How It's Calculated
The grade point average is obtained by multiplying academic credits by grade point value for the grade assigned in each course and dividing the sum of the grade points by the total number of academic credits attempted. Note: Courses marked NG, W, P, NP, or I are not included in the calculation of the GPA.
Grade Point Average
How to Determine Grade Point Average
Multiply Credits by Grade Points
3 x 3.67 = 11.01
3 x 3.33 = 9.99
3 x 2.67 = 8.01
Add all Grade Point Totals
11.01 + 9.99 + 8.01 = 29.01
Add all credits
3 + 3 + 3 = 9
Divide Grade Point Total by Credit Total
29.01 / 9 = 3.22
GPA = 3.22
Dean's List and President's List Eligibility
Dean’s Lists of students achieving superior standing are issued once each semester for full-time students and once each academic year for part-time students.
The grade requirement, with some exceptions, is a grade point average of at least 3.0 and no grade below C. There are exceptions to this based on school/college.

To be placed on the President’s List, the student must maintain a GPA of at least a 3.75 and receive grades of C or better during the period in question.
