CFS works closely with ABE and the Center for New Directions to ensure that the transition
experience is positive and seamless. For students, these centers serve as secure, knowable
passages that enable students to safely navigate the higher education system.

EITC’s Safety Policy and Emergency Plan outlines actions EITC officials, in conjunction with
local government officials and volunteer organizations will take to prevent avoidable
disasters and reduce the vulnerability of students, faculty, and staff to any disasters that
may occur. It includes emergency procedures given to all employees to follow in a variety of
specific emergency situations. EITC maintains an emergency notification system, which is
capable of transmitting emergency information to faculty, staff, and students’ personal
devices and networked computers. The College works closely with the Idaho Falls police for
emergency response.
2.D.3 Recruitment, Admission and Matriculation
EITC employs a full-time career placement and campus recruiting coordinator and two full-
time vocational/academic counselors, one specifically dedicated to assisting students in the
health professions, the largest instructional division on campus. In FY 15, General Education
instructors were trained to advise prospective students in the Licensed Practical Nursing
(LPN) and Registered Nursing (RN) programs on prerequisites for their programs, thus
lessening the load for program advisors. Recruitment efforts consist of college fairs, career
fairs, and high school visits. The vocational/academic counselors also serve an admission’s
function by advising new students on requirements of programs as well as assist applicants
in matching their skill sets and aspirations with their educational goal.
When classes are in session, prospective students who have completed the application
process meet with the program manager from their area of study to determine first
semester courses prior to orientation. This process is especially helpful for students
entering during spring semester who would otherwise be “off-track.” Once enrolled in a
program of study, students are assisted by faculty.
is split into online and on-site segments. Students first complete
the online portion where they receive an introduction to the campus, information regarding
academic standards and deadlines, resources, and financial aid. Students receive access to
the computer system, set up an on-campus email account and enroll into courses using the
computer-based registration platform, “WebAdvisor.” WebAdvisor also allows students to
run a graduation audit in order to identify courses needed to complete for graduation.
Graduation and transfer policies are discussed in detail in the EITC Catalog and the Student
Handbook/Planner. Transfer policies allow for a thorough review of previously completed
course work to assess eligibility for graduation.
