Is there any way to highlight last semester GPA on resume?

I did shitty the first couple of semesters and I have a fairly crap GPA. However I got my shit together and I think I should be able to get a 3.9 this semester, but it literally doesn't show anywhere except to raise my GPA by .1. Is there any way to highlight that on my resume?

Just keep getting 3.9s and 4.0s. You can't really do much except break apart your Cumulative GPA and Major GPA if they differ greatly. Sometimes companies require you to list both on applications, but you can do it on your resume if you want.

I took 44 credit hours senior year with a 3.9 (all As, one B), but it is not visible anywhere except my official transcript. My cumulative is lower. I actually did receive two academic awards that year for high GPA, but it is not really highlighted on my resume.

But, an upward trajectory with GPA is especially good if you ever go to graduate programs. Keep it up!

Mhmhm that is so frustrating. I'll be able to get it up to 3.7 by junior year end, but that's close to useless for recruiting.
