GRADE POINTS

The GPA (grade point average) is computed by dividing the total number of grade points by the total number of semester hours attempted. Grades of “S,” “U,” “CR,” “W,” “EW,” “AU,” “X,” “I,” and “P” do not affect the grade point average. The following schedule of grade points is used in computing GPA:

  • A - 4 points per semester hour
  • B - 3 points per semester hour
  • C - 2 points per semester hour
  • D - 1 point per semester hour
  • EW - No points or 0 points
  • F - No points or 0 points
  • W - No points

GRADE DISPUTES

Questions regarding individual grades or how they are calculated should be directed to the course instructor. A student disputing a grade should contact the course instructor no later than 30 days after the grade is awarded. If not satisfied after consulting the instructor, the student may request a review of the grade by submitting a written request to the next level of instruction administration. The administrative hierarchy is:

  1. Department Chair or Program Director
  2. Instructional Dean
  3. Vice President of Academics and Student Services
  4. College President

Disputes involving clerical errors, such as grade transposition or data entry, will be addressed by the Student Services Office.
