    Students who choose to register with the general degree seeking population must sign an agreement indicating they are opting out of use of the senior citizen rate. To receive the senior citizen rate, first apply for admission, then request the Idaho Senior Citizen‘s Fee Reduction from the Payment and Disbursement Center, Administration Building, Room 101, or call (208) 426-1212 by providing the cashier your driver‘s license, birth certificate, or other proof of your age.
