Choosing a college is a pivotal moment in many young peoples’ lives. At The College of Idaho, we are excited to be a part of that experience but understand that the admission process can be nerve-wracking and sometimes overwhelming for students. This is one of the many reasons we are grateful for all that you do, not only to assist students throughout this transition but to encourage them in the face of adversity and to inspire them to achieve their greatest potential.
In light of COVID-19 school closures, do you have questions about the acceptance of academic credit (ex. IB, AP, Dual-Credit courses, etc.) for your students? Read here.
We look forward to working with you and your students throughout the admission process. If there is ever anything we can do to help, please do not hesitate to reach out to one of our admission counselors.
