Grading System - Credit Coursework

Credits are expressed in semester hours. A semester hour is 750 minutes of classroom instruction or the equivalent in laboratory hours. Semester hours are listed as attempted and earned. Hours attempted do not include those in which the student received U, S, P, W, AU or credit by exam or courses repeated. For any course that is repeated, the last grade is used for grade point average calculation. Not all credits granted are degree applicable. Unless otherwise noted, a student is considered to be in good standing.

Grade points are assigned to letter grades as follows: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1 and F=0. The total grade points accumulated are divided by the total number of hours attempted to determine the grade point average. Credit from transfer institutions will be converted to the 4-point system if different and included in the calculation.
