Recalculated GPA for First-year Applicants

How does the University of Michigan calculate the GPA for first-year applicants?

We do not use a weighted GPA scale in our evaluation process. We will convert all first-year applicants' GPA to an unweighted 4.0 scale using all classes in 9th through 11th grades, and we use only the absolute value of the grade in the recalculation process (A+ or A or A- = 4.0).

We review the number of demanding courses separately, and during the holistic selection process the rigor of the applicant's curriculum is taken into consideration.

While each completed application receives a comprehensive, holistic, individualized review, we do provide a first-year admitted student profile showing statistics of our past admitted students in our viewbook. Please note that even if these guidelines are met, there is no guarantee of admission.
