Grade-Point Calculation

For computing grade-point average, grades are evaluated as follows for each semester hour of credit:

Grade Quality

Points

Grade Quality

Points

A

4.0

C

2.0

A-

3.7

C-

1.7

B+

3.3

D+

1.3

B

3.0

D

1.0

B-

2.7

D-

0.7

C+

2.3

F

0.0

For example, a student receives an A in two courses, one carrying 3 credits and one carrying 1 credit; a B in a 3-credit course; a B- in a 3-credit course; a C- in a 2-credit course; a D in a 3-credit course; and an F in a 2-credit course. The grade-point average is computed as follows. A or 4 quality points per hour x 4 credits = 16 quality points-B or 3 quality points per hour x 3 credits = 9 quality points-B- or 2.7 quality points per hour x 3 credits = 8.1 quality points-C- or 1.7 quality points per hour x 2 credits = 3.4 quality points-D or 1 quality point per hour x 3 credits = 3 quality points-F or 0 quality points per hour x 2 credits = 0 quality points- 17 credits for a total of 39.5 quality points To calculate this student's semester grade-point average, the quality point total is divided by the total number of credits taken: 39.5 ÷ 17 = 2.32. The cumulative grade-point average (CGPA) for a student's record is determined by adding the credits attempted and dividing this total into the total number of quality points. The cumulative grade-point average indicates the academic record of the student for the time enrolled at the University and does not include transfer credit.
