Dual credit students that enroll in classes only need to apply for their first semester of enrollment. If they do not enroll (gap in enrollment) for U of I classes for two years, they must submit a new application. If a student applies for a semester and never enrolls, they must submit a new application for the new semester they want to attend. If a student participates each year in high school, they would only apply for admissions the first semester they started classes.
Students, whenever possible, should enroll into courses that count towards fulfillment of both their general education requirement and a program of study. Degree plans for some majors include a very limited number of elective credits. A minimum of 120 credit hours are necessary for a bachelor's degree.
Students must meet all listed pre-requisites for the class they want to enroll in. Students can use ACT, SAT, AP, or placement exam scores to satisfy pre-requisites. The most common classes that require exam scores.
- Math Classes - Students who want to enroll in a math class can take the ALEKS placement exam to determine which course(s) they can enroll in. ACT, SAT, and AP math scores can also be used for placement into Math classes.

The On-Campus Option allows high school students to take college courses on the university campus or online through the Dual Credit program. These courses are only offered for university credit and are recorded on the university transcript. Students must work with their high school to have these credits count toward high school core requirements. A dual credit non-degree student may register for no more than 12 credits each semester and may complete a maximum of 62-semester credits at the University of Idaho. High school students participating in the On-Campus Option follow the same deadlines as regular university students.
Students participating in the on-campus/online option are not eligible for federal financial aid programs. Students are responsible for attached course fees not covered by Advanced Opportunities.
