Merit Scholarship Calculator

More than 90% of our full-time, freshman students receive financial assistance in the form of scholarships and grants. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the scholarship calculator, the amount below is an estimate. Your actual award will be based on your cumulative grade point average, ACT/SAT test score, and class rank (if applicable), when you apply for admission.


In order to provide a Merit Scholarship estimate, you will need to provide three pieces of information:

  • Your cumulative high school GPA
  • Your class rank and class size
  • Your ACT Composite Score or combined SAT reading and mathematics sub-scores
Please note: the Merit Scholarship estimate below is only for freshmen entering Dominican University in Fall of 2018.
For this next section, you will be asked to enter any test scores that you have for the ACT and / or the SAT.
Enter your highest composite ACT score, and / or your highest combined SAT score for Reading and Math.
If you took both tests, enter both scores, and we'll pick the one that gives you the most money.

(The total value is between 400 and 1600)
