Grading Policies

The grade point average is a numerical value which is obtained by dividing the total number of credit points earned by the total number of credit hours attempted. This average is computed at the end of each semester and on a cumulative basis.

For each hour of credit, points are associated with grades as follows:

A+ or A = 4.0          C = 2.0   
A– = 3.7  C– = 1.7
B+ = 3.3 D+ = 1.3
B = 3.0 D = 1.0
B– = 2.7 D– = 0.7         
C+ = 2.3 F = 0.0

No points are recorded for an F, although the hours attempted are included in the computation. Credit points are calculated by multiplying the points associated with a grade by the number of credit hours for the course. Example: 3 hours of A = 12 credit points.
