Grade Point Average (GPA)Calculations
Click here for online GPA calculator.
Grades are calculated on a 4.0 scale. Points are awarded in this manner:
|Grade||Grade Points per Credit Hour|
Assume a student has taken the following courses with the results shown.
|Course||Credit Hours||Grade||Grade Points|
1. To calculate GPA, multiply the number of credit hours by the grade points to determine the number of quality points.
|Course||Credit Hours||Grade Point||Quality Points|
2. Add credit hours; then add quality points
4.0+3.0+3.0 = 10
3. Divide the number of quality points by the number of credit hours = GPA 18 divided by 10 = 1.80 GPA
Developmental courses offered through the Comprehensive Studies Department (those numbered less than 100) generate no credit hours, do not affect the GPA, and do not count toward graduation. Developmental studies courses numbered 100 or above generate credit hours and affect the GPA but do not count toward graduation in any degree, diploma, or certificate program.
