College of Southern Idaho

About

CSI’s nearly 350-acre campus in Twin Falls was established in 1965. Off campus centers operate in Burley, Hailey, Gooding, and Jerome. More than half of the nearly 13,000 students enrolled in CSI’s spring/fall semesters, are dual credit students from approximately 70 high schools all over the state. CSI offers associate degrees in more than 40 transferable academic majors and more than 40 career technical programs that offer certification or an associate of applied science. CSI is also the first community college in the state of Idaho to offer a bachelor’s degree in Advanced Food Technology. By way of partnerships with Idaho State University, Boise State University, and University of Idaho, CSI offers bachelor’s and master’s degrees as well as certification in nearly 50 additional programs. CSI also provides basic skills, workforce training, economic development, and enrichment programs to its students and community members.
