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 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.
