CSU Eligibility Index

Calculate Your CSU Eligibility Index

Once you calculate your grade point average, you can use this formula to see if your grade point average and test scores meet the minimum required eligibility index.  California residents must have a minimum eligibility index of 2900 using SAT scores or 694 using ACT scores.

**Neither ACT nor SAT writing scores are included in the calculation of the CSU Eligibility Index.)**

Using SAT Scores (not with writing):

Your GPA  x 800 + Your SAT Total = Your Index 


Using ACT Scores (not with writing):

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

Updated CSU Eligibility Index 

Major Selection @ CSU

All CSU campuses admit student's according to major.  Each major at each campus will have a different Eligibility Index required for admission.  A good rule of thumb is to apply for the major that you are most interested in, but choose an alternate major that is not impacted (if possible).  Keep in mind that Cal Poly Pomona, our local CSU, will look at intended major ONLY.
