C of I Value

Great education, outstanding value!

Many people believe receiving a private, liberal arts education is cost-prohibitive. But earning your degree at The College of Idaho not only will bring you greater career and life success—it also can save you and your family money. Consider:

  • According to the latest IPEDS report, the C of I ranks No. 1 in Idaho for four-year graduation rate. Our students graduate on time, saving money in the process. And they do so while earning a major and three minors through our rigorous PEAK Curriculum.
  • Graduating on time keeps student debt in check. The C of I has Idaho’s lowest percentage of students with debt according to IPEDS, and our average debt per student is second-lowest.
  • Our founding president, Dr. William Judson Boone, once said: “Let them come, let them all come, and we will see what they can do.” IPEDS ranks the C of I No. 1 in Latino student percentage, and with one-third of our enrollment identifying as first-generation college students, we are meeting Dr. Boone’s objective of providing access to all!
  • The C of I ranks No. 4 in the Pacific Northwest among Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine’s list of “America’s Best College Values” and No. 19 nationally for best combination of academic quality and economic value, according to College Factual.
