Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA)
Cumulative GPA - indicates the quality of all work a student has completed at the college through one or more semesters for courses that are numbered 100 and above only.
- A, B, C, D, E, WF and F - used in the calculation of a GPA.
- W, AW, S, U, AU, CR and NC - not used in the calculation of a GPA.
- I (incomplete) - used in the calculation when completed within 120 calendar days after the last day of the semester. A failing grade (F) will be recorded by the college registrar for courses not completed. Under extreme circumstances, a student may obtain an extension if the instructor involved files a formal, written extension form in the Records office.

Lower than 2.0 GPA or Suspension
Satisfactory academic progress is defined as the attainment of a 2.0 cumulative GPA or higher.
Midterm grade reports are sent to students. Students receiving a D or an F at midterm should meet with their instructor, counselor, or tutor.
Final grades for developmental and general studies courses do not appear on a student’s official college transcript and are not counted in the official grade point average (GPA), but they are mailed to the student. Those grades will appear on a "mixed" transcript or "all history" transcript.
Students with outstanding financial obligations to the college at the end of a semester do not receive a final grade report until the obligation is paid.
