About the Scholarship Index Score

Eligibility for academic scholarships is determined by your 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 Weber State to be used for scholarship consideration. When you sign up to take the test, you can choose to have scores sent directly to a few colleges at no cost. Using this option to send scores to Weber is an easy way to make sure we have them.

Also, Weber State offers a residual ACT you can take to try to improve your score. For more information, go to https://weber.edu/TestingCenter/act.html.
