Academic success is in your hands

Learn how to monitor your academic performance and ensure you’re getting the grades you need to complete your degree.

Final grades

Instructors can turn in final grades as soon as the class is over but must report these within four days of your last class meeting or final exam. You might be able to see grades earlier, depending on when your instructor submits them.

Final semester grades are validated and become official approximately one week after the end of the term.  Your updated credit hours earned and semester and overall (cumulative) GPA will be available on your official transcript at that time.

Your class standing

Generally, the number of IU course hours you’ve completed with a passing grade and any transfer hours you may have earned outside of the IU system are added together to determine your class standing.

In some cases, your standing may be determined by where you are in your program instead. This is especially true if you’ve changed majors and a significant number of your hours won’t apply to your new major.

Class standings are:

  • Freshman: 0–29 hours
  • Sophomore: 30–59 hours
  • Junior: 60–89 hours
  • Senior: 90+ hours
  • Graduate/masters
  • Doctorate beyond graduate level
  • Thesis G900
  • Special undergraduate/graduate
