Grades and Honors
Information and Grading Table
Figure Your GPA (Grade Point Average): To calculate grade point
average, first multiply the number of credits each course is worth by
the point value for the letter grade earned in that course. A = 4 points
per credit; B = 3; C = 2; D = 1 point, IW and F = 0 points. This
calculation will give you the grade points for each course. Next, total
the grade points of all courses for that semester and divide it by the
number of credit hours attempted. The result is your GPA.
