Student Types Defined

We understand that it can be a bit confusing. So here's more about how we determine eligibility.

First-Year Students

  • An un-weighted GPA from regionally accredited high school is used
  • SAT score includes critical reading and math only
  • Eligibility for students from home-school or non-accredited high schools will be calculated from ACT or SAT scores only. At this time, the estimator above cannot be used to determine eligibility for students from home-school or non-accredited high schools.

Transfer Students

  • Must have completed 14 or more semester (21 quarter) credits after high school graduation
  • Must be pursuing first bachelor’s degree

It's as Simple as 1, 2...

Applying for University of Idaho scholarships may be the easiest thing you've done this year.

1. Submit your admission application materials (including transcripts and test scores) by February 15th.
2. File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after the opening on January 1 to receive consideration for all other types of aid.

Funding for some programs, including federal grants and loans will continue to be available for late applicants.
