Accessibility Information

Boise State is for everyone!

Boise State is committed to creating a learning, working, and living environment that is fully accessible for people with disabilities. When digital products and services are accessible, everyone can participate fully in society. People with disabilities can access the information and services they need to live independently, work and participate in their communities on their terms.

“Education changes lives. Making the university accessible to our whole community means we can serve more Idahoans and help people fully develop their talents to bring them to the world. I’m grateful for the work happening across campus to open our digital spaces to every prospective student, employee, donor and anyone who interacts with Boise State in the digital environment. We are striving to create a university where everyone has the opportunity to create their best future and to give back.”

–Dr. Marlene Tromp, Boise State president
