How are GPA trends calculated if undergrad took more than four years and there's a gap? My first go at college I went for a year and a half before getting a job relevant to my major. After a few years I decided to go back to school, but major in something else. None of my credits applied toward graduation for my new major, so it took me four years after returning to school to graduate. In total, it took me five and a half years of school to graduate with a multiple-year break between my third and fourth semesters. How would my GPA for each year be noted? Will my sophomore GPA be comprised of two semesters that are half a decade apart? Will my last three years just be considered my senior GPA?
