To determine the grade point average, first determine the total quality points earned by multiplying the number of grade points awarded for each course by the course’s assigned number of semester credit hours and adding the resulting quality points earned for each course. Then divide the total quality points earned in the term by the number of semester credit hours attempted (for letter grades) in the term.

Example

CourseGradeGrade PointsX Credit HoursQuality Points
Course AC+2.3X 3.06.90
Course BB-2.7X 3.08.10
Course CB3.0X 4.012.00
Course DC-1.7X 3.05.10
Course EA - 3.7X 1.03.70
Course FF0.0X 1.00.00
Course GA4.0X 3.012.00

Total Quality Points Earned: 47.80
Total Graded Hours: 18.0
Term Grade Point Average: 47.80 ÷ 18.0 = 2.656
