Grade Point System

The grade point average (GPA) is the measure of academic success.

It is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the number of credit hours for which grades of A, B, C, D, F, or I are awarded.

Grade points are calculated for each course by multiplying the course credit hours by the points corresponding to the grade earned in the course.

An A is worth four points, a B three, a C two, a D one, and an F or an I zero.

 A =

4 Points 

 B =

3 Points 

 C =

2 Points

 D =

1 Points

 F =

0 Points

 I =

0 Points

Notice the effect of one F in the second example. To get off Probation, Student 2 should immediately repeat the failed course and get Cs or better in all courses.

  • Course withdrawals or audits (grades of W or V) do not count in the GPA.

  • The term GPA (TGPA) is for course work in a given semester only.

  • The cumulative GPA (CGPA) is the overall academic standing based on all grades and credit hours attempted.

  • Grades are sent to students at the end of each term.

  • Be sure that the Registrar has your current address.
