Degree GPA & LSDAS GPA

Degree GPA & LSDAS GPA

Can someone explain the difference between the degree GPA and the GPA that the LSDAS.

My degree GPA was 3.88 but the LSDAS lists it as 3.98 for index purposes??

I am guessing that it is because my school used a straight 4.0 scale, while the LSDAS uses 4.0+. At my school, an A-, A, A+ - all given 4.0 while the LSDAS gives more weight to the individual grade.
