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
A 4
B 3
C 2
D 1
F 0
WF 0

 

Sample Calculation

Assume a student has taken the following courses with the results shown.

Course Credit Hours Grade Grade Points
BIO 101 4.0 B 3
ENG 156 3.0 C 2
MAT 110 3.0 F 0

 

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
BIO 101 4.0 3 12.0
ENG 156 3.0 2 6.0
MAT 110 3.0 0 0.0

 

2. Add credit hours; then add quality points

Credit Hours
4.0+3.0+3.0 = 10
Quality Points
12.0+6.0+0=18.0

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.
