|Definition of:||Credits, Quality Points, Attempted Hours, Passed Hours, Earned Hours, GPA Hours, Semester Average (Current Term), Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) and Academic Standing.|
|CREDITS:||Are referred to as the total number of credit hours for a course|
|QUALITY POINTS:||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.
|Credits||Grade||Quality Point |
|Total Quality |
|ENG 101||3||F||0||(3 X 0.0) =||0.0|
|GEO 101||4||C-||1.7||(4 X 1.7) =||6.8|
|HIS 103||3||B||3||(3 X 3.0) =||9.0|
|MAT 170||3||D+||1.3||(3 X 1.3) =||3.9|
|PE 101||2||A||4||(2 X 4.0) =||8.0|
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.
