Computation of Grade Point Average
GPA is computed by dividing the total number of quality points accumulated in courses for which a grade of A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D-, F, or XF has been assigned by the total number of credits attempted in those courses. Courses for which a mark of P, S, I, NGR or W has been assigned are not included in computing the GPA. Each letter grade has a numerical value: A+=4, A=4, A- = 3.7; B+=3.3, B=3, B- = 2.7; C+=2.3, C=2, C- = 1.7; D+=1.3, D=1, D- = 0.7; F = 0. Multiplying this value by the number of credits for a particular course gives the number of quality points earned for that course.
See Repeat Policy to determine the effect of repeated courses in the calculation of GPA.
