Pitzer exempts students graduating in the top 10% of their class, or those who have an unweighted cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher in academic subjects (i.e., courses in the humanities, mathematics, sciences and social sciences), from having to submit standardized tests (i.e., ACT or SAT). Applicants not falling into either one of those categories will be required to submit at least one of the following options:
       --ACT scores, or
       --SAT I scores, or
       --Two or more Advanced Placement test scores of at least 4 (one must be in English or English Language, and one in mathematics or a natural science), or
       --Two International Baccalaureate exams: one must be in English 1A and one must be in the Mathematics Methods (Standard Level), or a higher-level course in mathematics, or
       --Two exams: One recent junior or senior year graded, analytical writing sample from a humanities or social science course, AND a graded mathematics examination, preferably a final or end-of-semester exam in the most advanced mathematics course possible. The samples must include the teacher’s comments, grades, and the assignment.

J. Disciplinary Areas of DEGREES CONFERRED

J1. Degrees conferred between July 1, 2007 and June 30, 2008

For each of the following discipline areas, provide the percentage of diplomas/certificates, associate, and bachelor’s degrees awarded. To determine the percentage, use majors, not headcount (e.g., students with one degree but a double major will be represented twice). Calculate the percentage from your institution’s IPEDS Completions by using the sum of 1st and 2nd majors for each CIP code as the numerator and the sum of the Grand Total by 1st Majors and the Grand Total by 2nd major as the denominator. If you prefer, you can compute the percentages using 1st majors only.
