GPA and Test Scores

If you’re like most applicants to UCI, you excelled in high school or your current higher education institution. Congratulations on your success!

But there’s more to a UCI student than a great academic record. At UCI, we also value uniqueness. So whether or not you have the highest GPA or college entrance exam scores, we want to know what distinguishes you from everyone else.

Use the following statistics as a general guide to selectivity and not as a predictor of your chance for admission to UCI.
