Tuition, Fees, and Financial Assistance

Tuition & Fees

In general, the costs of attending Boise State comprise tuition, institutional fees, and special fees. Your actual costs depend on how many classes you take, the type of classes you take, and your status as a resident or nonresident student. For instance, Idaho state law stipulates that Idaho residents cannot be charged tuition (the direct cost of instruction); for Idaho residents, then, the principal cost of attending Boise State arises from institutional fees. In addition to these fees, you may also have to pay such additional charges as workshop fees or materials charges, depending on the type of classes you take. For current information on tuition, fees, residency requirements, and insurance, please see University Tuition and Fees.
