The number of Quality Points earned is determined by multiplying the grade point value earned by the credits granted for that course. For example, a student receiving a grade of C in a three credit course would receive 6 Quality Points. (i.e., grade point value of 2.0 times the 3 credits successfully completed). The semester Quality Point average is determined by dividing the total of the Quality Points earned in the semester by the sum of credits successfully completed.
The cumulative Quality Point Average (QPA) is the total of all quality points acquired divided by the total of all credits attempted. For example, 26 quality points divided by 13 credits equals a 2.0 QPA
