Getting Started with Advising

Benefits of Advising

Advising is an essential part of College of Eastern Idaho's commitment to helping students achieve their academic goals. Advisors help every step of the way with things like major exploration, career planning, and other areas of support. We encourage students to reach out to an advisor to help them on their academic journey.

15 to Finish

15 to Finish is a program where you will take at least 15 credits during the fall and spring semesters. If you take at least 15 credits every semester, you will finish your associates degree in two years and will be ready to transfer to your university of choice.

Momentum Year is about helping you gain and sustain progress at the beginning of your college journey. We do this by helping you get into math and English earlier and finishing faster. We Have our Jump Start Program and Academic and Career Exploration class which will help you progress through your first year of your college degree.

Math and English Placement You are required to have placement to take math and English.
If your scores do not meet the required placement for English and/or math you can still take them. You will be required to take an additional one credit lab for both English 101, math 143 (college algebra), and math 153 (statistical reasoning). You can also take math 108 (intermediate algebra) without a lab even if you do not place into it.
