Vandal Ready

Are you ready to be a Vandal?

This is your moment. Let's get started!

Meet with your advisor to plan fall classes, on-campus housing and sign up for New Student Orientation.

Step One: Fill out the ready to register form.

Step Two: Your assigned advisor will reach out to you via email to set up an appointment in VandalStar.
Step Three: Meet with advisor per advisor’s instructions. Your advisor will discuss course options and assist you in the registration process. Advisors will begin scheduling registration appointments on March 27.

UIdaho Bound: Do you want in person advising? Just attend UIdaho Bound to finish steps one, two and three in one day!

All full-time, first-year students under 21 years of age are required to live on campus in a residence hall or fraternity/sorority facility for one academic year. Learn more about the requirement or find the exemption form.

Fraternity and Sorority Life

Sign up for fraternity or sorority recruitment.

Residence Hall Life

Apply for a residence hall and choose your dining plan.

Note: If you're seeing the portal is down, wait a few minutes and try again. As users pick a room and log out it will automatically allow more students to log in. Also, please log out after you complete your application. That will help reduce the number of users in the application at one time.

Still unsure? Attend UIdaho Bound to tour both options and ask all your questions.
