Idaho high school seniors are getting notification this week of their college admission.
Nearly 20,000 postcards were mailed by the Idaho State Board of Education, alerting students they qualified for the Direct Admissions program. That allows all public high school seniors to earn placement to six or all eight of Idaho’s public colleges and universities. Placement invitations depend on their academic performance in high school.
The postcard is intended to encourage students to begin planning. They will need to apply before they are accepted at either a technical college or university.
“High school seniors and their families should look at their acceptance letter and mark October 1st on their calendars,” State Board College and Career Advising Program Manager Byron Yankey said. “That’s when they can apply to any Idaho college or university, for free using the Next Steps Idaho website.“
