If your scores fall within or above the ranges in the table above ranges, you're on target for admission to one of these Idaho colleges. If your scores are slightly below the range presented in the table, don't lose all hope -- remember that 25% of enrolled students have SAT scores below those listed.

Be sure to keep the SAT in perspective. The exam is just one part of the application, and a strong academic record is even more important than test scores. Many of the colleges will also be looking for a winning essay, meaningful extracurricular activities and good letters of recommendation

Idaho doesn't have a lot of four-year colleges, but prospective students do have a wide range of options from a large state university to small Christian colleges. If no scores are listed for a school you're interested in, it probably means that that school is test-optional. For those schools, you are not required to submit any scores.

You can if you want, of course, and it is recommended if your scores are good. In some cases, in order to be considered for scholarships, an applicant is required to submit scores at an otherwise test-optional college. 

To visit a profile for each school, just click on its name in the table above. There you'll find information about admissions, financial aid, popular majors, graduation/retention rates, athletics, and more.
