                How to Calculate your GPA

                    The grade point average (GPA) listed at the end of each semester is for that semester only. The
                    cumulative grade point average is shown only when a degree has been granted. The cumulative
                    grade point average does not include the course with grades other than A through F. The graduate
                    cumulative grade point average includes only graduate-level courses.

                    To calculate the cumulative grade point average, divide the sum of the quality points by the sum of
                    semesters hours:

        GPA = Total Quality Points divided by Hours Attempted
        Quality Points = Grade Point Value multiplied by Course Credit Value

DIPLOMA'S, BACHELOR’S AND MASTER’S GRADING SYSTEM:
Diploma's, Bachelor’s and Master’s students are graded on the same scale.
