Established in 2017, the University of Idaho Global Student Success Program is designed for international students who need additional academic and/or English language support to gain entry to a bachelor’s or master’s degree program. Students in the GSSP complete academic coursework alongside American students while accessing additional student support to help them adjust to life in the United States.

Upon successful completion of the program, undergraduate students will move directly into the second year of their undergraduate degree program and graduate students will have accumulated 12 academic credits toward their master’s degree program at the University of Idaho. 

Undergraduate students focus their studies in the following academic colleges:

  • Agricultural and Life Sciences
  • Business and Economics
  • Engineering
  • Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences
