Each semester, the distinction of Pomona College Scholar is awarded to the top quarter of students in each class as determined by semester grade point average, who in the past semester: 1) completed at least three graded courses; 2) did not receive any incomplete (I) grades; and 3) did not receive any "no credit" (NC) grades in any course that is normally included in the grade-point average calculation.
The GPA cutoffs for Pomona College Scholars eligibility are recalculated every semester to determine the top 25 percent of each class, using the actual GPAs earned by students in each class. The chart below provides GPA cutoffs for recent semesters. Please note that these figures are provided for historical perspective only, and that future cutoffs depend on the actual GPAs earned by students in future semesters and cannot be determined in advance.
