Grade Points and Academic Average

A student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) is calculated by using only those grades earned at Carroll. A student’s GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points received by the total number of graded attempted credits. In computing this average, the following points are assigned each grade:

A 4.0 grade points per credit
A- 3.667 grade points per credit
B+ 3.333 grade points per credit
B 3.0 grade points per credit
B- 2.667 grade points per credit
C+ 2.333 grade points per credit
C 2.0 grade points per credit
C- 1.667 grade points per credit
D 1.0 grade points per credit
F 0.0 grade points per credit

Neither the notation “W” nor the grade “P” is computed when calculating the grade point average of a student.
