Each semester, the registrar calculates your GPA, both for that individual semester and cumulatively, for all the semesters you have been enrolled at Bryn Mawr.
Please note that for determining eligibility for the two highest graduation honors (magna cum laude and summa cum laude), grades behind CR/NC are included.
Most Bryn Mawr courses are worth 1.0 units. There are a few courses (mostly intensive languages) worth 1.5 units and quarter classes are worth 0.5 units. The number of units for the course can be found on your transcript or by looking at your courses in Virtual Bryn Mawr.
Bryn Mawr courses are graded on a 4.0 scale. If you have questions about the letter equivalent grade, please reference the grading scale.
GPA = total grade points / total attempted units
M. Carey Thomas got the following grades for the Fall semester:
|Course||Number of Units||Grade||Total Grade Point*|
|ANTH B101||1.0 units||3.7||3.7|
|BIOL B110||0.5 units||3.0||1.5|
|BIOL B111||0.5 units||3.3||1.65|
|HIST H220||1.0 units||4.0||4.0|
|FREN B001 IN||1.5 units||3.7||5.55|
|MATH B104||1.0 units||CR||---|
* Total grade points is the grade multiplied by the number of units.
Her total number of units taken was 5.5, but she took MATH B104 CR/NC which does not count towards her GPA. Therefore, for calcuating the GPA we divide by 4.5 (excluding the 1.0 unit counted as CR).
