HOW TO FIGURE YOUR GRADE POINT AVERAGE
Your Grade Point Average (GPA) is determined by computing the ratio of grade
points to semester credit hours attempted. Audit courses, college preparatory
courses, and courses in which a “W” (withdraw) and “I” (Incomplete) was awarded
are not included in your GPA. However, courses in which an “F” or “FN”was
awarded are included in your GPA. Your GPA is found by adding the total grade
point values for all courses and dividing the total by the number of credit hours
attempted during that term. Each letter grade has a grade point value as follows:
Grade

A

NR
Not Reported (Grade not reported by instructor)
To receive a grade of “W,” students must withdraw officially through the Enrollment
Services Office by executing the appropriate form prior to the announced
deadline (see academic calendar). Students who do not officially withdraw will be
assigned a grade by the instructor.
