Abstract


The success of higher education institutions can be seen from several indicators. One of the indicators is the institutions that can produce outputs and outcomes with the competence in relation to the needs of society. The graduates’ academic achievement can be described through their grade point average (GPA). There are 79  graduates who got Cum Laude predicate at the Department of Islamic Studies, IAIN Imam Bonjol Padang  in the 1st Period of graduation which was held on August to September and in the 2nd period on March, from the academic year of 2011 to 2015. The lowest GPA is 3.5 while the highest GPA is 3.93. The graduates who got Cum Laude have worked in several field of jobs; such as as Islamic Religion teachers, staffs in government offices, banks, political parties both in West Sumatra and out of  Sumatra. The study showed that there is no significant contribution of GPA with their career. It implied that GPA will not determine the graduate career either as teacher on Islamic Religion or as teacher on social science and civics education. It also found that the graduates who work in out of field of studies was caused by the demand of the schools because of lack of teachers.
