The overall quality of a student's work for a semester is measured by Quality Point Average or QPA, while the quality of all the work a student has done at the College through one or more semesters is indicated by Cumulative Point Average or CPA. The student's QPA is determined in the following manner:
Using quality points for each grade as defined in the Grading System section, multiply the number of quality points equivalent to the letter grade received in each course by the number of credit hours for the course to get total quality points received for the course. Divide the sum of the quality points received in all courses by the total number of credit hours. Round to the nearest hundredth. The quotient represents the student's Quality Point Average for the semester.
The student's CPA is determined just as the QPA is, except that the CPA includes all work completed at the College that is applicable to the curriculum in which the student is enrolled. In the event a course is repeated, the highest grade and quality points are used in the computation of the CPA.
|Course||Total Credit||Grade||Quality Points||Total Quality Points|
|BHS 103||3||A -||3.67||11.01|
CPA = 38.33/17 = 2.25
