College of Eastern Idaho


College of Eastern Idaho (CEI) (formerly EITC) is Idaho’s newest comprehensive community college. The college now offers academic associate of arts (AA) and associate of science (AS) general education degrees that will transfer to a university. Another new opportunity is Early College Programs for high school students. CEI continues to offer career technical programs, basic skills instruction, workforce training or continuing education, and online learning. CEI is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. The college was created in 1969 to serve citizens in a nine-county service area. Now CEI’s mission enlarges to provide open-access to affordable, quality education that meets the needs of eastern Idaho students, regional employers, and the community.
