Grade Point Average

Grade point average computation

The grade point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the number of credit hours of a course by the quality point value assigned to the letter grade:

A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0

For example, a four-credit hour course with a grade of A carries 16 quality points. The total number of quality points earned is divided by the total number of eligible credit hours attempted (GPA hours).

Grades of I, CR, PR, NC, W, AU and TR are not calculated in the GPA. Effective Fall1991, courses on the student's transcript which have an E in the repetition column are excluded from GPA calculation.
