Calculate your Scholarship

The Scholarship Calculator below is a tool that offers a quick and easy way to estimate your academic scholarship eligibility.  For freshmen, these academic scholarships are based on a combination of a student's cumulative GPA and scores on the SAT or ACT.  Simply provide your cumulative GPA and test score.  No additional application is required.

Here's a bonus for you - at UC we superscore, which means we combine subscores from tests taken on different dates. That means we will take your best subscores from the ACT.  Your superscored composite will be automatically calculated for you.  With regards to the SAT, we will superscore scores from the same version of the test. Old SAT (prior to March 2016) scores will be superscored with old scores and New SAT scores with new scores.

TIP: You can continue submitting new test scores up until the first day of class to increase your award.
