Student's cumulative undergraduate grade point average (GPA) standardized to a 4.00-point scale.

A student's GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points by the number of credit hours attempted.

Your GPA is the average of your grades, where the grades have been converted to a 4.0 scale, with 4.0 being an A, 3.0 being a B, and 2.0 being a C. A cumulative GPA is the average of all your grades when you attended a high school or college (i.e., cumulative GPA of grades 9-12 of high school).

The average of all the grades received while registered in a certificate program. See Grade Point Averages for more information.

The GPA is a system for evaluating the overall scholastic performance of students. The GPA is derived by dividing the Quality Points by the Credit Hours Attempted. See the current catalog for required GPA per program and for graduation.

GPA is the average of a student's semester grades starting from the Freshman year. At ULV you need a GPA of 2.0 to graduate. The letter grades translate into point values as shown: Grade Point Value 4.00 3.67 3.33 3.00 2.67 2.33 2.00 1.67 1.33 1.00 0.67 0.00

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 method of expressing a studentâ€™s average performance.

Average grade of courses taken in any semester. Formula: Grade point multiplied by credit hour = quality points. Quality points divided by number of credits carried = GPA. See catalog for grade representation and to figure cumulative GPA or the "How to Compute Your GPA."

The GPA is determined by dividing the total grade points earned by the number of attempted units.

Total number of grade points received for A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, C-, D+, D, D- or F grades divided by total number of credits attempted.

An average of a student's grades, converted to a 4.0 scale (4.0 is an A, 3.0 is a B, and 2.0 is a C).

The number calculated by dividing the total grade points (see Grade Points) earned by total credit hours taken. A quarter or semester grade point average is only for that term. A cumulative grade point average is for all the credit hours taken at a high school, college or university.

a numerical system used to measure how students are doing academically

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.

A weighted average of a studentâ€™s performance in credit courses; in the secondary system, GPA is based upon the following scale in credit courses in Grade 11 and 12: A=4; B=3; C+=2.5; C=2; C-=1; calculation of GPA for admission to post-secondary education varies by receiving institution; GPA in the PSE system is also a weighted average, but the scale may vary by institution.

A reflection of a student's academic standing by means of earned grade points.

The GPA is a numerical average based on grade points from equivalent letter grades.

An indicator of the student's overall scholastic performance. The GPA is computed by multiplying the number of grade points earned in each course (generally, A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0) times the number of course hours/credit hours then dividing the sum by the total number of course hours/credit hours carried.

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.

Indicates your academic progress on a 4.0 scale for a given semester.

the grade point average (GPA) designates the estimated merit of a student’s work in the form of a decimal value which represents a specific letter grade. Letter grades and their numerical values are listed in the second section of this catalog. The GPA for a single quarter will be the grade point which results from the averaging of letter grades received in all courses for that quarter. See also "cumulative grade point average" above.

Also referred to as Quality Point Average (QPA). The QPA is the ratio of grade points earned to the number of credit hours attempted. Grades of A, B, C,D, and F are part of the GPA calculation. To compute the GPA, add all the grade points earned and divide this sum by the number of semester hours attempted.

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.

Colleges assign points for each grade (i.e. A = 4 points, B = 3 points, etc.) You can determine your GPA in three steps. Multiply the number of credit hours in each course by the value assigned to each grade. Add the calculated points for all courses. Divide by the total number of credit hours.

A student's GPA is determined by dividing the number of credits attempted into the quality points.

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.

The total of your grade points averaged over the number of units contributing points of 0.0 and greater. Final grades with “neutral” points do not effect your GPA. Your GPA (also called your cumulative GPA) is based on all coursework completed from September 1996 onward.

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.

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

The average grade earned throughout a student's applicable secondary or postsecondary education program.

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.

The ratio of grade points earned to semester hours carried. The UF GPA is computed on University of Florida course work only.

A measure of scholastic performance. A GPA is obtained by dividing the number of grade points by the hours of work attempted, an A = 4 points, a B = 3 points, a C = 2 points, a D = 1 point, and an F = 0 points.

The total grade points earned divided by the number of credits earned. For instance, 30 grade points earned in 10 credits yields a 3.0 grade point average.

Also referred to as "Quality Point Average" (QPA). The term GPA is determined by multiplying the term credit hours of each course by the number of grade points (quality points) associated with the final grade(s) for the course(s). The cumulative GPA is determined by adding all of the grade points earned and dividing the sum by the cumulative number of credit hours attempted. Grades of "W," "I," "AT," "S," and "U" are not included in the GPA calculation.

Numerical average of a student's grades in major subjects.

A system of recording academic achievement based on an average, calculated by multiplying the numerical grade received in each course by the number of credit

The total number of points per credit hour earned (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0), divided by college-level credit hours attempted.

the total number of credits earned (credits X grade) divided by total hours attempted. The GPA is a measure of the student's level of achievement and is used to determine academic awards or to assess academic discipline.

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.

GPA, the value of each course final mark multiplied by the credit value of each course, divided by the number of courses taken.

The average of the grades obtained by a student in all subjects weighted by the credit point value of each subject in accordance with the following formula: GPA=Sum(GP) divided by Sum(P); where G=grade for each subject and P=credit point value for each subject. If for any reason a student does not achieve any grade of result in a subject, the value of G for that subject shall be taken as zero. The GPA can be calculated for a semester or for a program.
