Courses are recorded in terms of quarter hour(s) of credit. The grade point average (GPA) 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. The GPA is calculated by dividing the total quality points earned by the total number of credits carried. The total quality points earned for each course is 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 beginning at the end of the first quarter of enrollment, and does not include any grades or credits for courses audited or accepted for transfer, or courses with a grade of withdrawal (W), withdrawal failing (WF), pass (P) or failed (F) that were later repeated.
