Academic Policy Details


Quality Points and GPA

The academic grade point average (GPA) is determined by multiplying the quality points assigned to each letter grade (A = 4; B = 3; C = 2; D = 1; F = 0) by the credit for each course. The resulting total quality points divided by credit hours attempted produces the grade point average. The grade of F carries no quality points but the credits attempted are calculated into the student's grade point average. Grades of I, CR, W, WP, and WF, do not carry quality points, are not tabulated as hours attempted, and do not affect the grade point average.

Transfer credit is not included in the GPA calculation.

These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only.  Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Regulations.
