Ricks name change could happen this fall

REXBURG, Idaho (AP) — Even though a date has not been set, Ricks College anticipates changing its name to Brigham Young University-Idaho sometime in September.

"Until then you'll probably hear us say we're 'becoming BYU-Idaho,' " said spokesman Don Sparhawk.

The name change is contingent on several factors, including news about the school's accreditation from the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges. Accreditation would allow the college to move forward with plans to offer 46 four-year degrees.
