HOW TO REPORT GPA ON SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS
To know what option will work best, we recommend you contact the scholarship organization
for their best recommendation with providing a GPA when Alverno does not offer letter
OPTION 1: Student provides an official or unofficial transcript (referred to “course history”)
to scholarship organization in place of GPA. Official transcripts are available for
a fee through the Registrar’s Office. The official transcript includes a lead page
that explains Alverno’s grading policy, then includes course history and validations.
The course history is available free of charge through IOL.
OPTION 2: Student writes “N/A” or “0.0” in the field that requests GPA.
If one of the options above is not allowable, the student should contact the Registrar's
Office to submit a release and obtain a GPA conversion. GPA conversions are free.
They usually take about 2 weeks, or longer during breaks.
The individuals who you ask to write you a recommendation letter for an internal or
institutional scholarship (including faculty/staff) have the option to provide a traditional
letter of recommendation or use the
Internal Scholarship Recommendation Form. NOTE: This form is only accepted for internal scholarships.
This pdf booklet ( SCHOLARSHIP GUIDE ) will help you with tips on applying for outside scholarships. It also lists several
national search sites, which can help you get started with your scholarship search.
