What is the difference between College GPA hours vs College earned hours?
A GPA is a students grade point average, calculated on the
grades received for each course. There is a semester GPA, and a
cumulative (total) GPA. Earned credit hours are the amount of
credits completed successfully (D or higher). Just remember a D is
a minimum pass and can bring our GPA below a 2.0 (C) average which
could lead to dismissal. In addition, D grades will not transfer to
other colleges and universities.
The GPA is calculated by adding up the total quality points and
dividing that number by the number of credits completed. Each grade
is assigned a number of quality points. For example, A = 12 quality
points, B+ = 10.5, B=9, etc..
