Colleges & Universities


Known as the Gem State, Idaho is home to eight public colleges and universities, 16 registered private colleges and universities, and more than 20 proprietary schools that serve the state’s approximately 62,000 students. Two of the state’s larger institutions, Boise State University and the University of Idaho, were ranked 67th of western regional universities and 160th of national universities, respectively, by U.S. News & World Report. The state’s colleges and universities are overseen by the Idaho State Board of Education, an organization that sets policies and advocates the improvement of the educational system. The organization operates programs designed to stimulate competitive research at the state’s universities and other student incentive and higher education partnership programs.
