Courses are recorded in terms of quarter hour(s) of credit. Multiplication of the credits for a course by the numeric value for the grade awarded gives the number of quality points earned for a course. Dividing the total number of quality points earned in courses by the total number of credits in those courses gives the grade point average. Grades reported as Pass (P), Withdrawal (W), or Withdrawal Failing (WF) are recorded on the student's permanent record but are not used in the calculation of the student's grade point average.
The student's cumulative grade point average is computed and recorded by the Office of the Registrar. It is calculated at the end of the academic year, 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), or Failed (F) that were later repeated.
