Grade equivalents included in calculation of averages:
|A+ 4.33||A 4.00 Excellent||A- 3.67|
|B+ 3.33||B 3.00 Good||B- 2.67|
|C+ 2.33||C 2.00 Fair||C- 1.67|
|D+ 1.33||D 1.00 Passing||D- .67|
|E 0.00 Failing||EW 0.00 Withdrew Failing|
- Total the grade equivalents from the list above.
- Divide total by the number of grades.
- Round to two decimal places.
Sample GPA Calculation
A, B+, B-, C+
4.00+3.33+2.67+2.33 = 12.33
Fall GPA = 12.33/4 = 3.08
B-, C+, C, D-, E
2.67+2.33+2.00+0.67+0.00 = 7.67
Spring GPA = 7.67/5 = 1.53
12.33+7.67 = 20.00/9 or 2.22

A 12 point grade system was used from 1953-54 to 1979-80 with A+ equal to 12 and E (failing) equal to a -1.
From 1980-81 to 1983-84, the 12 point system was used with an A+ equal to 12 points, but the E (failing) equal to 0 points.
Since the 1984-85 academic year, the college grading system has been on a 4 point system.
