students need only submit a complete admissions application and their transcript and test scores to the Admissions Office in order to be considered for merit-based scholarships and out-of-state tuition waivers. No other applications are required.
These documents must be received by February 15 to be given priority consideration.
All continuing University of Idaho students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships as long as they are enrolled in at least nine University of Idaho credits (undergraduates), six University of Idaho credits (graduates) or 10 University of Idaho credits (law students) during the previous spring semester. Continuing students do NOT
have to file separate scholarship applications.
To be considered for need-based scholarships and federal aid, students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the U.S. Department of Education Federal Processor. For priority consideration of merit-based scholarships, the admission application must reach the University of Idaho by February 15.
Recipients of University of Idaho scholarships are required to enroll full time (defined as 12 credits for undergraduate students, nine credits for graduate students, and 10 credits for law students) unless the donor of the scholarship funds has indicated to the institution that part-time students are eligible. For award criteria and information specific to particular scholarship awards, contact Student Financial Aid Services.
students will need to provide all necessary information with the Graduate Application for Admissions
; no separate forms are necessary. The application can be found on the Graduate Admissions Web site
