Direct Admissions Postcard
Seniors you should have received a postcard around the first part of September from the Idaho Board of Education.
Direct Admissions proactively admits Idaho public high school seniors to the state’s public higher education institutions based on each student’s grade point average (GPA) and SAT/ACT score.
Students at or above the benchmark will be pre-accepted to Idaho’s eight public universities and colleges: Boise State University, Idaho State University, the University of Idaho, Lewis-Clark State College, College of Eastern Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, College of Western Idaho and North Idaho College.
Students not meeting the benchmark will be admitted to the six public higher education institutions that offer certificate or associate degree programs: Idaho State University College of Technology, Lewis-Clark State College, College of Eastern Idaho, College of Southern Idaho, College of Western Idaho and North Idaho College.
YOU STILL HAVE TO APPLY TO THE COLLEGE/UNIVERSITY!
However, this indicates which schools in the state of Idaho who are already willing and anticipating you to apply to their school. Now, if you didn't hit the benchmark, you can still apply to the college if it's not on your letter. Remember this is all just based off test scores and GPA, and some of you have other skill sets you can bring to a campus.
