College of Eastern Idaho is a community college in Idaho Falls, Idaho, United States. It was founded in 1969 as Eastern Idaho Vocational Technical School, and later became a technical college called Eastern Idaho Technical College. In May 2017, Bonneville County residents voted to a create a community college district allowing Eastern Idaho Technical College to become a community college.[1] In July 2017, the Idaho State Board of Education appointed five community college trustees and completed the transition to community college.[2][3]

The college's divisions include: Business, Office, and Technology; Health Professions; Trades and Industry; and General Education. Eastern Idaho Technical College also offers courses in adult basic education, GED testing and workforce training. Currently, the College of Eastern Idaho also awards an Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Arts, which is designed to serve students seeking to continue their education at a four-year university.

Currently, the district of the College of Eastern Idaho includes only Bonneville County. On November 7th voters in Bingham County had the opportunity to join the community college district. However, the proposal was defeated. [5][6][7]
