Grade Point Average

Grade point averages are computed and printed on the official transcript for undergraduate students only.

The University does not maintain major grade point averages (GPAs). To calculate the major GPA, multiply the number of credits for each included class by the grade point equivalent listed below and then divide the total grade points by the total credits (counting only the credits of courses taken for a letter grade).
