               How to Calculate your GPA

                    THE OLD GRADING SYSTEM:
                    The grade point average (GPA) listed at the end of each semester is for that semester only. The
                    cumulative grade point average is shown only when a degree has been granted. The cumulative
                    grade point average does not include the course with grades other than A through F. The graduate
                    cumulative grade point average includes only graduate-level courses.

                    To calculate the cumulative grade point average, divide the sum of the quality points by the sum of
                    semesters hours:

        GPA = Total Quality Points divided by Hours Attempted
        Quality Points = Grade Point Value multiplied by Course Credit Value

Undergraduate and PostGraduate Grading System for each Semester:
