Academic Requirements Report

The Academic Requirements Report provides students with a tool to evaluate where they are in fulfilling their College requirements.

What are the graduation requirements?

The graduate requirements are listed in each course catalog that is published. The requirements can be found in the Academic Program section of the Bryn Mawr Catalog or in the Academics section.

Where do I see my Academic Requirements Report?

You can access the Academic Requirements Report from your "Academic Progress" tile. Once there, click on the left side navigation tab for "Academic Progress." Your Academic Requirements report is displayed.

Tips when using the Academic Requirements Report?

  • Courses you have completed with a 2.0 or better and courses are you currently registered for will complete a requirement in the report. Completed requirements are marked "Satisfied." If you do not complete in progress courses with a 2.0 or better, they will not fulfill the requirement.
  • If a requirement is "satisfied," the requirement area will collapse and the requirement will display "satisfied." To view the courses used to complete the requirement click the ">" symbol (right-pointing arrow).
  • Requirements marked "Not Satisfied" have not been satisfied by the courses you have taken or are currently registered for.  Courses taken CR/NC must have a grade of 2.0 or greater to satisfy the requirement.
  • Sometimes you have taken more than one course that fulfills an approach, the first course you took will appear.
