GPA Calculation

Grade point average (GPA) is a measure of scholastic performance.  It is computed by dividing the sum of the total quality points earned by the total units of credits (quarter or semester) attempted.  The following example illustrates the computation of GPA:

    Grade         Points     x         Credit     =    Total Points
       A               4                        3                     12
       B               3                        3                       9
       C               2                        4                       8
       D               0                        3                       0     
                                                 13                     29
          GPA = 29/13 = 2.23

Grade point average can be computed for any given semester or for the total of all credits attempted.  When a grade point average is computed for the total of all the credits attempted, it is referred to as the cumulative grade point average.
