Items of Note:
- Courses taken outside UT Tyler are not computed into a student's grade point average.
- GPA values are truncated at two decimal places - no rounding is done prior to truncation.
- Cumulative GPA values do not 'reset' if a student begins a subsequent program on the same career (Undergraduate or Graduate), such as a Second Baccalaureate or post-Master's certification program. The cumulative GPA on each student's undergraduate or graduate record will reflect all coursework taken at that level, regardless of which program the the coursework was associated with.
- Degree GPA values, which are part of the degree posting block on each student's transcript, are stand-alone items representing the cumulative GPA at the time each degree was awarded. As such, they do not change as a result of any future coursework on the same career.
Example: A student completes a Master's degree in Fall 2007 with a 3.50 cumulative GPA, a Second Master's degree in Summer 2010 with a 3.55 cumulative GPA, and further coursework toward a post-Master's certification in Spring 2012, increasing their cumulative GPA to 3.60. This student's transcript would reflect the following GPA information at the end of each term listed:
- Fall 2007: A single degree posting with a 3.50 GPA, and a 3.50 cumulative GPA.
- Summer 2010: Two degree postings with GPA values of 3.50 and 3.55, respectively, and a cumulative GPA of 3.55.
- Spring 2012: Two degree postings with GPA values of 3.50 and 3.55, respectively, and a cumulative GPA of 3.60.
