Here’s how to calculate your cumulative grade point average (lovingly known as your CPGA) so listen up! It’s easy! Most colleges are on a 4.0 grading scale. What does this mean?

Innovative Ideas for Targeted Advising Campaigns Student Populations Targeted in Previous SSC Campaigns Campaign Example Filters Action At-risk students that may need to switch majors Risk: High risk Credits Earned: 30-45 Encourage students to evaluate their academic performance and consider a major change Undeclared students above a certain credit threshold Major: Undeclared, Pre-major Credits Earned: At least 30, 45, or 60 credits (depending on the institution) Help students select the appropriate major and declare as soon as possible High-performing students not currently enrolled in coursework Cumulative GPA: Over 3.00 Term Enrollment: Currently not enrolled Figure out why students are not enrolled and get them back into classes Seniors with excessive credits Student Classification: Senior Credits Earned: At least 120 Help students determine what requirements they still need to fulfill to graduate and how to fulfill them quickly Pre-majors that are at risk of not meeting selective admissions requirements Exact filters will vary by major Possible Pre-Majors: PreNursing, Pre-Engineering, PreBusiness Encourage students to prepare a “Plan B” and seek academic support to improve performance Students close to graduating that may need additional assistance Credits Earned: At least 90 Risk: Medium risk or high risk Connect students with the resources they need to finish out their degrees Students who may not have been advised recently (for institutions that use student statuses Student Status: “No action taken” Check in on students that the platform suggests may not have been advised recently “Stop outs” that could return and graduate easily Term Enrollment: Currently not enrolled Risk: Low risk Credits Earned: At least 90 Motivate students to re-enroll and complete their degrees Potential recruits for the honors program Term Enrollment: Currently enrolled Risk: Low risk # of Notifications: Less than 2 Cumulative GPA: Over 3.70 Discuss strong academic performance and potential enrollment in the honors program High-performing students for recruitment to a particular major Term Enrollment: Currently enrolled Risk: Low risk Major: Undeclared Ensure high-performing students know they are capable of taking on challenging majors frequently) If you have other ideas for targeted advising campaigns, send them to your SSC consultant! ©2014 The Advisory Board Company • eab.com 5
