What Career Do You Want to Know More About?

IDVA students have the opportunity to hear from career professionals in the coming months, but we need your help! To begin this feature, we need to know what careers you are interested in exploring. To share your ideas, please complete the survey below. The career with the most requests will be featured first, the one in second place will be the following month, and so on. Unfortunately, we may not be able to get to every career idea suggested.

Additionally, we will be interviewing these career professionals with questions submitted by students. Each month a new survey will be available for you to submit your questions for the upcoming interview. If your question is used in the interview, you will win an IDVA backpack!

Apply Idaho and Direct Admission Letters

Direct Admission letters were sent out to seniors late September. These letters notify students which Idaho colleges and/or universities have accepted them based on their grades and SAT/ACT scores. Parents will receive reminder letters in October. You must apply to these colleges/universities prior to the deadline, February 15, 2019, to keep your seat at your chosen school. There is no application fee if you apply using the Apply Idaho Application.
