Apply Idaho

How to get started

After you have decided which college and/or universities are the best fit, you will need the following information to complete the process:

  • Permanent email address (Not your Emmett High School Email Address)
  • EDUID (This is your state student identification number)

You can view your Direct Admissions Letter from the Idaho State Board of Education by creating an Apply Idaho account. This letter tells you the Idaho schools at which you already meet the admissions requirements. Check it out today by creating your account.

Then spend time clicking through Next Steps Idaho to learn more about Idaho's colleges and universities, degree programs, and financial aid.

Once you have made a decision, use your Apply Idaho account to apply to one or more schools.

Remember Apply Idaho is an Idaho-only common application that is:

  • Free
  • Online
  • Easy
  • Fast


In addition to all Idaho public colleges, students can apply to the College of Idaho and Northwest Nazarene University. Visit the Idaho Colleges Directory for information about Idaho’s public institutions.

Apply Idaho can only be used by students who graduate in the Spring of the current year. Students who graduate high school in any other year must refer to each institution’s website and apply directly to the school there.

To use Apply Idaho, students will need:

  • To know their full legal name
  • To know their permanent address
  • To know their EDUID number (ask a counselor if unsure)
  • To have a personal email address (not associated with a high school)

All Idaho seniors (attending public and charter high schools) will find their Direct Admissions letter within Apply Idaho, once they register and log in. This notification tells them that their grades are a match with Idaho’s public college’s criteria for admission, based on the State Board-approved benchmark. Students who wish to take advantage of the direct admissions offer can use Apply Idaho to submit application materials to one or more of Idaho’s colleges and universities.

In addition to submitting the application materials, all students are encouraged to fill out the FAFSA, as soon as possible after it opens on October 1.
