The lowest grade obtained for a repeated course will remain on the transcript with an E prefix succeeding the course code (no degree credit earned and grade does not compute in the student’s GPA).

The following grades will appear in the official transcript, but will not affect in calculation of the grade point average (GPA):

Grade Notation
Grade Description

I Incomplete N/A
AUS Audit Successful N/A
AUU Audit Unsuccessful N/A

GPA Calculation

The grade point average (GPA) for the semester is determined by multiplying the point value of the letter grade outlined above by the number of GPA credit hours. The result is the grade points earned for the semester. Then divide the total grade points by the total GPA credit hours.

The cumulative grade point average (CGPA) states the overall student’s academic standing and is based on all grades and credit hours earned to date on courses that are required for graduation.
