If you do not attend one of these schools and would like to receive general advising, please contact our office to schedule an advising appointment.

STEP 1: Complete and submit an online Pre-Advising Questionnaire.

STEP 2: Upon review of the completed Pre-Advising Questionnaire to determine if you are eligible, a Boise State Concurrent Enrollment advisor will contact you to schedule an advising appointment. If you do not receive a response within 7-14 days, please contact our office. Parents are encouraged to attend advising sessions. Students not eligible to participate will be notified.

STEP 3: Complete the Sophomore Start option agreement, have it signed by a parent or guardian, and bring it to your scheduled advising session.

STEP 4: Attend a 45-minute advising session with your parent(s) or guardian(s) to draft a degree plan based your academic goals and degree interests. The degree plan will be designed to guide you in choosing appropriate dual credit courses that will facilitate a seamless transition to college.

STEP 5: After your advising session, if necessary, you may make changes to your academic plan by submitting an updated degree plan as needed. Submission of the Sophomore Start degree plan will help you stay on track toward completing your goals, by showing you how earned credits apply to a degree, and where in the degree they apply.

STEP 6: If you plan to take a summer class, you must submit an application to take on campus classes and attend our Sophomore Start Summer Orientation. Details will be provided during your advising session.
