 What is an “RAI score“?

Students from Iowa high schools must have a Regents Admission Index, or RAI, score of at least 245, and take the minimum number of required high school courses to qualify for automatic admission to ISU, UNI, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the U of I. The index combines factors that strongly predict success at Iowa’s Regent universities. An Alternative RAI Formula is offered for students whose high school does not provide class rank, such as Valley.
