How to Determine your Grade Point Average (GPA)

A student’s semesterly GPA is computed by dividing the number of credit hours in the courses attempted for the semester (in which a grade of A, B, C, D, F, or WF was received) into the number of quality points earned on those hours scheduled for the semester. Neither transfer, articulated, nor exemption credit are calculated in the GPA. Work Ethics grades are not used in calculating GPA. The method explained below can be used to figure GPA for one term or to calculate a cumulative or overall GPA.

Assume, for example, that a student received the following grades for the fall term:

3-hour English course: C
3-hour computer course:  B
5-hour math course:  B
3-hour business course:  A
To figure the GPA for this term, first multiply the number of credit hours for each course times the numerical value of the grade (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1).  This will gives the quality points for each course. (For example, to determine the quality points for English, multiply 3 X 2.)  Then divide the total number of credit hours (14) into the total number of quality points (42). This results in a GPA of (3.00). No. of Numerical Quality Credit Hours Grade Value Points:

3 X 2 = 6 (English)
3 X 3 = 9 (Computer)
5 X 3 = 15 (Math)
3 X 4 = 12 (Business)
Totals = 14 credit hours and 42 grade value points
42 ÷ 14 = 3.0 Grade Point Average (GPA)
