Credits, Quality Points, Attempted Hours, Passed Hours, Earned Hours, GPA Hours, Semester Average (Current Term), Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) and Academic Standing.
Are referred to as the total number of credit hours for a course
The figure obtained by multiplying the credit hours of a course by numerical value of the grade assigned.
The numerical value of grades are:
A = 4.0 A- = 3.7
B+ = 3.3 B = 3.0 B- = 2.7
C+ = 2.3 C = 2.0 C- = 1.7
D+ = 1.3 D = 1.0 D- = 0.7
F = 0.0
*NOTE: Grades of I, AU, W, and R have neither credit nor quality points assigned.
ATTEMPTED HOURS: Includes all credit and non-credit bearing courses with grades of 'A' - 'F', 'W' and 'I'. It also includes Transfer Credits and Excluded courses.
PASSED HOURS: Includes all credit and non-credit bearing courses with grades of 'A' - 'F'. It also includes Transfer Credits.
EARNED HOURS: Includes all credit bearing hours with grades of 'A' - 'F'. It also includes Transfer Credits.
GPA HOURS: Includes all MCC credit-bearing hours with grades of 'A' - 'F'.
SEMESTER AVERAGE - GPA for Current Term Calculate only for credit courses completed during the semester with grades of A, A-, B+,B,B-,C+,C,C-,D+,D,D- or F as follows:
1. Determine the quality points earned for each MCC credit-bearing course. 2. Total the Quality Points for all of the courses. 3. Total the Credits for all courses. 4. Divide the total Quality Points by the Credits.

27.7 ÷ 15 = 1.847 CURRENT GPA
*NOTE: The "I" grade is not used in computation of GPA. This computation is for one semester only.
CUMULATIVE AVERAGE: Cumulative average is based upon quality points and GPA hours earned at MCC. It is calculated by dividing the total quality points by the total GPA hours. **PLEASE NOTE: Transfer credit & Credit by Exam are not included in the computation of the cumulative GPA.
