Join the UC Davis 2016 Spring quarter pool!


  • 2016 Spring Quarter begins: March 24.
  • Registration for CollegeBetter Spring pool closes: April 11 at 11PM.
  • Spring quarter ends: June 9.


Are you a UC Davis undergraduate committed to the goal of raising your cumulative GPA by the end of the Spring quarter? Here are the rules for the 2016 Spring pool:
  1. The buy-in fee for the Spring pool is $20. If you fail to raise your cumulative GPA by the end of the Spring quarter, you will forfeit your $20 buy-in. If you succeed, you will split the pot of buy-in fees with all other students who also successfully raised their cumulative GPAs. Note that the worst outcome that can happen should you successfully achieve the goal is that you get your money back.
  2. You must be taking 12 or more units toward a letter grade in the Spring quarter.
  3. You must have been enrolled at UC Davis for at least one quarter prior to the Spring 2016 Quarter.
Important Note: We are still in the research and development phase of CollegeBetter. We also face several budget constraints. Thus, we may not be able to accept everyone who applies. Depending on interest, we may have to implement a randomization mechanism. Once the pool closes, we will notify all participants who completed the application form below and submitted the buy-in fee whether they received a spot in the pool. Of course, students who were not randomly selected will receive their buy-in fee back.
