Setting Up Special Grade Point Averages

To set up special grade point averages, use the Student Special GPA component (SPECIAL_GPA_TYPE).

Every institution has its own unique way of calculating grade point averages. Special grade point averages are averages that you define for your institution that differ from the cumulative grade point average. You can enter special grade point averages for a student's academic program, academic plan, or academic subplan. You can then use these special grade point averages to meet your institution's analysis and reporting needs.

This section lists the page used to set up special grade point averages.
