Course Sequence Roadmaps

Roadmaps have been built for sequences of courses offered through Idaho Digital Learning Alliance that lead students to an industry certificate, align with a specific program of study at an Idaho college or university, or a full Associates Degree program at an Idaho college or university. Students interested in one of these opportunities should work with their counselor to build the roadmap into their course plan. This will ensure they can complete courses in the appropriate sequence.

Visit the Course Catalog for course descriptions and schedule.
