Grade Point Average

Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine

The grade point average is a weighted average computed using the number of credits assigned to each course and the quality points corresponding to the letter grade earned in each course. It is determined by calculating the total number of quality points earned and dividing them by the total number of credits carried. The total quality points earned for each course are determined by multiplying the quality points earned per credit (corresponding to the letter grade) by the number of credits assigned to the course. The student's cumulative grade point average is computed and recorded by the Office of the Registrar. It is calculated at the completion of each academic year and it does not include any grades or credits for courses audited or courses with a grade of withdrawal "W" or withdrawal failing "W/F" or pass "P" or failed "F" that were repeated.
