*Whitworth uses weighted GPAs (either from transcripts or calculated internally) to determine academic scholarships. If a weighted GPA is not available on a student's high school transcript, Whitworth will weight all honors, AP and IB classes on a 4.5 scale. Whitworth super-scores test score results, combining the highest sub-scores from either the old SAT, the new SAT or the ACT. Sub-scores from different tests cannot be combined. All Whitworth-sponsored aid is for tuition only.

For home-schooled students: Whitworth will consider the GPA from accredited home-schooled programs and/or scores on the SAT or ACT. For students home-schooled in programs that are not accredited, Whitworth awards these scholarships based solely on the SAT or ACT score.
