Academic Advising

Semester and cumulative grade point averages are calculated for all students. The GPA is calculated by multiplying quality points by credit hours for each course, totaling these products, and dividing the sum by the total credit hours attempted in a given semester. Example: Grade Points x Credit Hours = Point Credits

Example Grade Points  x 

Credit
Hours

 =  Point
Credits
Course 1    A  4.0  x    4  =

 16.0

Course 2

   B+

 3.3  x    3  =   9.9

Course 3 

   C+  2.3  x    3  =   6.9

Course 4

   C-  1.7  x    3  =     5.1

Course 5

   D  1.0  x    3  =   3.0
Total        16   40.9

Total point credits, 40.9, divided by total credit hours, 16, equals the Grade Point Average, 2.55.
