Part 2. How to calculate the Semester Index necessary to change your Graduation Index to a desired value.

  • Use this to calculate how your graduation index will change based on the semester index you receive.
  • You will need to know how many hours and points you have before this semester's grades are added to your graduation index. You can calculate those in part 1 or in some cases you can read them off your most recent grade card.
  • A grade in a second enrollment in a class replaces the grade and credits of the first enrollment in the class when calculating graduation index.
