College of Eastern Idaho (CEI), one of four Idaho community colleges, serves our eastern Idaho region by offering Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) transfer degrees in addition to our growing technical Associate of Applied Science (AAS) programs. CEI is committed to improving the “go-on” rate of high school graduates to college in eastern Idaho. We are also committed to working with local school districts to create dual credit opportunities and a seamless transition from high school, to CEI, and on to four-year degrees and a wonderful career.
CEI proudly supports our honored veterans and active duty military members and is a champion of building steps toward credit for prior learning in Idaho.
As CEI’s President, I am privileged to continue this important work by ensuring our students thrive in a diverse and dynamic environment that supports their success. We aim to fully represent what it means to be a community college, and strive to find unique and innovative ways to serve our nine-county region. We are committed to collaborating with you as a student to help you succeed in any educational path you choose. As an open-access college, we welcome anyone into our College to help them meet their personal goals.
Our faculty and staff are committed to the mission of CEI, “to provide open-access to affordable, quality education that meets the needs of students, regional employers, and community.” Our technical programs are designed to promote regional economic development by meeting employer needs for trained workers. Our Associate degrees are built in partnership with universities around the state to ensure our students are prepared to move forward in their education journey. We work closely with local business and industry to create customized training for workforce development, and offer an array of industry-recognized certifications.
As we continue to grow, CEI has placed more emphasis on online learning while maintaining traditional face-to-face methods. We are committed to providing any of our students access to counseling and advising, whether on campus or virtually through our online systems. We are dedicated to the success of our students, their job readiness and their life enrichment opportunities.
We are the shortest distance between where you are and where you want to be.
Welcome to College of Eastern Idaho. We’re glad you’re here!
