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.
