were based on the university's reputation, selectivity, faculty resources,
financial resources and student satisfaction.
Also in 1990, ISU was ranked first in the nation of Certified Public Accountants
(CPA) examinations. ISU had a 69.6% pass rate, more than three times the
national average of 21.9%. The statistics are based on students taking
the exams for the first time.

post-secondary technical institute in the state of Idaho providing technical
