Optional statement from the institution:   If you're applying for admission to Iowa State University as a freshman, your admission will be based primarily on your Regent Admission Index (RAI) score. Below is the equation for computing your RAI score:

(2 x ACT composite score) + (1 x percentile high school rank) + (20 x high school GPA) + (5 x number of years of high school core courses) = Regent Admission Index (RAI) Score

Note: For purposes of calculating the RAI, SAT scores will be converted to ACT composite equivalents, 99% is the top value for high school rank, 4.00 is the top value for GPA, and the number of high school core courses completed is expressed in terms of years or fractions of years (e.g., one semester equals 0.5 year). Applicants who do not possess all of the required factors will be evaluated on an individual basis.

If you meet Iowa State's minimum high school course requirements and you earn an RAI score of at least 245, you will automatically qualify for admission to Iowa State University. If you meet the minimum high school course requirements and earn an RAI score below 245, you may still be offered admission, but your application will be reviewed on an individual basis.
