Grade Point Averages

How to Calculate Grade Point Averages (GPAs)

Grades should be converted into quality points:

A+ = 13 A = 12 A- = 11
B+ = 10 B = 9 B- = 8
C+ = 7 C = 6 C- = 5
D = 3 F = 0 WF = 0

Example of GPA calculation:

A+ 4 cr. x 13 points = 52 quality points
B 4 cr. x 9 points = 36 quality points
B- 3 cr. x 8 points = 24 quality points
C+ 2 cr. x 7 points = 14 quality points
  13 credits total = 126 quality points
126 divided by 3 = 42 divided by 13 = 3.23 GPA
[Divide the number of quality points (126) by 3, then divide by the number of credits attempted (13).]

Program-Specific GPA Policies

When a student formerly registered as nonmatriculated through the School of Liberal Studies & Continuing Education is accepted as a matriculated student, credits acquired (a) as a matriculated student and (b) as a nonmatriculated continuing education student are counted toward the cumulative GPA.

When a student transfers between the School of the Arts and the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, grades previously earned remain in the cumulative GPA. However, probation is not transferred automatically. The Academic Review Committee of the accepting program decides the issue of academic probation on a case-by-case basis.
