Composite Admission Index Score

Composite Admission Index Score


Freshmen and transfer students with less than 24 hours of college credit must achieve a Composite Admission Index (CAI) score of at least 60 and have at least a 2.00 cumulative unweighted GPA.  Your CAI is calculated by multiplying the unweighted GPA by 20, then adding the ACT score (SAT scores are converted to the equivalent ACT score).  [Note: the GPA portion of the score can contribute a maximum of 50 points to the calculated score.]

Examples

The following examples display each step of how the CAI is calculated using Unweighted GPA & ACT Score.

GPA = 3.00; ACT = 19

  • CAI = min(GPA*20, 50) + ACT
  • CAI = min(3.00*20, 50) + 19
  • CAI = min(60, 50) + 19
  • CAI = 50 + 19
  • CAI = 69

Student is admissible.

GPA = 2.40; ACT = 20

  • CAI = min(GPA*20, 50) + ACT
  • CAI = min(2.40*20, 50) + 20
  • CAI = min(48, 50) + 20
  • CAI = 48 + 20
  • CAI = 68
Student is admissible.

GPA = 1.90; ACT = 22

A minimum GPA of 2.00 is required, regardless of CAI score.

GPA = 2.10; ACT = 17

  • CAI = min(GPA*20, 50) + ACT
  • CAI = min(2.10*20, 50) + 17
  • CAI = min(42, 50) + 17
  • CAI = 42 + 17
  • CAI = 59

Student is currently ineligible for admission because the CAI is not greater than or equal to 60.

 

SAT scores will be converted to an equivalent ACT score.
