I'd just leave any GPA off your CV and only provide it if the hiring person asks.


This is absolutely the best track. Also, surprisingly, I've often heard from people who do hiring that you should not put graduation dates on your educational materials. This is because graduation dates often indicate age pretty precisely, and age is among the protected statuses. To avoid complications with the law, they would prefer to have no overt indications of any candidate's age. It's also considered good form to cut off your work history at about ten years back, partly for the same reason.
