ESSENTIAL DEFINITIONS:

QUALITY POINT AVERAGE 

Your QPA determines whether you are in good academic standing at the University. It is figured by dividing the total number of quality points by the number of applicable credits.

Quality points are assigned to each grade as follows:

GPA
A=4.0 B+ = 3.3 C+ = 2.3 D+ = 1.3 F = 0.0
A-=3.7 B = 3.0 C = 2.0 D = 1.0  
  B- = 2.7 C- = 1.7    

GPA Calculator

This will calculate your QPA based on a letter grade and the number of credits per course.

You may need a certain grade point average to get into college or graduate school. You may just be trying to squeak by after a bad semester or exam. This calculator can show you the grades you need to get the QPA you want.

Present, overall, and predicted QPA calculators

The quality points earned for a course are computed by multiplying the credits for the course by the quality point value of the grade received (e.g., an A- in a 3 credit course earns 3 X 3.7 = 11.1 quality points. The applicable credits are the credits you've attempted minus credits for courses in which you've received Is (incompletes), Ss (pass in pass/fail courses), Ts (transferred courses), or for which an NR (no grade reported by your instructor) is recorded.
