35.2 Grade Point Average (GPA)

GPA is calculated by taking the number of grade points a student earned in a given period of time divided by the total number of credits taken. All graduate credits attempted and all graduate grades earned, whether passing or failing, will be used to calculate a student’s grade point average. The student’s grade point average appears on his or her transcript.
