Grade points are awarded for each credit on the basis of grades as follows:
Thus, if a student completes a three-credit course with a grade of A, twelve (12) grade points are awarded. To calculate the grade point average (G.P.A.) for a given semester, a student should divide the number of grade points awarded by the number of credits attempted (excluding withdrawals and developmental courses). The official G.P.A. is rounded to two decimal places.
To calculate the cumulative G.P.A., the total number of grade points awarded is divided by the total number of credits attempted (excluding withdrawals) in all sessions at Monmouth University. Calculation of a major GPA includes all courses falling under the major/interdisciplinary portion of a program.
Grades received in developmental courses are not counted in the computation of the student’s semester or cumulative grade point averages. Refer to Repeating a Course for a discussion of repeating a course and its impact on the G.P.A.
