Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is Get Connected mandatory?
A: In 2008 the University administration determined that all new students are expected to participate in Get Connected.Your BYU-Idaho experience starts with Get Connected. As a new student you should plan now to fully participate in your Get Connected experience.
Q: The Get Connected schedule shows it lasts two days -are the days repeated?
A: No, each day is different. The first day is "Move-In Day" -parents are invited to participate in the events on this day, especially the BYU-Idaho Welcome. The second day is for new students only, and includes more events that help students prepare to have a good experience at BYU-Idaho.
Q: Is registration required for Get Connected? How do I register for it?
A: As a new student you will need to register for Get Connected, but not until you arrive on campus. The main registration takes place during Move-in Day, but late registration is held on the morning of the second day as well. You can register for Get Connected with an "I-Rep", a student volunteer wearing a blue polo. Refer to the online schedule for the specific registration times and locations -you may also come in contact with an I-Rep at your apartment complex, and they will be able to register you there.
Q: What is an I-Team? What I-Team am I in?
A: All new students are grouped into what are called I-Teams. Each I-Team consists of approximately 20 or more new students (co-ed). You can find out your I-Team when you register for Get Connected. I-Team Leaders should also stop by your apartment complex and leave a flyer for you letting you know which I-Team you are in. Specialized I-Teams have been created for transfer students and married students new to BYU-Idaho.
Q: Do I need my I-card on the first day?
A: No, your I-card is not needed on the first day. In fact, we recommend you wait until the lines die down after school starts. All you need for the first week is your I-Number and a photo ID.
