ARMS Tracks two different GPAs on the Student-Athlete profile

  • Cumulative GPA (by Term)

  • Term GPA

These GPAs are used for monitoring PTD, as well as Academic Portal Reporting via the APP Export in NCAA Reporting.

Cumulative GPA

ARMS does not calculate this GPA, as it should be provided by the institution at the completion of each term. You can find this GPA stored in the Progress Towards Degree widget on the SA profile and at the top Academics Summary, as a read only field. The value presented at the top of the profile will display the most recently received Cumulative GPA.

Entering the Cumulative GPA

Import: ARMS can import the cumulative GPA at the conclusion of each term via spreadsheet. This can also be included in reported earned hours for the term. Requirements:

  • Term (e.g. Fall 2020); if providing a term code (e.g. 0320) please include the term mapping

  • Student-Athlete Name

  • Student ID

  • Cumulative GPA value

Manual Update: Administrators can update GPAs directly on the Student-Athlete profile via the Progress Towards Degree widget. Click "Details" and update the Cumulative GPA for the applicable Term/Year.

GPA Eligibility Requirements

Eligibility Rules for both DI and DII institutions will be run against the Cumulative GPAs entered in ARMS.

If a student-athlete fails to pass their minimum cumulative GPA requirement for a specified term, they will be indicated in red within the Academics > Progress Towards Degree page.

Term GPA

The Term GPA should be provided by the institution at the completion of each term and will display within the Progress Towards Degree widget on the SA profile.

Entering the Term GPA

Import: ARMS can import the term GPA at the conclusion of each term via spreadsheet. This can also be included in reported earned hours for the term. Requirements:

  • Term (e.g. Fall 2020); if providing a term code (e.g. 0320) please include the term mapping

  • Student-Athlete Name

  • Student ID

  • Term GPA value

Manual Update: Administrators can update GPAs directly on the Student-Athlete profile via the Progress Towards Degree widget. Click "Details" and update the Term GPA for the applicable Term/Year.
