College of Western Idaho students looking to further their education will have the opportunity to transfer to the College of Idaho with a new partnership called Yote Track.
CWI students interested in continuing their education on this track will get benefits like access to C of I’s Cruzen-Murray Library. This new program includes automatic admission for CWI students with a 3.0 GPA or higher.
“It’s really crucial that students in the state of Idaho and elsewhere do their very best to finish out a full four-year educational experience,” said David Douglass, C of I vice president of academic affairs. “To that end, we’ve initiated this relationship.”
Both college presidents have been working for about 18 months to get the program going.
“It is really an advanced opportunity for students to have the kind of experience and opportunity to go on to a premiere, four-year liberal arts college that really has student success invested in them from day one,” said Bert Glandon, CWI president. “We’re very proud, and we’re honored, and we’re privileged to be able to say we are a partner with the College of Idaho.”
As students work to finish an associate degree at the CWI, the Yote Track allows them other benefits like:
Automatic admission to C of I upon successful completion of an associate of arts or associate of science degree with a 3.0 or higher GPA
Dedicated C of I transfer enrollment counselor to facilitate the application and admission process
Free admission to select Yote athletic events
15% discount at the college store
Coordinated academic advising between CWI and C of I
Priority registration during transfer term
