Grade Point Averages
How to Calculate Grade Point Averages (GPAs)
Convert grades into quality points (QPs):
A+ = 4.334 A = 4.000 A- = 3.666
B+ = 3.334 B = 3.000 B- = 2.666
C+ = 2.334 C = 2.000 C- = 1.666
D = 1.000 F / XF / WF = 0
Multiply the courses credits by its grade’s quality points.
Grade QPs Cr. Course QPs
A+ 4.334 x 4 cr. = 17.336
B 3.000 x 4 cr. = 12
B- 2.666 x 3 cr. = 7.998
C+ 2.334 x 2 cr. = 4.668
F 0.000 x 1 cr. = 0
Add all the quality points = 42.002
Add all the attempted credits = 14
Divide the number of quality points by the number of credits attempted.
42.002 divided by 14 = 3.00 GPA
Program-Specific GPA Policies
When a student formerly registered as nonmatriculated is accepted as a matriculated student, credits acquired (a) as a matriculated student and (b) as a nonmatriculated 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. The college-wide Academic Review Committee decides the issue of academic probation on a case-by-case basis.
