Class Rank and Multiplier Changes

Class Rank and Multiplier Changes
Posted on 04/18/2024
The landscape for college admissions is rapidly changing, and AHISD is taking responsive action to ensure students are competitive during the college application process and well-prepared once accepted into college.

Moving forward with the Class of 2028, AHISD students will maintain two distinct GPAs: the Cumulative GPA, encompassing all subjects, and a new Rank in Class (RIC) GPA, which is solely based on core academic subjects such as English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. This RIC GPA will be used in determining the top 10% of students who are eligible for automatic admission to Texas’s public universities.

In addition, AHISD will reinstate a three-tiered multiplier system for course categories, providing weights of 1.0, 1.1, or 1.13 to reflect course rigor and challenge levels.

Beginning in the 2024-2025 school year, a numeric class rank shall only be calculated for and communicated to students in the top 10% of each graduation cohort.

For students in the 2025-2027 graduation cohorts, the class rank will continue to be calculated using all high school courses. For students in the 2028 graduation cohort and beyond, the class rank will be calculated with the new RIC GPA.

More information about these changes can be found on the AHISD Class Rank website.
