EARLY REGISTRATION EVENT
Get first pick of Fall 2018 classes
Early Registration is your chance to sign up for fall 2018 classes before anyone else. This event is held April 4-7 on the Pocatello campus for new freshman starting in the fall semester. You'll get an invitation with more information, and you can RSVP for the day to attend that works for you. When you come to Early Registration, you will also:
- Meet with Academic Coaches who will help you through the registration session.
- Access fully open course sections.
- Enjoy personal interactions with faculty and staff from across campus.
- Meet new classmates.
- Take care of some items on your to-do list (get your Bengal Card, tour the housing options, pay for your computer account, and more).
Seating is limited each day, so be sure to RSVP early for the day that works for you. Parents are welcome. There will be a special session for them called, "How to Support Your Student through the First Year," which will cover finances, housing, campus safety, and more.
Attending early registration means you’ll get priority registration.
Early registration dates: April 4–7.

- Look for other outside/local scholarships. Students can view many local/outside scholarships by logging into BOSS and viewing the “external” section under the “opportunities” tab.
CONNECT WITH YOUR ACADEMIC COACH
Your Academic Coach is your one-stop resource to connect you to Idaho State University. Your Academic Coach helps connect you to the resources you need to start strong and stay focused throughout your entire academic career year at ISU. For more information visit the Student Success Center.
Students who take ACAD 1104, the First Year Transition course, enjoy higher GPAs, make stronger connections and are more likely to graduate.
GET THE LAY OF THE LAND
New Student Orientation (NSO) is the first campus event held for you as a new Bengal.
- Meet other new students through Orientation small groups.
- Meet the faculty members and dean of your intended academic program.
- Learn about student services provided to all Bengals.
