Plotting Your Course


Calculating your GPA (Grade Point Average)

Click here for an online GPA calculator

How it works

Each letter grade is awarded points:

Grade Points
A = 4 points
B = 3 points
C = 2 points
D = 1 point
F = 0 point
Pass/Fail = 0 point

Multiply the grade points times the number of hours the course is worth.

Then divide by the number of hours the course is worth.

For example:

HIS 133 -- grade earned A.
A = 4 points ------ these are your Quality Points
HIS 133 is a 3 hour course ------ these are your Quality Hours
4 x 3 = 12
12 / 3 = 4.000 --- this total is your GPA

Repeat Policy

When a course is repeated the first time at SFA, the higher of the two grades will be used to
calculate GPA.

IF an equivalent course is taken at another educational institution, the grade from that school does NOT replace the grade received from SFA. In order to receive replacement of a SFA grade, the course MUST BE REPEATED AT SFA.

When a course is repeated for a third or more times at SFA, ALL grades earned for that course are used to calculate GPA. In addition, three-peats are subject to extra fees.

ALL grades remain on SFA transcript, even when the course is repeated and a higher grade is earned.
