Follow the instructions below to complete the IDP worksheet. To learn more about the IDP, read What is an IDP?

Tab 1. IDP Worksheet

  • Plan your path to graduation by identifying upper-division credit requirements (courses numbered 300-499). All students are required to earn a minimum of 40 upper-division credits. Contact assigned instructors or your advisor if you have questions about a course.
  • Include the semester/year you will take the course, along with the course number, title, and credits. Note any required prerequisites for each course you list.

Important Notes

(a) The 30 upper-division credits that fulfill major requirements or university foundation requirements must be completed with a grade of C- or better. (b) At least 30 upper-division credits at Boise State to meet university residency requirements. See Academic Advisement Report (AAR) & advisor for other Boise State requirements.
