GPA


The grade-point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the student’s total number of quality points by the total number of quality hours. Quality hours are all credits for which a letter grade was earned. This excludes transfer credit, AP and IB credit, and courses taken for a Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grade type.  Quality points are the sum of each course grade (on a 4-point scale) multiplied by the course credit hours.

Example: B+ in ENGL 1010, a four-credit course, is worth 13.332 quality points

(B+ = 3.333 quality points x 4 credits = 13.332 quality points)

Graduation requires a 2.000 grade-point average, equivalent to an average grade of C, in all courses as well as in the major.
