Grade Point Average (GPA) and Class Rank Policy

Effective Spring Quarter 2015-16, the GPA is computed under the general University grading system and published on the official undergraduate transcript. Transcripts for students with coterminal degree programs publish only the undergraduate career GPA based upon the courses assigned to the undergraduate degree program. For undergraduates who graduated before 1986, the GPA is not included on the transcript.   

The GPA does not appear on the official graduate transcript.   

Stanford University does not calculate a rank in class.

For further information about how the internal General University GPA is determined, see How the General University GPA is Determined.
