Last summer was one of the most severe fire seasons in Idaho and in the West, unfortunately this year seems to be following in last year’s footsteps. In order to accommodate for the wildfire season, Boise State will be extending deadlines for firefighters for admissions, registration, fee payment, housing check-in and dropping or adding a class.
Enrollment Services will be coordinating all requests for extension and will notify the appropriate departments and faculty. Faculty have been asked to allow students who are fighting fires time to catch up on any missed assignments. However, this is not possible for all courses. In courses where it is not reasonable to make up a missed assignment, the student will be withdrawn from the class without a penalty or fee. No assignments will be waived.
Boise State understands these students’ responsibility to protect Idaho’s natural resources.
Firefighters will receive an extension through Monday, Sept. 9. For assistance or more information, students or family should contact Enrollment Services by calling 426-2384 or by visiting their office located on the second floor of the Administration Building.
