About the Scholarship Index Score
Eligibility for academic scholarships is determined by a student's index score, which is a combination of GPA and ACT or SAT scores. See the New Freshman 'INDEX CHART' to determine scholarship eligibility.
Sending ACT/SAT Scores
Make sure to send all ACT/SAT scores to WSU to be used for scholarship consideration. As students sign up to take the test they are given the opportunity to have scores sent directly to a few colleges at no cost. Using this option to send scores to WSU is an easy way to make sure we have them. In addition, WSU offers a residual ACT that students can take to try to improve their scores. For more information about the residual ACT test go to http://weber.edu/TestingCenter/act.html.
During the day, park on the north side of the Dee Event center and hop on the free shuttle. Starting at 3:30 p.m., parking is available in any A or W parking lot on campus. The A10, W7, and W8 will be the closest parking lots. For a map of campus, click here.
This is a great day, so come join us, check out Weber State University, and claim your scholarship!
