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
MATH 1101 3 A 4 12
ENGL 1101 3 B 3 9
BIOL 1107 3 C 2 6
BIOL 1107L 1 B 3 3
COMM 1110 3 A 4 12
HIST 1111 3 B 3 9
Totals 16 51


Grade Point Average = Quality Points (51) / Total Credit Hours (16) = 3.19
