Frequently Asked Questions

If you completed the Apply Idaho application, you do not have to submit an application through LC State. You will, however, still need to submit your transcripts, test scores, and SSN. If you did not complete the Apply Idaho application, you can either complete the Apply Idaho application or visit the Apply Now page.

You will receive your official acceptance letter from LC State via mail once we receive all admission documents from you. Normally, this process takes about one to two weeks but can take up to four weeks depending on the volume of applications that are being received at that time. In the meantime, check out our I've Already Applied page to see what your next steps are and find out more about financial aid, housing, and registering for classes.

This is the deadline the Idaho State Board of Education has declared. Our deadline for all admissions materials for the Fall semester is August 8th. Therefore, if you submit application materials after the February 16th deadline, your application will be evaluated based on our normal Admission Standards, alongside all other applications we receive.

An Idaho State Board of Education-approved benchmark GPA and college entrance exam score determined your admission eligibility.

Learn more about our Admissions Standards. Notice that the standards vary for academic degree-seeking applicants and career and technical education degree-seeking applicants.

March 1st is LC State's priority deadline.

To be considered for scholarships (including Idaho merit-based and out-of-state) we need to have your application and 7th semester (or 10th trimester) transcript on file by the priority deadline (that's the transcript from the first term of your Senior year of high school).

Submit all financial aid forms (including the FAFSA) and applications by our March 1st priority deadline for priority consideration.

All financial aid forms and applications can be accessed through the Financial Aid website. We highly recommend submitting a General Scholarship application. You will also want to submit your FAFSA (FAFSA school code: 001621), which will determine your eligibility for federal and state aid. You should submit all financial aid forms and applications by our March 1st priority deadline for priority consideration.

For more information regarding the specific types of financial aid available to you, please contact the Financial Aid Office at [email protected] or (208) 792-2224.

As a freshman, you are not required to live on-campus, so choose what will work best for you! On-campus housing and assignments are based on the date deposits are received. Once on-campus housing is full, students can continue to apply and be placed on a wait list. Visit the Residence Life website to learn about on-campus and some off-campus options.

If you have questions about housing, please contact Residence Life at [email protected] or (208) 792-2053.

All new LC students attend STAR (Student Advising and Registration) to select first semester classes. Once admitted, you will register to attend a STAR session. STAR provides information about financial aid, payments, what to expect from college, and how to register. STAR provides new students with an opportunity to ask questions about programs and career goals.

If you are not sure if you are admitted, contact the Admissions Office at [email protected] or (208) 792-2210 or (208) 792-2378. If you have been admitted, but have not received your STAR email, please contact The Advising Center at (208) 792-2313.

If you have questions that are specific to you and your application to LC State, please contact the Admissions Office at [email protected], 208-792-2210, or 208-792-2378. You can also contact an Admissions Specialist directly.
