# Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation and Definitions

The GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) is calculated by multiplying the credits for each course by the quality points associated with the grade earned, totaling the points earned for all courses, and dividing the total points by the total number of credit attempts.

Quality Points are assigned to each letter grade.

• A = 4.0 quality points
• B = 3.0 quality points
• C = 2.0 quality points
• D = 1 quality point
• F = 0 quality points

The assigned values for the grades are A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, and F= 0. (D & F are unacceptable credits in a course; therefore, those grades do not satisfy the graduation requirements)
