Let’s Get Started

At Boise State, we believe that education is one of the most significant investments a person can make. This doesn’t just include our students; we also know our employees and their families will grow and become stronger when they have access to the quality programs our University provides.

As part of our commitment to helping our staff members and their spouses flourish through academics, Boise State University offers tuition fee waivers for most courses and degrees ($5 per credit!), as well as access to concierge-level advising. Making education affordable and easy-to-navigate ensures that the Boise State employee community can invest in itself the way it invests in our students.

We encourage eligible staff and spouses to look into all available options for progressing in their careers and personal goals by taking advantage of their employee benefit package at Boise State University.

Available Degrees and Courses

Most degrees and courses offered by Boise State qualify for the $5/credit tuition fee waiver. A few do not. Here is a list of the degrees and courses that do not qualify. We are happy to help you pursue these if they are your passion and take you in the direction you want to go; we just want you to be aware of the financial constraints required to do so.
