Cal Poly student GPA jumped 7.8% during a virtual year

Being a college student the past year has never been so different, or some may say so easy. While some students have found the turn to virtual classes to be a blessing in disguise, given easy access to the internet and changed grading policies, others have struggled adjusting to the online format. 

Data collected by Academic Affairs at Cal Poly showed a 7.8% increase in the average student GPA from fall quarter 2019 to winter quarter 2021. The data was based on the 21,812 undergraduate and graduate students attending Cal Poly.
