Once your student has been accepted into Boise State University we encourage you and your student to visit in order to complete the FAFSA. This application will ask for the tax information of the student and of the parent(s). The purpose of this application is to identify the eligibility for grants, scholarships, work-study jobs, and student loans. The application is very straightforward and offers tips as you complete the application.



If your student is in need of additional aid, urge them to visit the Boise State University Scholarships site. Through Boise State University students may apply for private scholarships as well as scholarships that are administered by the university. These scholarships come in various amounts and durations.

Another option to pay for tuition/student fees is through federal education loans, which include student loans, as well as parent loans. Private lenders also offer student education loans, however, we strongly recommend pursuing federal loans first.
