Calculating Your GPA

** Term GPA is different than Cumulative GPA.
Cumul GPA determines your academic standing.
It is possible to have 3.5 GPA for a semester and still be placed on probation, suspension, dismissal.
Please see an academic counselor for more information.

Calculation of your Semester GPA

Your grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total amount of quality points earned by the total amount of quality point credits attempted. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to a 4.0. Grades have the following point values:

A = 4.0     B+ = 3.5     B = 3.0     C+ = 2.5     C = 2.0     D = 1.0     E = 0     F = 0
