We process student requests that require director or committee approval once a week on Wednesdays and Thursdays most weeks. Materials received by 5:00 PM on Thursday are reviewed the following week. A request with missing materials will result in a delay in going to the director or committee, so be sure to submit all required information and documents with your request.

You should receive a response via Boise State student e-mail ( within 3-4 business days after the director or committee reviews your request.

If you need information about a particular aspect of the First-Year Writing Program and you don’t find it here, please contact us at or (208) 426-4209.
