Calculating a Grade Point Average (GPA)

The GPA is calculated by multiplying the credits earned by the grade points for each course separately to calculate the quality points. All the quality points are then added together, and the total is divided by credits earned, including credits for "F" grades that have not been repeated.

Example:

BUSM-245 1.5 credits—grade: B+
CULP-115 3.0 credits—grade: C

1.5 CREDITS x 3.33 (B+) = 4.995 QUALITY POINTS
3.0 CREDITS x 2.00 (C) = 6.00 QUALITY POINTS

4.5 TOTAL CREDITS = 10.995 TOTAL QUALITY POINTS

10.995 (TOTAL QUALITY POINTS) ÷ 4.5 (TOTAL CREDITS)
= 2.44 GPA
