Grade Point Average (GPA) and Class Rank Policy

Note that the GPA (grade point average) and rank in class are not officially computed under the general University grading system. The GPA does not appear on the official transcript, and it is not released outside the University. Stanford University does not calculate a rank in class.

Stanford does use an internal-only GPA that is based on units completed at the time of conferral. This information is used for internal purposes only and is not displayed on the official transcript. For further information about how the internal General University GPA is determined, see How the General University GPA is Determined.
