Accelerated Graduation

Some students enter Bryn Mawr having already earned some credits through exams such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A levels, and the like. If you enter Bryn Mawr with at least eight credits, you may want to consider accelerating your graduation.  If you are interested in this, you should discuss this option with your dean and faculty members in any departments you are considering majoring in.  Most commonly, students who do accelerate enter Bryn Mawr with a good idea of their majors and with credit for first-year courses in those fields The Special Cases Committee must approve all requests for accelerated graduation. . 

Students who plan to complete the degree in seven semesters may work out the details with their deans and major advisers and need not petition the Committee.  Such students do not accelerate officially and will receive their degrees in May with their classmates.

Many other students will choose to complete eight full semesters at Bryn Mawr in order to take full advantage of the resources and opportunities here.
