Abstract
The fellowship is one of the systems used to select new students for their admission to the university using students' grades as measurement methods. Because of an assumption that the higher the score of the report card is directly proportional to the quality when the student is in college level. Moreover, we conducted a correlation study between the grades and Grade Point Average (GPA) using the Pearson method to determine whether there is a correlation between both of them. The correlation value will be searched from the data is the data score of report card based on each semester from the first semester to the fifth semester that will be searched the score of the correlation coefficient with GPA. The results of this study concluded that the score of the report card is positively correlated to GPA student but having a different correlation level for each semester.
