Grade Point Average (G.P.A.)


A student’s overall academic performance is measured by calculating the grade point average (G.P.A.). This average is found by using grades from each course on the student’s record except those that have one of the following grades assigned: P, INC, W, WA, WN, PEN, AUD, NC.

Each grade received is assigned a numerical value called Quality Points, as described in the Grading System Chart. The number of Quality Points multiplied by the number of credits the course carries is the total for the course. The G.P.A. is found by adding these totals and dividing this amount by the total number of credits attempted.
