    Calculating Your GPA

    The grade point average is determined by dividing the total number of quality points by the total hours attempted. (Attempted hours = all courses taken on a letter-graded basis at Capital). Grade point averages are used to determine academic status.

     

    EXAMPLE:
    Courses are 3 credits each.
    A 4.0
    B- 2.67
    B 3.0
    A- 3.67
    C 2.0
    A 4.0

     

    Take the quality points and multiply by the credit hours of the course, then add all together to get the quality points.
    4 x 3 =12
    2.67 x 3 = 8.01
    3 x 3 =9
    3.67 x 3 = 11.01
    2 x3 =6
    4 x 3 =12

     
    Total Quality Points = 58.02
    Total Attempted Hours = 18
    Quality Points/ Attempted Hours = GPA
    58.02/18 = 3.223
