Grade Point Average

A student must be in good academic standing at the time of graduation. The student must achieve an institutional GPA of at least 3.00 in all graduate courses taken.    

The scholastic standing of a student is expressed in terms of GPA, which is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of semester credit hours attempted in courses numbered 5000 or higher at Clayton State University. Following is an example:

Course Semester Credit Hours Grade Numerical Equivalent Quality Points 1
ENGL 5000 3 B 3 9
HIST 5100 3 B 3 9
POLS 5000 3 A 4 12
Totals 9 30

Grade Point Average: Quality Points (30) / Credit Hours (9) = 3.33
