Your Path Awaits

Bronco Gap Year

Boise State invented a new kind of educational experience, just for you.


A “gap year” is all about taking time. Some people take a year before starting college, others take a pause during their college experience. The Bronco Gap Year provides valuable time for you to save money, focus your interests, and start or restart your college experience with a strong sense of purpose.



“I chose Gap Year to help me explore and dig deep into my career goals. These consist of learning about the HR field, the opportunities within the Boise State program, and gaining connections. At the end of my gap year, I plan to have a clear and strong idea of what I want for my bachelor’s degree and where I will be motivated to start my career journey.” – Cody M.
