Guidelines for the Calculation of Grade Point Average

The grade point average (GPA) is a numerical representation of a student’s overall academic achievement. The grade point average is the quotient obtained by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credit hours in which a student receives a ‘letter’ grade. Decimals beyond two places are truncated, not rounded, in computing the grade point average.
