Grade point average

At the end of each semester, a scholarship index grade point average (GPA) is computed for each student.

A = 4.00 points for each credit B+ = 3.33 points for each credit C = 2.00 points for each credit D+ = 1.33 points for each credit F = 0.00 points C+ = 2.33 points for each credit
A- = 3.67 points for each credit B = 3.00 points for each credit C- = 1.67 points for each credit D = 1.00 point for each credit
B- = 2.67 points for each credit

HF (HONOR CODE VIOLATION) = 0.00 points. Thus, a grade of A in a three-credit course would be assigned 12 points.

The GPA is determined by dividing the total number of earned quality points by the number of hours towards the GPA. Grades of AU, I and W are excluded from the calculations. Other symbols in use (not included in computation of average):

  • W Officially Withdrawn from the Course
  • AU Audit
  • I Incomplete
  • P Pass
  • NP Not Passed
  • T Transfer credit from another institution
  • PC Credit for Prior Learning and Experience
  • CC Credit for externally recognized credentials

Grade Scale

A = 93-100 B+ = 87-89C+ = 77-79 D+ = 67-69F = 0-59
A– = 90-92B = 83-86C = 73-76D = 60-66
B– = 80-82C– = 70-72

Note: The student’s final grade average is rounded to the nearest percent before grades are determined.
