Calculating GPA

First, calculate the total grade points earned.

Example:

  • A letter grade of A in ENGL 1301: 4 points x 3 semester hours = 12 grade points
  • A letter grade of B in BIOL 1401: 3 points x 4 semester hours = 12 grade points

The GPA (grade point average) = total grade points / total hours attempted.

Example: 

  • 24 total grade points/7 semester hours = 3.4 GPA

Change of Grade

You may petition for a grade change within 30 days after the first class day of the next regular semester.

To request a change of grade, contact your instructor. If the instructor isn't available, contact the department chair.
