How to Achieve Direct Admission to Idaho Public Colleges and Universities

University_of_Idaho_Administration_Building_-_east_side_(cropped)Direct Admissions proactively admits Idaho public high school seniors to the state’s public higher education institutions based on each student’s grade point average (GPA) and SAT/ACT score.
***
A Board-approved benchmark GPA and college entrance exam score will determine a student’s admission eligibility.  Students at or above the benchmark will be pre-accepted to Idaho’s eight public universities and colleges: Boise State University, Idaho State University, the University of Idaho, Lewis-Clark State College, Eastern Idaho Technical College, College of Southern Idaho, College of Western Idaho and North Idaho College.
***
Students not meeting the benchmark will be admitted to the six public higher education institutions that offer certificate or associate degree programs: Idaho State University College of Technology, Lewis-Clark State College, Eastern Idaho Technical College, College of Southern Idaho, College of Western Idaho and North Idaho College.
***
Each fall, high school seniors and their parents or guardians will be notified of their acceptance and encouraged to research the academic and professional-technical programs offered throughout the state’s community colleges and four-year institutions. Students will be required to complete an admission application to the institution of their choice as a next step in the admissions process.  Students can apply to one or more of Idaho’s colleges or universities at once, and for free , using Apply Idaho . Apply Idaho opens October 1st.
***
Regardless of which letter a student receives, they still have the option to apply to any or all of Idaho’s public colleges and universities under normal deadlines and be considered alongside all other in-state and out-of-state applicants.
