There is a built in GPA calculator in your Degree Works worksheet to assist you with this process.
Definition of: Credits, Quality Points, Semester GPA, Cumulative GPA:
CREDITS - Are referred to as "Quality Hours" or quality credit hours
QUALITY POINTS - The figure obtained by multiplying a course's credit hours by numerical value of the grade assigned. The numerical value of grades is:
|B+ = 3.3||C+ = 2.3||D+ = 1.3|
|A = 4.0||B = 3.0||C = 2.0||D = 1.0|
|A- = 3.7||B- = 2.7||C- = 1.7||D- = 0.7|
*NOTE: Grades of I, AU, W, WI and R have neither credit nor quality points assigned.
SEMESTER GPA - 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 course.
2. Total the quality points earned for each course.
3. Total the quality hours for all courses.
4. Divide the current quality points by the current quality hours.
|Course||Quality Hours||Grade||Quality Point Value||Total Quality Points|
|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 . 846 CURRENT GPA|
*NOTE: The "I" grade is not used computation of GPA. This computation is for one semester only.
CUMULATIVE GPA: Cumulative GPA is based upon total quality points and total quality hours earned at MCC.
