Admissions will begin releasing admissions decisions for Fall 2021 in mid-September; students who meet our automatic admissions standards will receive a decision within ten business days of completing their application. It will take a little longer to share an admission decision with  students who complete their applications in the days leading up to our Application and Scholarship Priority Deadlines, though. Those are:

  • Nonresident Application and Scholarship Priority Deadline: December 15, 2020
  • Resident Application and Scholarship Priority Deadline: February 15, 2021

Honors College

Students interested in applying to the Honors College can do so within the admissions application, or can hop in to complete that portion later. Idaho residents who apply to Boise State through the Apply Idaho application and indicate interest in the Honors College will receive follow-up instructions via email about applying to the Honors College.
