Spring Semester To-Do List

Spring 2018 Semester

Congratulations! You are well on your way to your first class at the University of Idaho. There are just a few things to do before you can start. To help make your time here more productive and successful we've set up a to-do list to help you with those few things. Check back often to stay on track.

First Things First

Setting up your Vandal accounts as soon as possible ensures that you will receive crucial information on important updates about financial aid, billing, housing, registration, deadlines and more.

Check your VandalWeb and VandalMail accounts frequently to make sure you don't miss important information.

VandalWeb allows you access to your transcripts, student account, add/drop class forms, registration and many other important items that are vital to your success at the University of Idaho.

VandalMail is the official email used by your professors, academic advisor and the different university departments to communicate important dates and information with you.

Quick Action Links:

The University of Idaho requires a $100 deposit to secure your space in the incoming class and make all necessary plans for your arrival so we can officially welcome you to the Vandal family.

The enrollment deposit is required for all new domestic first-year and transfer students who are enrolling at the University of Idaho in the fall and spring semesters. Qualified waivers may be requested by those who meet specific criteria.

December 1 is the enrollment deposit priority date for Spring 2018.
May 1 is the enrollment deposit priority date for Fall 2018, but we will continue to process enrollment deposits during the summer months.

Quick Action Links:

Be aware of these important dates and deadlines:

  1. December – Review your financial aid awards on VandalWeb. If you have a student loan, complete the master promissory note and entrance counseling online.
  2. Early January – You will receive your university bill that includes charges for tuition and fees, residence hall and meal plan charges for on-campus housing and health insurance. Note: A Health Insurance Form may be submitted in VandalWeb if you are covered under another policy. Financial aid and scholarship awards that have been accepted on VandalWeb will be included if you are enrolled half-time (6 credits undergraduate/5 credits graduate) for Stafford loans and full-time (12 credits undergraduate/9 credits graduate) for scholarships and grants. In order for loans to be included on your billing statement, you must complete entrance counseling, the master promissory note, and (for certain PLUS borrowers) credit counseling at www.studentloans.gov.
  3. Jan. 4 – Be sure to authorize direct deposit on VandalWeb by this date so that the earliest disbursement of financial aid residual funds can be deposited into your checking or savings account. Financial aid awards are first applied to university charges. Residual funds are then released to students for books, living expenses, etc.
  4. Jan. 8 – Residual funds will be deposited into your bank on or near this estimated date. Watch your VandalMail for a notice from Student Accounts to let you know the funds have been sent for direct deposit.
  5. Jan. 10 – (first day of classes) – All semester tuition and fees, residence hall and meal plan charges for on-campus housing, and health insurance must be paid at the Student Accounts Office, on VandalWeb, or through the mail. Monthly payment plans are available through Student Accounts.
  6. Jan. 24 – Financial aid will be locked at 5 p.m. to reflect the number of credits in which you are currently enrolled. Loans require half-time enrollment (6 credits). Most scholarships, work study, Perkins and SEOG require full-time enrollment (12 credits).

As a new Vandal, you’ve got a whole world of fascinating ideas available to you, and we recognize you’ll need some guidance on what courses to choose – especially as you’re getting started. Over the course of your Vandal career, your academic advisor will help you understand the general core requirements, balance your course-load, and make personal and professional connections within the Vandal community.

As you're thinking about your first semester, please consult the How to Register page for detailed instructions on how to prepare for your initial advising conversation. Once you’ve got all your documents ready (e.g. ACT/SAT scores, core classes to take and the appropriate math and English courses), please use the advisor finder tool to connect with the advising contact in your department. If you’ve decided to change your major or are unsure what major you indicated on your application for admission, please call the Admissions Office at (208) 885-6326.
