CTX 101: What Is My GPA?
“Grade point average” (GPA) is a word you will frequently encounter during your time at Concordia University Texas. There are different types of GPAs, and it’s important to know the difference because your GPA impacts your academics and career opportunities.
A cumulative GPA refers to your overall grade point average, including every higher education course you have completed at Concordia.
Certain programs like CTX honor societies look at the GPA you have for courses related to a certain area of study. For example, Lambda Pi Eta requires members to have a minimum GPA of 3.25 for all communication courses.
You also have access to your GPA for a specific term (semester). This can help you gauge your academic progress throughout your time at CTX.
