Congratulations on your enrollment at Idaho State University!

Welcome to our newest Bengals! 

We are so glad that you have made the decision to join our Bengal Family, and we look forward to meeting you in person as soon as possible. 

We understand that your home communities, like ours here at ISU, are experiencing a significant challenge in responding to the current health concerns precipitated by COVID-19. We understand that the uncertainty in our nation is coinciding with the timing of your transition into a new collegiate experience. The faculty and staff of Idaho State University are committed to protecting your health and safety even as we also strive to ensure that student support services like New Student Orientation are still made available to you. 

New Student Programs at ISU support the academic and social transition of undergraduate first-year and transfer students. Our programs consist of two steps: an Online Pre-Orientation followed by a New Student Orientation at each ISU campus. Click on the link below to learn more details about both steps, based on the semester that you will begin at ISU.
