How Your Grade Point Average Is Calculated

Grade Values

Only classes receiving grades of A, B, C, D, or F are used to calculate your GPA.

  • Four points for each credit of A
  • Three points for each credit of B
  • Two points for each credit of C
  • One point for each credit of D
  • Zero points for each credit of F

Total your points for these classes and divide this total by the number of credits in which A, B, C, D, and F are earned.

Example

  • Three credit class with a grade of A equals 12 points (3 credits x 4 points)
  • Four credit class with a grade of B equals 12 points (4 credits x 3 points)
  • Two credit class with a grade of C equals 4 points (2 credits x 2 points)
  • One credit class with a grade of P equals 0 points and does not count in your GPA calculation

Total points earned equals 28. Divide the 28 points by nine credits, resulting in a 3.1 GPA.

Grades of P and NP, and marks of SC, NSC, I, W, X, CIP, CIPR, R, and AUD are not counted in your grade point average.
