GRADES: Grade-Point Average (GPA)
General scholarship is indicated by a Grade-Point Average (GPA), which is also referred to as the cumulative index or index. There are two types of GPA:
- the semester GPA, an average of all grades earned in one semester at the degree granting institution
- the cumulative GPA, an average of all grades earned during all semesters at the degree granting institution
Transfer grades are not included in the Hunter GPA. Effective in 2004, courses taken on permit at another CUNY college will be calculated into the Hunter GPA.
