Grading System

Grade Point Average (GPA)

The grade point average is determined by multiplying the credit hours by the credit points for each course completed, adding up all the products, and dividing the sum of the products by the number of credit hours in which credit points were received.

The School of Education calculates two GPAs: the University GPA includes all course work taken at Indiana University. The Degree GPA includes only courses counted in the program. In both cases, a minimum 2.5 GPA is required. Each professional and content or area of concentration course must be completed with a C or higher and a 2.5 overall.
