University's Grading System

Only letter graded courses receive a numerical value.

A+ = 98.3        C- = 71.7

A = 95.0          D+ = 68.3

A- = 91.7         D = 65.0

B+ = 88.3        D- = 61.7

B = 85.0          E+ = 58.3

B- = 81.7         E = 55.0

C+ = 78.3        E- = 51.7

C = 75.0          F = 45.0

Converting Grade to Numeric Value

The grade needs to be converted to its numeric value and then multiplied by the credit value of the course. Then sum these computed values for all courses and divide it by the sum of the credits.

Example:

Psyc 105 - A for 1.00 credit = 95.0 x 1.0 = 95.0

Eng 111 - B for .5 credit =  85.00 x .5 = 44.5

Fren 113 - B+ for 1.5 credit = 88.3 x 1.5 = 132.45

The sum of above calculated course value is 271.95 you divide this by the sum of credits 3.0 which give the GPA of 90.65 for the total of all three courses.
