Getting Started with VESi

Follow these steps to earn professional development credit through VESI online courses.

Before you start the process:

  • Check with your certifying agency to determine if these credits meet your district and/or state requirements.
  • Note that courses taken for professional development credit cannot be changed to academic credit.

Step 1: Apply

If you have never enrolled as a professional development student at Boise State or it has been more than two years, complete the online Boise State VESi Professional Development Admission Application.

Once you’re admitted to VESi, you’ll receive an email from Boise State Extended Studies with your Student ID number and username for myBoiseState, the system that you will use to enroll in courses. This process can take up to a week to complete so apply early!

If it has been less than two years since you were enrolled for a course at the CPD, use your previously provided myBoiseState login information to enroll.
