Priority Application Dates
The University of Idaho has “rolling admission.” This means that there is not a hard deadline for receiving an application and required materials.
However, international students face additional steps and need to allow for submitting required documents for review for your I-20 Form, being issued an I-20, registering for classes, applying for your U.S. student visa, making travel arrangements, etc.
In light of this, we have established priority application dates. If you decide to apply outside of these dates, please submit a complete application no later than three months prior to the start of your desired start term. This will give you time to work through your steps and feel prepared for your arrival to the University of Idaho.
Application deadlines for each academic program can be found on the application information page. Some programs have deadlines earlier than those listed below or have a rolling admission process, which always takes precedence.
