GPA Definitions

The Overall Grade Point Average (GPA) includes FGCU and transfer credits and grades. Courses with satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading and courses taken for audit are not included in this calculation.

The Institutional GPA (or Cumulative GPA in Gulfline) includes FGCU credits and grades. The institutional GPA is used to determine academic standing, eligibility for numerous recognitions including the Honors program, athletics eligibility, and honors at graduation.  This Cumulative GPA is noted by term and is updated (increased or decreased) by the additional earned institutional hours.  Last calculated cumulative term GPA equals institutional GPA.

The Transfer GPA includes all transfer credits and grades accepted by FGCU.

GPAs are truncated, not rounded, to the second decimal place.
