Now what? If you are wondering what to do now and before the semester starts, use this guide to stay organized.

  1. Finalize Your Class Schedule You’re expected to finalize your class schedule each semester. If you’re on a waitlist, once a seat becomes available, you will automatically be added to the course and notified via BroncoMail. If you want to drop an unwanted course, do it as soon as possible so other students can add the courses they need.
  2. Pay Tuition and Fees Boise State does not mail paper bills, but you can check your fees due on my.boisestate.edu. You can pay your fees and charges in person, by phone, by mail, or online. On my.boisestate select “Student Center” on your my.boisestate.edu homepage. Navigate to the Finance Section in Student Center, select “Make a payment” and follow the directions.In person, by phone or by mail
    • Pay your bill using cash, check or credit card (VISA, Discover or MasterCard) in the Payment & Disbursement Center in the Administration Building, Room 101.
    • Pay fees by phone by calling the office at (208) 426-1212.
    • Mail payments to 1910 University Dr., A 101, Boise, ID 83725-1246.
    You can create a proxy access account on My.BoiseState if you want a family member to access the bill pay portal to pay bills and view your tax information. “Parent Login Instructions” are located just below the sign-in button. This proxy designation does not replace the Release of Information or Authorization to Disclose Protected Health Information.
  3. Buy Books Shopping at the Boise State University Bookstore, either online or in person, is the most convenient way to purchase books. The Bookstore provides new and used books, as well as a textbook rental program. There’s also an online price comparison feature so you know you are getting the best deal. Books can be purchased online and picked up in person or delivered to your home address or Chaffee Hall residence.If  you prefer a more traditional approach, print out your course schedule and visit the Bookstore in person for help from a knowledgeable staff member. For more information about textbooks, ebooks, buy-back programs, and more, visit Boise State Bookstore.
  4. Buy Parking Permit If you plan to park on campus, you’ll need to purchase a parking permit. Prices vary depending on where you choose to park.
