Idaho State Flag

Students going to college in Idaho have plenty of choices when it comes to receiving a post-secondary education. There are three public universities in this state that are governed by the Idaho State Board of Education: the University of Idaho, Idaho State University, and Boise State University. The Board also oversees the state’s only public, four-year college, Lewis-Clark State College, as well as one technical college and three community colleges in Idaho. When it comes to the colleges of Idaho, most provide students with distance learning opportunities. Online graduate degree or certificate programs, bachelor degree completion programs, or continuing education courses are available at any of the public universities. At Idaho community colleges, students can look into taking Internet courses to fulfill general requirements or online training courses to advance in their career. Visit the Idaho Electronic Campus to learn more about online college in Idaho and the public institutions of higher education that offer distance programs and online classes. Also, while you would be hard pressed to find many strictly online colleges in Idaho, some of the private schools have both physical and virtual campuses. Brigham Young University – Idaho offers several online degree programs in areas such as business, healthcare, and information technology, and Northwest Nazarene University has more than 15 online programs for graduates, undergraduates, and adults.
