Admissions Nonresident Index Calculator

Will you be admitted to Boise State?

As a nonresident of Idaho, the Boise State Admissions Index is used to evaluate your admissibility to Boise State based on a combination of your high school GPA and ACT or SAT scores. High school graduates under the age of 21 (prior to the first day of the semester you want to attend Boise State) will be considered for admission according to Boise State’s Admission Index and can use the calculator to learn about eligibility. Since the admissions calculator is based upon self-reported information, your admissions status is contingent upon receipt of your official admission materials. The final admission determination will be based upon your cumulative, unweighted GPA as calculated by the University from official high school transcripts, and your official ACT or SAT test results. Possible candidates may submit recommendations and a personal statement for a more comprehensive review. The results of the admission calculator do not represent a binding University admission offer.
