gives students the opportunity to research, write and publish a book on the history of local and influential businesses. Honors students from all colleges on campus can participate in the project, gaining invaluable experience and finishing as published authors. So far, students have researched, written, and published three books with Arcadia Publishing in South Carolina.
