Computation of Grade Point Average

The number of grade points earned in a course is obtained by multiplying the number of semester hours for the course by the number of grade points per credit hour for the grade received in the course. The cumulative grade point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of grade points received by the total number of semester hours in courses in which grades have been received.
