Count 60 semester (90 quarter) hours backward from your graduation semester (quarter). If the 60 semester (90 quarter) hours falls in the middle of a semester, use the entire semester. You may use more than 60 semester (90 quarter) hours, but no less than 57 (87).
Grades are calculated on the following scale: A=4, A- =3.75, B+=3.25, B=3, B- =2.75, C+=2.25, C=2, C- =1.75, D+=1.25, D=1, D- =.75, F=0, I=0.
If the credit hour calculation includes S (Satisfactory) or P (Pass) grades, subtract their hourly count from the total hours (once you’ve reached the required 60 semester or 90 quarter hours). For example: you counted 60 semester hours and there are 6 hours of S grades. Subtract the 6 hours from the 60 hours, and the resulting number 54 is your total credit hours to be used in the GPA calculation. The following grades are skipped completely and not included in the GPA calculation: W (Withdrawn), WP (Withdrawn Passing), WF (Withdrawn Failing), NC (No Credit), AU (Audit), U (Unsatisfactory), and CR (Credit only). If there is grade forgiveness, both grades are used.
Multiply the points assigned to a grade (A=4, B=3, etc) by the number of credit hours assigned to that grade for each grade in the 60 semester (90 quarter) hours to obtain the quality grade points. Divide the total quality grade points by the total number of semester (quarter) credit hours to figure the GPA.
