BOISE — More than 20,000 Idaho high school seniors have been accepted to Idaho’s public colleges and universities for fall 2018.

Students and parents can expect to receive admission letters within the next week, the Idaho State Board of Education announced Friday.

It’s the third year of the state board’s Direct Admissions Initiative. Students are accepted to schools based on their grade-point average and college entrance-exam score.

Students will still need to submit an application for schools they’re interested in.
