Grade Point Average (GPA)

Grade points are calculated by multiplying the regular term hour value of the course by the point value of the grade earned. An “A” in a three-hour course earns 12 grade points, a “B” earns 9 points, a “C” earns 6 points, a “D” earns 3 points, an “F” earns 0 points. The grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total points earned by the semester hours completed with grades of “A”,“B”, “C”, “D”, or “F”. For repeated courses, the most recent grade is used in the cumulative GPA; however, all grades earned in a course will be entered on your transcript and will remain there permanently. The following grades are not used to calculate your GPA: I (Incomplete) P/F (Pass/Fail Courses) W (Withdrawn). A college level GPA is also displayed on the student record which reflects only college level coursework and excludes developmental or preparatory coursework.
