#### How do I calculate my GPA?

Grade point averages are calculated by multiplying the number equivalent of the letter grade by the number of credit hours for the course (this yields grade points) and then dividing by the total number of credit hours. The semester grade point average is computed by dividing the total number of grade points earned at the University during a given semester by the sum of the credit hours for all courses in which the student received letter grades of A, B, C, D or F taken at the University during that same semester.

A 4
B 3
C 2
D 1
F 0

GPA = Quality Points divided by Credit Hours

Example:

MATH 100 4 A 16 (4x4)
CHEM 100 3 C 6 (3x2)
ENGL 100 3 B 9 (3x3)
ANTH 100 3 A 12 (3x4)
BIOL 100 2 F 0 (2x0)
MUSC 100 1 P 0 (n/a not an evaluative grade)

Total GPA Credit Hours = 15
Total Quality Points = 43

GPA = 43/15 = 2.867
(because MUSC 100 has a grade of "P" it is not included in credit hours for GPA calculation)

#### How do I request a grade report?
