If you are a student who has attended within the last eight semesters, you are eligible to register for classes without readmission. However, your program of study may require separate departmental readmission. Also, if any prior restrictions exist, they must be cleared. You are required to provide the Office of Admissions with current address, telephone number, major, and a transcript from any university or college you have attended and have not previously reported. You are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions to indicate your intent to reenroll. Former students NOT enrolled for eight semesters must reapply. Once accepted, make an appointment with your major advisor.
All students are expected to know academic requirements and policies. They are also expected to assume major responsibility for planning their individual programs of study in accordance with university and major requirements and policies, as described in the Undergraduate Catalog. Meeting with an advisor on a regular basis can be very helpful in the planning process.

Part-Time/Full-Time Student Status
To be considered a full-time student for academic and financial aid purposes, an undergraduate must be enrolled for 12 or more credits. Graduate students are full time when enrolled for 9 or more credits.
For financial aid purposes, an undergraduate may qualify for half-time financial aid when enrolled for 6-8 credits, and three-quarter time financial aid when enrolled for 9-11 credits (for a semester or any of the sessions within the semester).
Please contact ASISU (208-282-3435) to determine eligibility for ASISU elective or appointed office.
Please note: in order to graduate in four years, an undergraduate student must complete an average of 30 credits per year and all required coursework. Students paying by the credit hour pay “full-time” fees if taking 10 or 11 credits. However, full-time status depends on the credit hours attempted, not the fees actually paid.
