GPA Calculations

Grade Point Average

A student's academic standing is indicated by his grade-point average. The average is determined by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of quality hours attempted.  Courses graded P, IN, N, M, AU, WD, DR, U, S, and WP are not computed in determining the grade-point average.

 

COURSE GRADE QUALITY HOURS ATTEMPTED CREDITS EARNED TOTAL QUALITY POINTS
Writing Effective Prose A 3 3 12.0
Teaching Reading B+ 3 3 9.9
U.S. History 1 P 0 3 0.0
Calculus 1 C 4 4 8.0
10 13 29.9

Only courses taken at William Paterson University of New Jersey will be computed in determining the grade-point average.
A minimum average of "C" (2.0) is required in both the major and overall academic work on the undergraduate level and 3.0 on the graduate level.
