The number of grade points obtained by a student in any course shall be computed by multiplying the number of credits in the course by the grade-point equivalent of the grade in the course as specified in Section 47-60. Courses taken under the satisfactory/unsatisfactory grading system are not used in computing grade points.
Example: HIST 020, 3 credits, grade B, produces 9 grade points,
and MATH 006, 3 credits, grade F, gives 0 grade points.
Revisions to Policy 51-50 were approved by the Senate on April 29, 2014. Implementation pending ACUE action. To view revisions, see the legislative report.
A student's cumulative grade-point average is the weighted mean value of all grade points (see Section 51-30) earned either by enrollment or examinations in courses at the University. The cumulative GPA for a student who is completing more than one undergraduate major program, either a sequential or concurrent degree, will be computed using the grades earned in all courses taken at the University, except for the following: (Note: the words student and undergraduate student are used to designate a baccalaureate or associate degree candidate, a provisional student, or a nondegree student.)

A grade-point deficiency for a student exists when total grade points are less than total credits scheduled multiplied by two.
Example: At the end of the second semester, a student who has scheduled a total of 36 credits and who has earned 66 grade points would have a grade-point deficiency of 6 and would be placed on academic warning. (36 credits x 2=72; 72-66=6)
Courses for which "no grade" and "deferred grade" symbols have been recorded are not included in the computation of grade-point deficiency.
