Calculating Grade Point Average (GPA)
Semester and cumulative GPA will be available via Campusmate when semester grades are released. Only cumulative GPA will be noted on the Transcript of Academic Record, etc.
Semester GPA: Grade point average for a given semester
[(Number of A+ credits x 4) + (Number of A credits x 3) + (Number of B credits x 2) + (Number of C credits x 1) + (Number of F credits x 0)]
Registered credits for a given semester (excluding P/T)
Cumulative GPA: The total grade point average from enrollment until graduation
[(Number of A+ credits x 4) + (Number of A credits x 3) + (Number of B credits x 2) + (Number of C credits x 1)]
Total completed credits (excluding P/T)
* Note: Credits from letter graded Optional Subjects will NOT be calculated in the semester and cumulative GPAs.
Students Receiving a Failing Grade
An “F” (Fail) grade shall be printed on the student grade report and calculated into the GPA for the semester in question, but will not appear in ofﬁcial transcripts or student grade reports issued in semesters thereafter. “F” grades will not be calculated into the cumulative GPA. Students have the opportunity to retake a failed subject; however, subjects that have received a passing grade cannot be re-registered.
Release of Grades
A grade report for the semester, including the 1st Quarter, 2nd Quarter and Session Period, will be available to those who request one by the application deadline. Check the Academic Ofﬁce webpage for distribution dates and information on how to apply for a printed grade report. Students can also view their grades via the Campus Terminal.
Grade Report Inquiries and Evaluation Comments
Students may make inquiries regarding their grade reports within a three-day period from the day students grades are announced until 12:00 pm of the last day of the three-day period, in the circumstances shown below. Further details are available on the Graduate School and Academic Ofﬁce webpage.
1. A grade is not printed for a registered subject.
2. A grade is printed for a subject that the student was not registered for.
3. Other reasons leading to errors in the grade report.
The Academic Ofﬁce cannot respond to inquiries concerning the content of grades. However, students who are able to prove that their grade is clearly incorrect may make a formal inquiry. In such cases, the student must clearly specify their inquiry, based on the information given in the syllabus and grade comments (posted online as shown below). Inquiries that do not provide speciﬁc explanations or proof of error will not be accepted. Please follow the online instructions and submit a grade inquiry form if applicable.
Grade Evaluation Comments may be downloaded from the Academic Ofﬁce website.
