Idaho State University Doctor of Physical Therapy (BA or BS/DPT) Cooperative Program

The College of Idaho Cooperative Program in Physical Therapy is an undergraduate-graduate articulation agreement with Idaho State University (ISU). Students will complete all of the requirements for a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree at The College of Idaho, including the prerequisites for entrance into the Idaho State University Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program. Prerequisites overlap significantly with the Health Professions Studies minor under PEAK. Students who complete The College of Idaho portion of this program will receive a BA or BS degree in the major they have completed. Upon completion of the Idaho State University portion of the program, students will earn a Doctor of Physical Therapy from Idaho State University.
Entrance into the Idaho State University program is competitive. Idaho State University has offered at least two admission seats to College of Idaho students each year, but it is possible that more than two College of Idaho students will apply. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0 in all areas of the prerequisite courses, as well as the most recent 60 units of completed course work, and must apply for the Idaho State University program by January of their senior year. Students must meet minimum standards on the GRE or the Miller Analogy Test and complete at least 80 hours of experience, in two different areas of practice, under the supervision of a licensed Physical Therapist, before making application. For a complete description of the Idaho State University program and detailed requirements for admission, see their web site.

Idaho State University Dual Degree Doctoral Program in Pharmacy (BS/PHARM.D.) Cooperative Program Cooperative Program

Idaho State University Dual Degree Doctoral Program in Pharmacy (BS/PHARM.D.) Cooperative Program

The College of Idaho Cooperative Program in Pharmacy is a dual degree program in collaboration with Idaho State University (ISU). Under ordinary circumstances, students will attend The College of Idaho for three years and then enter the Idaho State University Professional Doctor of Pharmacy program (Pharm.D.) for the next four years. When students have successfully completed the first two years of the Idaho State University Doctor of Pharmacy program, they will be granted a Bachelor of Science degree from The College of Idaho. When they successfully complete the final two years of the Doctor of Pharmacy curriculum, they will receive a Pharm.D. from Idaho State University.

Entrance into the ISU program is competitive. ISU has offered up to two admission seats to competitive CI students each year. Applicants must have a minimum average GPA of 3.0 to apply to the program, but the average for admission is 3.65. Applicants must apply to the ISU College of Pharmacy – Doctor of Pharmacy program by the application deadline of February 1 of the year in which they intend to begin the program. Due to the competitive nature of this program, students are strongly advised to pursue a complementary major or course of study along with the program prerequisites.

During their course work at The College of Idaho, students will be required to complete 93 credits, including PEAK minors in Social Sciences/History and Humanities/Fine Arts, in addition to all of the prerequisite courses for the Pharm.D. program. Please note that ISU only accepts a maximum of 8 credits in religion; therefore, the Religion Minor is not a viable option to fulfill the Humanities/Fine Arts PEAK. The combination of the program prerequisites and the ISU professional program will count as the Natural Sciences and Professional Studies PEAKs. Prospective Pharmacy students should consult the Idaho State University Pharmacy web site for the most up-to-date information. The following is a general list of prerequisites subject to revision:

Idaho State University Dual Degree Program in Nursing (BS/BS) Cooperative Program Cooperative Program

Idaho State University Dual Degree Program in Nursing (BS/BS) Cooperative Program

The College of Idaho Cooperative Program in Nursing is a dual degree program in collaboration with Idaho State University (ISU). The program is designed for students to attend The College of Idaho for three years and one semester, and then enter the Idaho State University Accelerated Nursing Program in January of their fourth year. The ISU program, which lasts for 16 months, includes all professional requirements for certification as a Registered Nurse, including all clinical experiences. When students have successfully completed the ISU Accelerated Nursing Program, they will be granted dual Bachelor of Science in Nursing degrees from both The College of Idaho and Idaho State University.

Entrance into the Idaho State University program, as with all nursing programs, is highly competitive. Applicants to ISU's program must have a minimum GPA of 3.5 in all prerequisite courses and in coursework completed at The College of Idaho, with no single grade among the prerequisites below a C. PHI 202 is a required prerequisite which must be completed with a grade of 'C' or better, but is not included in the GPA calculation for admission. Students must also complete the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) during the summer after their junior year. Once a College of Idaho student is admitted to the ISU Nursing Program, he or she must comply with the Department of Nursing student handbook. Students are advised to pursue a complementary major course of study along with the nursing prerequisites (though they do not need to complete the major if they are admitted into ISU's program). The number of positions in the ISU Accelerated Nursing Program is limited. Students who are not accepted into the ISU Accelerated Nursing Program during their senior year may complete a standard degree program at The College of Idaho, and then reapply to the ISU Nursing Program for entrance in January following graduation from The College of Idaho. Information on the ISU application process can be found at their web site.

During their course work at The College of Idaho, students will complete 105 credits, including minors in Social Sciences/History and Humanities/Fine Arts, in addition to all of the prerequisite courses for the Idaho State University Accelerated Nursing Program. Completion of the ISU program along with the prerequisites will count for the Natural Sciences and Professional Studies PEAKs. Please note that ISU only accepts a maximum of 8 credits in religion; therefore, the Religion Minor is not a viable option to fulfill the Humanities/Fine Arts PEAK. Transfer students must complete a minimum of 30 credits at The College of Idaho.
