Grading Procedures

Your grade point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the point value of each grade by the credit value designated for each course. The sum of these figures is divided by the number of credits. A minimum of 2.0 GPA is needed to maintain satisfactory academic standing and is required for graduation. GPAs are figured on a 4.0 scale. The point equivalents are listed below. It is the student's responsibility to consult with his/her instructors as to his/her progress.
