Here's how GPA works:
 
Grade Evaluation Quality Points
 
 
A Excellent 4
B Good 3
C Average 2
D Passing 1
F Failing 0


*Grades of "S", "Z," "U", "AU", and "W" are not included in GPA.

Quality points are the numerical equivalent of grades. Grade Point Average is computed by multiplying the numerical value of the grade, by the number of semester credit hours attempted; then, dividing the total number of quality points, by the total number of credits attempted.

The example below represents five courses, three semester credit hours each, with the following grades: Two A’s, one B, two C’s

Quality Points
 
A 4 x     3 credits = 12
A 4 x     3 credits = 12
B 3 x     3 credits = 9
C 2 x     3 credits = 6
C 2 x     3 credits = 6
    15 total credits attempted 45 total quality points


15 total credits attempted 45 total quality points
Total of 45 quality points, divided by 15 credit hours attempted, equals a 3.0 GPA
