Quality Points/Grade Point Average
A student’s level of scholarship is determined by the following system of quality points per semester hour of credit:
Grade point averages are determined by dividing the total number of quality points by the total number of credit hours for which a student has been graded. For example, a grade of C in a three-credit-hour course is equivalent to six quality points.
The following grades do not yield quality points and are not added into the divisor in the GPA calculation:
|S||Satisfactory indicates meeting minimum criteria for passing the course|
|U||Unsatisfactory indicates failure to meet minimum criteria for passing the course.|
|W||Withdrew from institution prior to end of week 10|
|WP||Withdrew from institution after week 10, passing course at time of withdrawal|
|WF||Withdrew from institution after week 10, failing course at time of withdrawal|
|NR||Not reported by faculty|
The grade point average is computed each semester to determine GPA. After the first semester, the cumulative GPA is computed by dividing the total number of quality points earned to date by the total number of credit hours completed to date. The GPA is computed only on credits earned at Morrisville. Transfer credit from other colleges is not included in the computation.
