While we believe that attending an on-campus orientation provides the best experience, we do offer a long distance orientation for students under certain circumstances. To qualify, you must be unable to attend any on-campus orientation date offerings due to one or more of the following reasons:
- Live more than 300 miles from Boise, Idaho
- Active military service which would prevent you from attending all on-campus program dates
- Distance employment (e.g., forest fire fighting)
- Travel or service abroad for the full summer
The long distance orientation option is designed to connect you with key campus resources, provide basic advising, and prepare you to register for classes. Participation in long distance orientation is by application only.
The application for Long Distance Orientation for students starting in spring 2019 is now closed. For students starting in the fall of 2019, the application will open in mid-May.
