What qualifies a student as "high-achieving" or academically ''outstanding''?

QuestBridge -

QuestBridge Finalists are motivated students who challenge themselves by taking and excelling in their high school's most rigorous courses. We, as well as our college partners, look at many different factors when assessing a student's academics, including grades, class rank, high school courses taken, standardized test scores, teacher recommendations, and other markers of talent and motivation.

Students interested in applying to our college partners through the Match can also visit our college partners' websites for more specifics regarding their academic standards.

For more information, please see the Who Should Apply page and our profile of last year's National College Match Finalists.
