Summer Tuition Discount for Regular Fee-Based Programs

With our new summer tuition discount, summer classes are even more affordable!

Idaho Residents: Effective Summer 2019, the summer course per credit rate is 20% less than the fall and spring per credit rate. Summer 2019 resident tuition and fees are only $280/credit for undergraduate-level courses and $355/credit for graduate-level courses.

Non-Residents: Effective Summer 2019, the summer course per credit rate is over 50% less than the fall and spring per credit rate. The summer non-resident tuition and fees are only $315/credit for undergraduate-level courses and $390/credit for graduate-level courses.

We encourage students to take summer courses to graduate faster; however, enrolling in summer courses will not change your fees for fall and spring courses. Note: Alternative fee programs and courses with special fees are excluded from the summer discount. Detailed information about course fees can be found in the individual course listing in myBoiseState.

Follow the steps below to get started in the Boise State Summer Program.

Once you register for classes (including workshops that begin later in the summer), you remain registered and are responsible for the fees and grades for these classes unless you cancel your registration. If you decide not to attend any classes, you must drop all of them through myBoiseState. If you do not cancel your registration or pay your fees by the fee payment deadline, you will remain registered, you will be charged course fees, and you will be assessed a $50 late penalty.
