  • When reviewing a high school transcript, we re-calculate a student’s GPA based on their college prep, honors or AP level courses only. We do not include courses that are based on performance such as physical education, health, music, etc.
  • When re-calculating a GPA we also give “extra credit” for higher-level courses. For example if you received a “B” in an honors course, we would consider this a “B+”. If you received a “B” in an AP or IB course, we would consider it an “A”.
