Will you receive a nonresident tuition scholarship?

Calculate your estimated eligibility for one of Boise State’s nonresident scholarships.

Since the scholarship calculator is based upon self-reported information, your final award is contingent upon receipt of your official admission materials in Boise State Admissions by the Scholarship Deadline. Your final scholarship will be based upon your cumulative, unweighted GPA as calculated by the University from your official high school transcripts and your official ACT or SAT test results.   The results of this calculator do not represent a binding University scholarship award; official Boise State University scholarship offers are sent to students after they are admitted to the University.

Please note that Boise State’s criteria for nonresident scholarships is currently undergoing its yearly review.  Updated criteria for fall 2018 will be posted in early April.

**SAT score representing the Total Score on the Redesigned 2016 SAT exam. Although this Admissions Index Calculator only uses scores from the Redesigned SAT, scores from both the prior and redesigned versions of the SAT are accepted by Boise State. The writing portion from either version of the SAT is not used for admission or scholarship consideration.
