Grade Point Average

Grade point averages (g.p.a.'s) are computed at the end of each semester and on a cumulative basis. The numerical values of letter grades are:

A+=4.0

A=4.0

A-=3.7

B+=3.3

B=3.0

B-=2.7

C+=2.3

C=2.0

C-=1.7

D+=1.3

D=1.0

There is no D-

F=0.00

  

 

The g.p.a. is calculated by multiplying the course unit value for each course (usually 1 c.u.) by the numerical equivalent of the grade received. The total for all courses is then divided by the total number of course units taken.

Students may calculate the g.p.a. for a selected group of courses (major or minor courses, for example), by using the “g.p.a. calculator” function of the Academic Planning worksheet on Penn InTouch.
