Calculate Your Eligibility Index

Once you calculate your GPA, you can use this formula to see if your GPA and test scores meet the minimum required eligibility index.

  • California residents (California high school graduate or a resident of California for tuition purposes) must have a minimum eligibility index of 2900 using SAT scores or 694 using ACT scores. (The SAT score component for CSU is the sum of the mathematics and critical reading scores. Neither ACT nor SAT writing scores are included in the calculation of the CSU Eligibility Index.)
  • California nonresidents or nongraduates of California high schools must have a minimum eligibility index of 3502 using SAT scores or 842 using ACT scores.
SAT Scores: ACT Scores:
(Your GPA ) x 800 + Your SAT Total

>>> My index is ______
(Your GPA ) x 200 + (10 x ACT Comp)

>>> My index is ______

If you apply for admission before you graduate from high school, you should compute your GPA using grades earned in "a-g" courses completed after the 9th grade. Do not include grades you expect to earn in courses you have not completed.
