Idaho State University–Idaho Falls is the higher education center of one of Idaho’s most dynamic cities. It offers a comprehensive general education curriculum as well as 40 complete degree programs, all from a Carnegie-classified research institution with more than 50 years of experience in helping Upper Snake River Valley residents achieve their goals. Idaho State University–Idaho Falls is the largest of Idaho State University’s statewide network of higher education centers. It provides upper Snake River Valley students the opportunity to complete associate, bachelor, master, and doctoral degrees in Idaho Falls, making it the city’s hometown university. Conveniently located at University Place on the banks of the Snake River, Idaho State University–Idaho Falls’ neighbors include the U.S. Department of Energy headquarters for the Idaho National Laboratory, and the new Center for Advanced Energy Studies.

Students at Idaho State University–Idaho Falls take classes that are not only close to home, but also just a short drive from a three-state region’s commercial, health care, business and government centers. Upper Valley residents who are seeking continuing-education opportunities find electives as well as noncredit professional- and personal-development courses. Day and evening classes also are available. Among the many degree programs that can be completed at Idaho State University–Idaho Falls are associate, bachelor, masters, and doctoral degrees in fields such as biology, business, history, mathematics and physics; the M.B.A.; the B.S. in nuclear engineering; the Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Science (Nuclear Engineering); the B.S. in nursing; and the M.Ed. and Ed.D.

Through its partnership with the University of Idaho, students can take classes from either university. A joint partnership with the College of Eastern Idaho (CEI) allows for a smooth transition from a CEI associate degree to an ISU baccalaureate degree. 

Idaho State University–Idaho Falls’ contemporary facilities include up-to-date computing labs, a large auditorium and student-services offices. A campus centerpiece is the Samuel H. Bennion Student Union that includes study and games areas, cafeteria, lounge, bookstore, and computer lab.

Between classes, students can cross-country ski at adjacent Freeman Park, jog on the paved riverside greenbelt, or watch University Place’s resident bald eagles and ospreys soar above the river.
