Grading System

To determine a student’s grade point average (GPA) the College uses this scale:

 Letter
 Grade
 Quality
 Points
 A+ = 4.000
 A = 4.000
 A- = 3.700
 B+ = 3.300
 B = 3.000
 B- = 2.700
 C+ = 2.300
 C = 2.000
 C- = 1.700
 D+ = 1.300
 D = 1.000
 D- = 0.700
 F = 0.000

Note: I, NC, P, and W grades are not calculated in grade point average.

Calculating Grade Point Average (GPA)

Example: a student enrolled in 16 credits with one “A-,” two “B grades,” one “C+,” and one “D+” would have the following grade point average:

A- 3 credit course x 3.700 quality points = 11.100
B 3 credit course x 3.000 quality points = 9.000
B 4 credit course x 3.000 quality points = 12.000
C+ 3 credit course x 2.300 quality points = 6.900
D+ 3 credit course x 1.300 quality points = 3.900
  = 16 total GPA credits   42.900 Quality points
  Quality points / GPA credits
(42.900/16.00 = 2.680)
2.860 GPA
