Grade Point Average. The numeric value assigned to the earned letter grade for each class taken. The GPA is determined by dividing the total grade points by the total credit hours attempted.

a measure of a student's academic achievement at a college or university; calculated by dividing the total number of grade points received by the total number attempted

The average grade maintained by a student when all countable/completed units are considered in combination. For example, an "A" average equals a score of 4.0. An overall GPA of C (2.0) is required for continued attendance at UCI.

An average calculated by dividing the total number of grade points obtained (credit hours x grade points) by the number of credit hours attempted.

Grade Point Average is the average of decimal grades given for each course attempted. The CUM GPA includes all classes attempted. The CLVL GPA includes only those classes that are college-level courses.

GRADE POINT AVERAGE. A calculated index number that signifies the student's academic performance during a quarter (term) or entire collegiate experience (cumulative). It is expressed on a decimal scale from 0.00 to 4.00. It is calculated via the following formula: GPA = Total Grade Points/Total Graded Credits Earned. Grade points are the product of course credit times grade earned in each UW residence course. Non-graded and deductible credits may/may not be excluded. Any decimal grades reported in the 0.10 to 0.69 range are converted to 0.00. "S" and "CR"grades do not enter into GPA calculation but do count as credits earned toward graduation. "NS" and "NC" grades are both excluded from GPA calculations and do not count as credits toward graduation. Extension course and credit-by-examination grades are also excluded from GPA.

Grade Point Average. A measure of a student's academic achievement at the College, calculated by dividing the total number of grade points received by the total number of credits attempted. Your term GPA and the cumulative average are computed at the end of each term. For purposes of computing the Grade Point Average (GPA), the following weights are used: A=4.0; A-=3.7; B+=3.3; B=3.0; B-=2.7; C+=2.3; C=2.0; C-=1.7; D+=1.3; D=1.0; D-=0.7; and F=0.0. Included in the GPA calculation are the grades earned for Convocation credit, calculated as 0.25 for CA and 0.0 for CF grades. S, SC, I, and U grades are not used in calculating GPA. (Note: Prior to Fall Term 2003, the following weights were used to calculate GPA: A=4; B=3; C=2; D=1; and F=0. These weights will remain in effect for grades earned prior to Fall Term 2003.) W, WP, WF, I, and grades in non-credit courses are not used in computing the GPA.

Grade Point Average: The calculation of credit attempted and earned.

Grade Point Average. Numeric average of academic performance on a 0-to-4 point scale. The GPA is the ratio of grade points earned to credit hours attempted.

Grade point average, used to compute student academic standing.

Shorthand for "grade point average". The standard measure for determining overall academic standing. Montgomery College, like almost all US institutions, uses the scale A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0. No other grades ( Audit or Withdraw, for example) are included in computing the gpa. Grade points for each course are multiplied by the number of credits assigned to that course, these values are summed, and that total is finally divided by the total number of credits for these courses to arrive at the GPA.

Grade Point Average. A mathematical measurement of academic performance, computed by multiplying quality points by credit hours for courses in a semester, a major, or a total program; adding them; and dividing the sum by semester hours attempted.

Incomplete A grade of incomplete may be given if a student has done passing work and because of illness or a major cause beyond the student's control fails to complete the class requirements. Incompletes must be made up by the end of the next semester or the grade may be changed to an F.

Grade Point Average. Determined by first multiplying the number of credits for each course taken for a letter grade by the points earned for that course (i.e., A is 4 points, B is 3, C is 2, D is 1, and F is 0), then by adding all the points, and finally by dividing total grade points by the total number of credits attempted for courses in which letter grades were given.

Measures students' academic progress by assigning numerical values to letter grades. Maximum score is 4.0 or an A. GPA is determined by dividing the sum of grade points by the number of credits.

Your grade point average is figured by adding all the points from your grades and divising that number of credit hours you have completed. Each grade is worth a certain number of points. IU East uses a 4.0 scale, which means an "A" is worth a maximum of 4 points. A "B" is worth 3 points etc. This can be confusing, so see your advisor for assistance.

Grade Point Average. The grade point average is a way of mathematically computing academic performance. It is determined by assigning a value to each letter grade, multiplying by the number of credit hours in the course, and dividing by the total number of hours attempted. The GPA is the standard measure for retention and graduation requirements. UALR is on a four-point system, which means that an A grade is assigned a value of four points (sometimes called quality points), a B three points, a C two points, a D one point, and an F zero points. Here's an example of a grade point average for one semester: Course Credit Hours Grade (Value) Grade Points RHET 1311 B (3) = SPCH 1300 A (4) = 12 LESC 1108 F (0) = DRTH 1260 C (2) = BIOL 1402 D (1) = HIST 1311 C (2) = Total: 16 35 Divide the total hours (16) into the total grade points (35) to find the GPA of 2.18 (slightly above a C average). The UALR cumulative GPA is based on all college-level work taken at UALR. Your semester grade report will show both the semester and the cumulative GPA. (Some developmental course grades are excluded from the GPA. Please see "Developmental courses" in this glossary.)

A measure of how well students are performing in school. A grade of “A” is 4.0, “B” is 3.0, “C” is 2.0, “D” is 1.0 and “E” is 0.0. All the assignment and test grades are averaged together for a grade in a class. All class grades are averaged together for an overall GPA. This average is very important to get into good colleges and universities.

Grade Point Average. The grade average a student earns for each semester. It is calculated by multiplying the number of credits given for a course times the value of the grade received for the course (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0), adding the value calculated for each class and dividing by the total number of credits. Thus, if a student has an "A" in a 4 credit course; a "B" in a 3 credit course; a "C" in a 2 credit course, and a "D" in a 2 credit course the GPA calculation would be as follows: A = 4 times 4 credits = 16 grade points B = 3 times 3 credits = 9 grade points C = 2 times 2 credits = 4 grade points D = 1 times 2 credits = 2 grade points Total = 31 grade points divided by 11 total credits = 2.82 GPA.

A GPA is an average of numeric grades, adjusted for variations in the credit hours that are assigned to the courses on which the average is based. That is, a grade in a 3-credit-hour course has double the value in the average calculation than a grade in a 1.5-credit-hour course has. GPAs are calculated at the University of Regina for each semester (Term GPA or TGPA), for a student's program (Program GPA or PGPA), and for a student's whole academic record (Undergraduate GPA or UGPA and Cumulative GPA or CGPA). Refer to §5.10.2 for more information about GPAs and how they are calculated and used.

Grade Point Average. A system for evaluating the overall scholastic performance of students. Grades are often measured on a four-point scale in which an "A" equals four points and a "B" equals three points, etc. These are called grade points. Total points are found by multiplying the number of credits for a course by the student's grade point. A student's GPA is found by dividing the sum of grade points by the number of course credits.
