Grade Point Average (GPA)

Except where otherwise specified, Grade Point Average (GPA) refers to the local GPA (courses attempted at LAPU) as opposed to the career GPA (courses attempted both at LAPU and elsewhere).

The GPA is determined by dividing the number of grade points by the number of credits the student has attempted. Courses with the following grades are not included in the GPA calculation: CR, IN, IP, NC, and  W. When a course is repeated only the last attempt is used in computing the GPA unless the course is designated as repeatable. See the Undergraduate Grading Policy and Graduate Grading Policy for the points associated with each grade.
