Dixie State University awards Academic Scholarships to 2019 High School graduates based on High School GPA & ACT. The formula is simple, take your cumulative GPA multiplied by 10 and add your ACT score. (Example: If you have a 3.8 GPA and a 27 ACT… 3.8 x 10 = 38 + 27 for a score of 65)

Now, match your score with the Scholarship Grid or table below to see what your scholarship will be. Remember, you must be admitted to apply for a scholarship.
