Satisfactory Academic Progress
Like all colleges, Bryn Mawr has a set of defined measures which constitute Satisfactory Academic Progress. These are established by the Bryn Mawr Faculty, in compliance with regulations set by the Department of Education.
The process of monitoring satisfactory academic progress is overseen by the Committee on Academic Standing (CAS), a small board of faculty and deans designed to help students who encounter academic difficulties. The committee convenes at the close of every semester to review student records and identify paths forward when they discover that a student is not making satisfactory academic progress towards the degree.
