Grade Point Average
The student must achieve an institutional GPA of at least 2.00 in the courses used to meet degree requirements. A student must be in good academic standing at the time of graduation. Some programs may require a higher GPA.
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. Following is an example:
|Course||Semester Credit Hours||Grade||Numerical Equivalent||Quality Points 1|
Grade Point Average = Quality Points (51) / Total Credit Hours (16) = 3.19
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.
