About Independent Study in Idaho

Independent Study in Idaho (ISI) was created in 1973 by the Idaho State Board of Education as a cooperative of regionally accredited Idaho institutions led by the University of Idaho. Other participating members include Boise State University, Lewis-Clark State College, and Idaho State University.

Students use ISI courses to complete their studies and prepare for successful careers by beginning college programs early, graduating on time, resolving on-campus scheduling conflicts, satisfying prerequisites or pursuing professional development or personal enrichment.

ISI classes include general education courses, coursework to earn an Idaho Teacher Librarian Endorsement and coursework to become an Idaho and Washington Addictions Counselor.

The ISI office is on the University of Idaho Moscow campus. Contact us today.
