Evaluations and Grade Values



The grade point average is calculated by (1) multiplying the credits by the grade value which determines quality points; (2) adding the total number of quality points; (3) adding the total number of credits; (4) dividing the quality points by the quality hours. Transfer courses are not calculated in the grade point average, but are calculated in the grade point average for inter-institution courses.
