Admission Checklist for NonDegree-Seeking Graduate Students
1. Submit an Application for Graduate Admission to Graduate Admission and Degree Services, along with the one-time, non-refundable $55 application fee.
2. Request an official transcript from the institution that granted your highest degree. Transcripts can be turned in by hand if they are in the original sealed envelopes or they can be mailed or faxed to us directly from the originating institution. Please note that you DO NOT have to supply a Boise State University transcript. If you are a non-degree seeking student, you may register for as many credits as you wish but you will be ineligible for financial aid. Please be sure to check the current Class Schedule to see if your classes need prerequisites or departmental approval. Some classes are not available for non-degree seeking students but are reserved for those already in a degree program.
If this is your first application for graduate admission, please fill in all information on the secure application form and include the one-time, non-refundable $55 application fee. You can use a Visa/MasterCard or Discover card and include it with your online application, call in the number after submitting your application, or print the form and mail it and a check in together.
When you are finished and ready to submit, first print a copy to keep for your records and then click the submit button to send the completed form. You can also print out a copy to mail or fax to us at 208-426-2789. Our mailing address is: Boise State University, Graduate Admission and Degree Services, 1910 University Drive, Boise, ID 83725-1110.
If you have enrolled at Boise State as a graduate student within the last two years, you do not need to reapply. Go online with My.BoiseState to register. If it has been longer than two years, or if you had applied and never enrolled, you will need to reapply but will not need to pay the application fee again. Use our online form and include any changes in name, address, program, etc. since your last application. When you are finished and ready to submit, first print a copy to keep for your records and then click the submit button to send the completed form.
