Admission Decisions

After all of your materials have been received, Boise State will make the following decisions.

Part 1-Admission to University

Boise State University will admit you to the Graduate College with Degree-Seeking status after we have:

  • Confirmed your completion of baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution
  • Confirmed you have earned a 3.0 cumulative GPA (if below 3.0, then at least 3.0 GPA from last 60 credits)

Part 2-Admission to Program

After Part 1 has been completed, your application file will be reviewed by the Certificate Program Coordinator who will provide an admission recommendation to the Dean of the Graduate College. The Dean will make the final admission decision and notify you with an admission status letter.

Part 3-Registering for Classes

Admitted students will receive a unique student ID number and Boise State email address from the Graduate College in the admission status letter. The Certificate Program Coordinator will send admitted students information with instructions on how to register for classes, including how to complete an online orientation process.
