Idaho Needs Connectivity Leading University Distance Education

The INCLUDE Program provides increased opportunities for Idaho high school students in rural communities to participate in select ISU Dual Enrollment classes. By using cutting-edge distance learning technology that duplicates as closely as possible an in-person college classroom experience, students don't have to leave their school buildings regardless of rurality.

The equipment and technology are provided to high schools at no cost to them, thanks to the generous donations from three rural internet providers - Direct Communications, Blackfoot Communications, and ATC Communications - and a grant from the USDA.  Eligible high school students may enroll in ISU's INCLUDE Dual Enrollment classes and earn college credits at no cost through the Fast Forward program.

In addition to high school students, community members may also utilize the distance learning equipment to earn their ISU degree, facilitate professional advancement, or pursue subjects of interest.  The INCLUDE Program is currently operational in 10 Idaho high schools and further equip high school administrators and teachers across Idaho in their efforts to provide Dual Enrollment classes to their students.
