Use this formula to see if your grade point average and test scores meet the required eligibility index:

SAT I Scores: (Your GPA)* x 800 + Your SAT I Total = Your Index

ACT Scores: (Your GPA)* x 200 + (10 x ACT Comp) = Your Index

* Based on grades earned in all approved college preparatory "A-G" courses after the 9th grade

  • Up to eight semesters of honors courses taken in the last two years of high school will be granted additional points (an A in an honors course will receive a total of 5 points; B, 4 points; C, 3 points; D, 1 point).
  • California High School Graduates or California Residents must have a minimum index of 2900 using SAT I scores or 694 using ACT scores.
  • Non- CA High School Graduates or non- CA Residents must have a minimum index of 3502 using SAT I scores or 842 using ACT scores.
