The semester (or term) grade point average (GPA) is the sum of all grade points earned in a semester or term divided by all credit hours attempted for letter grade.
Credit hours in courses in which marks of I, W, S or U were assigned are not included in GPA calculation.
GPA = Total quality points earned divided by attempted credit hours
Quality points per class = Point value of letter grade multiplied by the number of credit hours.
Letter grade values: A=4; B=3; C=2; D=1; F=0
If a student has completed five classes during a given semester:
Total credit hours attempted for a letter grade: 14,
Total quality points earned: 37
GPA = 37/14 = 2.643
Note: Developmental courses do not count toward a student's earned hours or grade point average; these courses are applied toward a student's full-time status. Developmental courses are those mathematics and English courses with course numbers less than 1000 (e.g. MATH 0900, MATH 0925, and ENGL 0200), which are used only as prerequisites for other courses.
