Before classes start checklist

Log in to Self Service

Make sure to log in and get familiar with all Student Self Service has to offer. If you need help with username or password information, contact the Student Help Desk, or call (208) 680-6874.

Check your CEI Email

Accommodation Options

Disability impacts lots of people, but not everyone is familiar with how the accommodation process works. If in doubt - check it out. Disability Services , or call (208) 535-5314. The Disability Services office is in Building #5, Room 582.

Make financial arrangements for tuition payment

If your financial arrangements are delayed or will not cover your full-term charges, you must set up a payment plan or pay the remaining charges to avoid course deletion, late fees, financial holds, or collections.

Buy your textbooks

Using the CRNs (Course Reference Numbers) for the classes in which you are registered, visit your campus bookstore to buy your text books for the term. If using another service outside of the bookstore, to be safe, you should check with your professor to find out what edition of your text is being used and make sure the book you buy is the same edition: prices are great, but sales are final!

Student ID card

Once you registered, visit the Student Services office to get your student ID card.
