We use the un-weighted HS GPA. Why? A weighted GPA is not considered because there are no national or state standards for weighting GPA’s.
Students who pursue more difficult classes in high school are typically much better prepared for college coursework. In some cases, AP classes in high school will satisfy introductory class requirements here at the University of Idaho. Several of those classes could potentially add up and save all or part of a semester. Information about AP classes is available on the UI Registrar’s website at http://www.uidaho.edu/registrar/transfer/ap.
We use the highest test score, HS GPA, or Transfer GPA received by our admissions office.
If the improved GPA/test score qualifies you for a higher level of funding, then we will adjust your award to the new level upon receipt of your final official documentation.
