Grades listed below are NOT used to calculate GPA:

A Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated for each semester based on the number of hours attempted per course and the grade point value associated with the letter grade.

Please see the example below:

Total Credits: 16

Total Grade Points: 35.0

Grade points are the total of each course's credit value multiplied by the grade point value. Grade point values (GPV) are listed in the table at the top of this page.

Divide 35.0 (grade points) by 16 (credits) = 2.18 GPA
