Computation of Grade Point Average (GPA)

The letter grade in each course is converted to a quality point equivalent. The quality points are then multiplied by the semester hours. The total quality points for all courses are then divided by the total credit hours attempted to give the GPA.

Example:

ENG 111 A 4.0 x 3= 12
BIO 163 B 3.0 x 5= 15
PSY 150 C 2.0 x 3= 6
TOTALS       11= 33

A cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C) or better is required for graduation in all programs. A lower GPA will also affect financial aid eligibility. Grades of W, I, NA, AU and CR are not counted as hours attempted in calculating the GPA. If grades are changed, the GPA will be recomputed. Statements concerning academic honors, academic high honors, academic warning, or academic probation appear on the grade transcript for the appropriate term in which the status was earned. These statements will not be removed from the transcript by students improving their grade point average by repeating a class
