FOR TUTORING / ACADEMIC ASSISTANCE AT URI
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:
|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|
This will calculate your QPA based on a letter grade and the number of credits per course.
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.
