2016-2017 Catalog

Grade Point Average

Students are responsible for computing their own GPA. The transcript and degree audit should be carefully checked, and, if discrepancies exist, the Office of Admissions and Records should be notified immediately.

Grade point average is calculated based on the number of hours attempted per course and the grade point value associated with the letter grade.

Example:

Course Credit Grade Grade Points
English 3 A 4.00 (x 3) = 12.0
Math 3 B+ 3.75 (x 3) = 11.3
Speech 3 F 0.00 (x 3) = 0.0
Psychology 3 C 2.00 (x 3) = 6.0
Total Credits: 12
Total Grade Points: 29.3

Divide 29.3 (grade points) by 12 (credits) = 2.4 GPA
