Your Next Steps at a Glance
The first step to getting started at the University of Idaho is activating your Vandalweb and Vandal e-mail accounts. Any pertinent information will be sent to you through one of those accounts, and it is important that you have access to them.
2. Submit a final transcript to the Admissions Office.
We will conduct a formal review of your final official transcript to evaluate your transfer credits.
Your success is important to us and having someone to guide you is a helpful tool. An academic advisor in your major is ready and available to help you set goals, review your transfer credits, and assist you in selecting and registering for the classes you need.
Classes tend to fill up quickly so it is important that you plan ahead of time and work with an advisor in selecting the appropriate classes to make sure you stay on target.
The University of Idaho campus has several affordable and family-friendly housing options available to you.
Ordering your text books is easy and convenient. You can either stop by the local University Bookstore or find your books online through our Textbook Express.
7. Pay your bill.
Make sure to monitor your Vandal email and VandalWeb account for any fees that have been charged. All fees must be paid before the first day of classes.
8. Check your financial aid.
Financial Aid is important; you want to make sure you receive everything you have been awarded. Cross-check any required documents to make sure they are filled out properly and have been submitted.
