Conditional admission may be granted to applicants who qualify academically, but have not yet achieved UIdaho's minimum English language requirements for full admission.
Our graduate programs are highly competitive and therefore may not be able to accept students in the Conditional Admission category. Graduate programs that accept conditional admission
Students granted conditional admission must enroll in UIdaho's American Language and Culture Program (ALCP) to achieve the minimum language requirement and achieve the academic department’s English language requirement prior to being granted full admission and commencing their degree program. If the required level of language proficiency is not achieved within a two-year time period, applicants may petition to continue in the ALCP, and will need to reapply for admission with the Graduate Admissions Office.
Please Note: Successful completion of Level 6 in UIdaho’s American Language and Culture Program (ALCP) substitutes for the minimum 79/550 TOEFL requirement.
Students seeking conditional admission must submit all International Application Materials.
Some programs/departments require submission of additional documents. Contact the department to which you are applying to determine if there are additional requirements.
- All documents are subject to verification by University of Idaho.
- All documents received by University of Idaho become the property of University of Idaho and will not be released to anyone or any institution--not even the applicant.
- University of Idaho evaluates credentials earned through formal academic training only. Applicants should NOT submit documentation of short-term professional development courses or other non-formal, non-academic training with their application; as such documents will not be evaluated or reflected in the University of Idaho evaluation report.
- If applicable, applicants must submit proof of name change. (Clear, legible photocopy of marriage certificate, for example.)
- Some academic institutions can take several weeks to provide transcripts so applicants may want to request their transcript at the earliest possible
- An Application and an Application Fee are valid for a specific degree, major, and semester. Any change in degree, major or semester before enrollment requires a new application.
- Graduate Admissions will not disclose to an applicant reasons for denial. Graduate Admissions will encourage the student to contact the department directly and inquire how they might improve their application for future admissions. (The Department can choose to disclose or not.)
