Grading System

Grade Point Average

The grade point average is reported in two ways:

  • As the semester gpa is the calculation of all grades received in a single semester.
  • As the cumulative gpa is the calculation of all grades received while an undergraduate or a graduate student at the university.

If the student enrolled at more than one IU campus during an academic career, the cumulative GPA would reflect the student's Indiana University GPA, and not separate it by campus. Separate GPAs are calculated for undergraduate work and for graduate work, so if student pursued both an undergraduate degree and a graduate degree at IU, the GPA's would be calculated separately and both appear on the transcript.
