A researcher has investigated the relationship between IQ and Grade point average, the correlation is .75. What is the connection to correlation and causation?

The correlation is very high, meaning a close connection between these two variables (as you would expect - an intelligent study is likely to get a high score).

Correlation does not give the cause, which has to be investigated separately. We cannot say a high IQ causes the student to get high marks; many other factors are also involved even if IQ is one such factor.
