Grading System

GPA and Credit Hour Calculations

Only courses with grades of A+ through D- and F are used in calculating a Grade Point Average (GPA). P and S grades are passing grades in completed courses, but are not used in calculation of a GPA. Courses taken at other non-IU institutions are not used in calculating the IU GPA.

A student's grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the sum of all grade points earned by the sum of all credit hours attempted. Note that only Indiana University courses, regardless of the campus where they were taken, are counted in the GPA. To calculate grade points, multiply the credit hours for each course by the numerical equivalent of the grade.
