*Class rank of graduating classes combines all Day Division, Evening Division, and Part-time Day Division students graduating in July, December and May.

**In some instances, the GPA cutoff for the reporting category had to be extended past the hundredths column (2nd decimal column).  In those instances, rounding to the hundredths column creates a tie among two or more students.  In order to avoid ties, the GPA cut-offs have been extended to four decimal places.  An example is provided below.

Example: There is more than one student in the Class of 2016 Day whose GPA rounds to 3.68.  In order to distinguish between those students, GPAs have been calculated to four decimal places.  Only those students at a cumulative average of 3.6845 or above can report that they are in the Top 10 percent.  A student with a cumulative GPA of 3.6844 would report that he or she is in the Top 11 percent.
