Grade Point Average (GPA)
Grade point averages are calculated by dividing grade points earned by the credit hours attempted. The following is an example of a gradepoint average computation:
Credit Hours  Grade Points 
Attempted 

Grade  
Earned 
5  x  3.0  =  15.0 
3  x  4.0  =  12.0 
4  x  2.0  =  8.0 
5  x  1.0  =  5.0 
1  x  0.0  =  0.0 
18   40.0 
Dividing 40.0 by 18 computes to a gradepoint average of 2.22.
