All financial aid forms and applications can be accessed through the Financial Aid website. We highly recommend submitting a scholarship application through the scholarship portal. 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.

Returning students are able to live on- or off-campus. 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 site 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.
