What is my Major GPA? What are the differences between my Major GPA and my UI GPA?

The College of Engineering does not calculate your exact Major GPA. The closest GPA to this is your GPA of courses applied towards your degree, which is found on page 1 of your degree evaluation.

This is calculated from the grades in all courses you have taken for the BSE degree, i.e. calculus, social science/humanities, rhetoric, chemistry, and engineering courses. It does not include the courses in your course pool, i.e. Ballroom Dancing, Scuba Diving, Trigonometry, etc.

  • UI GPA includes only courses you have taken at the University of Iowa. 
  • Transfer GPA includes only courses you have taken outside of the University of Iowa.
  • Cumulative GPA includes all college course work you have taken (UI and transfer)
