Will listing my major GPA instead of my cumulative GPA on my resume cause problems?

So I just started working in an admin position in a financial office and I think I may have slipped up. I listed my major gpa on my resume as just (GPA:#.#) as I had been under the impression that this was commonplace, and employees only wanted to know about coursework that is most relevant to the position. I'm now learning that it may not be. My major gpa is .3 higher than my cumulative. Ive completed a background check and sent my transcripts (required of all employees) about a month ago now, and nothing has been brought up. The transcripts only list the cumulative gpa, the major gpa was calculated by me.

A degree wasn't even required for the position, so of course no listed GPA requirements. They were pretty clear about hiring me based on work experience, but i'm now worried that the discrepancy may be discovered and i'll be fired for being dishonest. I'm four years out of college and wish i had just left gpa off altogether to avoid all of this stress.

Should I address this with HR? Will that get me fired? Should I just quit and start looking elsewhere?

This is almost certainly a non-issue. If it comes up clarify it then. Do not quit on the very off chance of you getting fired. Do not bring it up. Just do your job and do it well and I assure you they won't give a flying concern even if they do find out.

what's your interest
