Welcome to the #YoteFam! Now what do you do? The process is far from over, but don't worry — we're here to help! Look through the information below, and if you don't find the answers you are looking for always feel free to contact your admission counselor.
Admitted Student Information
Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) begins the process for making your college education more affordable. The College uses FAFSA information to determine need-based scholarships and eligibility for federal grants and loans. The FAFSA should be filed as soon after January 1 as possible. In order for The College of Idaho to receive your FAFSA you must put us on the list of schools to receive your FAFSA by using our school code 001617. Remember, you are also required to notify the Financial Aid office of any scholarships you receive from other sources. An excellent way to notify them is to email them directly. Remember to tell them your name, the amount of the scholarship, and where it is coming from.
The Admitted Student Open House is a time to congratulate students on being accepted to The College of Idaho as well as to answer in-depth questions about PEAK. This is a time to sit down and analyze if your major and minor choices are the best combination to achieve your goals. Students who are still undecided can use this time to thoroughly reflect on what it is they want to accomplish and receive guidance from first year advisors. Only students who have been accepted to the College, and have received their acceptance letter, are eligible to register for the Open House. If you have further questions, please contact your Admission Counselor or email our Visit Center.
To reserve your place in the Class of 2022 a non-refundable enrollment deposit of $300 is required by May, 1 2018, or by the date stated on your acceptance letter. Priority for living arrangements and class registration is based on when your deposit is received, so we recommend depositing as early as possible. An early deposit means you'll have first-pick of the housing and courses of your choice. The funds received from your deposit are deducted from your total tuition and fees for Fall term. To pay your deposit with a card use the link at the top of the page, or contact our Business Office for more payment options.
Once you submit your enrollment deposit you are eligible to fill out the Community Living Agreement. Whether you live on- or off-campus, all new students are required to submit a Community Living Agreement by June 1, 2018. Like the enrollment deposit, the Community Living Agreement is usually submitted much earlier than the deadline because it's where you submit your housing preferences. If you want to petition to waive the housing and/or meal plan requirements please contact your admission counselor. If you have any further questions about housing please contact Jen Nelson, Director of Residence Life.
