CSI and ISU sign partnership agreement

Release Date: Thursday 2021-02-11

TWIN FALLS – College of Southern Idaho students who want to continue their education will
now have a smoother transition to Idaho State University thanks to a Memorandum of
Understanding between the two institutions.

Through the agreement, students will be able to work toward a degree at Idaho State and track
their progress while attending CSI. The collaborative move by the two institutions reduces
barriers to students transferring between the institutions.

“We are partners in education,” said Idaho State President Kevin Satterlee. “This partnership
exponentially increases opportunities for students at CSI and opens doors to their future. Our
agreement will meet immediate needs for a skilled and trained workforce in the Magic Valley
and beyond.”

Idaho State University has had a presence on the CSI campus for 28 years, and the institutions
have always worked to ensure that students were able to transfer easily. For example, in Fall
2020, 88 CSI students transferred to Idaho State. The new agreement is designed to streamline
the process even further, and to offer expanded opportunities from both institutions.

The agreement also helps ensure that comprehensive support systems are in place for students
wishing to transfer to Idaho State to receive their bachelor degree.

“It's gratifying to work with transfer partners who make the student's success their priority. I
appreciate the collaboration of Idaho State University's president and his team who have worked
with CSI to establish a broad framework for cooperative admission and clear transfer guarantees
for our students. This agreement serves Idaho's students well now, and for the future,” said CSI
President Dean L. Fisher.
