Students who applied by the Early Action 1 Deadline will receive their initial financial aid package in December. All other students will receive their financial aid package within two weeks of their admission decision.

Students should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon after October 1st as possible and add The College of Idaho to their FAFSA using our school code: 001617. The College uses FAFSA information to determine need-based scholarships and eligibility for federal grants and loans.

Admitted Student Day

Admitted Students Days celebrate students’ acceptance to The College of Idaho and help ensure they are ready to start their first year off on the right foot. 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. Students and families will also have the opportunity to speak with current students, members of the Parent Council, and college staff to learn more about campus life and what it means to be a Yote.

Only students who have already been accepted to The College of Idaho will receive an invitation to this event. If you have further questions, please contact your Admission Counselor or email our Visit Center.
