MS/DI - How to Apply

Applicants must apply through both the DICAS match and the ISU graduate school.

Eighteen students (10 in Pocatello and 8 in Meridian) are admitted to the program with the April computer match. Two of the interns accepted to the internship in Pocatello will complete their rotations in Twin Falls.
