An ISU Registration Hold is in place for all new ISU freshmen. The hold prevents course enrollment until you complete an online Freshmen Fundamenteals of Advising & Registration (FAR) session. The Registration Hold will be removed within 24 hours after the session has been completed (Monday - Friday).

There are two options for completion of your session:

  1. Online Only:
  2. Online and With Advisor Assistance:
    • Complete the online session and call (208) 282-3277 to reserve a seat in the informative in-person FAR and Course Scheduling session taking place on the Pocatello campus: Central Academic Advising, Museum Building: Rm. 307.
