Grade Point Average

The grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned in courses by the total number of credits attempted. Courses which do not generate grade points are not included in credits attempted.

  • Semester Grade Point Average—Semester GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned in courses attempted for the semester by the total number of credits attempted. 
  • Cumulative Grade Point Average—Cumulative GPA, which includes all courses attempted, is computed each semester and is maintained on a continuing basis as a record of a student’s academic standing. (See page 17 for Course Repeat Policy).
  • Curriculum Grade Point Average—A curriculum GPA, which includes only those courses applicable to a student’s curriculum, is computed in order to ensure that a student satisfies the graduation requirements for that curriculum. When a student repeats a course, only the last grade earned is counted in the computation of the curriculum GPA.
