Idaho College Acceptance Letter — What do I do next?

In late September, you and your parents will be receiving nearly identical letters from the State Board of Education. These letters will tell you (and your parents) which Idaho colleges and/or universities have accepted you based on your grades and SAT/ACT scores. You’ll also receive a reminder letter in October.


ACT Information for Students

The ACT® test is a college entrance exam accepted and valued by all universities and colleges in the United States. The ACT is based on what students learn in high school and provides personalized information about their strengths for education and career planning.


Next Steps Toolkit – Images

Next Steps Idaho images are intended for school e-newsletters or other promotional materials. These feature Idaho middle and high school students and can be used in printed or digital materials produced by schools to promote Next Steps Idaho as a resource for students and families.


Next Steps Toolkit – Web Banners

The Next Steps web banner ads are for use on school websites or to be distributed to community partners (media, libraries, nonprofits, other community organizations) that help students and families plan for the future. There are two ad sets: one for websites students might visit and one for websites parents, families, and educators might visit.


Next Steps Marketing Toolkit

In 2015, the Idaho State Board of Education launched this website to provide easily accessible, Idaho-focused information about postsecondary options for Idaho students. This site helps connect students and their families with resources that help students prepare for life after high school. These files, which provide print and digital marketing assets, can help your school or district promote the site and encourage use of Next Steps Idaho by school staff, students, and families.
