International Students


Boise State welcomes students from around the world and values the diversity that international students bring to campus. A vibrant international student population translates to a stronger multicultural experience for all students.

Boise State University is located in the state capital of Idaho, a dynamic western city of over 200,000 in a metropolitan area of 587,000. Boise has all the advantages of a big city such as good medical services, entertainment and transportation, without the big-city worries of high crime and pollution. English is the predominant language spoken and the cultural experience is truly American.
