Your To-Do List

  • 1. Set up your Vandal accounts.
    Setting up your Vandal accounts as soon as possible ensures that you will receive crucial information on important updates about financial aid, billing, housing, registration, deadlines and more.

    Be sure to check your VandalWeb and VandalMail accounts frequently to make sure you don't miss important information.

    VandalWeb is important because it allows you access to your transcripts, student account, add/drop class forms, registration and many other important items that will help with your success at the University of Idaho. 

    VandalMail is important because it is the official email used by your professors, academic advisor, and the different university departments to communicate important dates and information with you.

  • 2. Confirm your enrollment.

    The University of Idaho requires a $100 deposit to secure your space in the incoming class and make all necessary plans for your arrival so we can officially welcome you to the Vandal family!

    The enrollment deposit is required for all new first-year, transfer, and international students who are enrolling at the University of Idaho in the fall and spring semesters. Qualified waivers may be requested by those who meet specific criteria.

    May 1 is the enrollment deposit deadline, and deposits submitted after May 1 will be processed on a case-by-case basis.
