Boise State Admissions

At Boise State, we break norms and blaze new trails. We explore, experience and innovate. It’s what drives a mindset we call Blue Turf Thinking.

It’s about seeing things differently, being creative, finding new solutions, and imagining the possibilities of what could be. Here, you’ll discover opportunities to maximize your potential and achieve more in a thriving, tight-knit community so that you’re prepared and ready for what’s next.

So, how will you make an impact?
