The grade point average determines academic standing and is computed as follows:
- Multiply the grade points earned in each course by the number of credit hours associated with that course. For each course, this gives a value known as quality points.
- Add the quality points from all the courses taken in the semester. Total the number of credits separately.
- Divide the total quality points by the total number of credits. This gives the semester grade point average.
|Example||Letter Grade||Grade Points||Number of Credits||Quality Points|
|ENGL100L English Composition||A||(4)||4||4 x 4 = 16|
|BIOL144L Human Biology with Lab||B+||(3.3)||4||3.3 x 4 = 13.2|
|MATH129L Quantitative Reasoning||C||(2)||4||2 x 4 = 8|
|PSYC125L Introduction to Psychology||D||(1)||3||1 x 3 = 3|
A total of 40.2 quality points divided by fifteen (15) credits = 2.68 semester grade point average (GPA)
