Grade Point Average

Computing Your Grade Point Average

To determine your semester grade point average, multiply the number of credits for a class by the number of points awarded for the grade received. Then divide the total number of grade points earned that semester by the number of credits attempted that semester. Credits that do not generate grade points, such as credits for developmental courses, are not included in the calculation of credits attempted. The cumulative grade point average is
determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned in all courses by the total number of credits attempted.

A = 4 points Excellent
B = 3 points Good
C = 2 points Average
D = 1 point Poor
F = 0 points Failure

Developmental credits are NOT included in GPA computation. You do not receive grade points for grades of P, R, S, U, or for grades of W (withdrawal), I (incomplete), or X (audit).

For more information on GPA, consult Academic Regulations in the TCC Student Handbook or an academic advisor or counselor.
