Grade Point Average (GPA)

The grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the total quality points earned by the total number of credits attempted. All credits for which the student is officially registered after the change of program period of each semester shall be considered “attempted credits,” except where the grades carry no penalty (i.e., grades of W, WA, INC, AUD, and PEN). For example:

Course Grade Credits Quality Points per credit Total Quality Points
ENG 111 A 3 x 4 = 12
COR 100 B 4 x 3 = 12
ART 100 C 3 x 2 = 6
ANT 100 D 3 x 1 = 3
PED 190 F 1 x 0 = 0
Total Credits 14 Total Quality Points 33
GPA = Quality Points = 33 = 2.36
Total Credits Attempted 14
