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|
Grade Point Average: Quality Points (30) / Credit Hours (9) = 3.33
Quality Points are calculated by multiplying the Numerical Equivalent of the course grade (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, and F=0) by the Semester Credit Hours for the course.
