your GPA (Grade Point Average)
here for an online GPA calculator
Each letter grade is awarded 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
HIS 133 -- grade earned A.
A = 4 points
------ these are your Quality
HIS 133 is a 3
hour course ------ these are your Quality
4 x 3
12 / 3
= 4.000 --- this total is your GPA
When a course is repeated, the last grade earned in
the course is calculated into the GPA. For example MTH
143 is taken 3 separate times: 1st grade D, 2nd grade
D, 3rd grade F. Due to the last time the course was
taken a grade of "F" was earned, the "F"
is calcluated into the GPA even though a higher grade
of "D" was once earned.
A course may be repeated mulitple times in an attempt
to earn a higher grade; however, a course taken 3 or
more times is subject to extra fees.
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.
ALL grades remain on SFA transcript, even when the course
is repeated and a higher grade is earned.
