  • Grades - Hesston College
    How is my GPA calculated The grade point average GPA is determined by dividing total quality points by the total hours attempted To calculate your GPA follow these steps Determine the quality points earned for each course by multiplying the number of credit hours by the quality points associated with the grade For example if you earn a grade of C two quality points in a four hour course multiply two quality points by four credits Thus you have earned eight quality points for that course If you earn an A in a three hour class multiply four by three Do this for each course in which you were enrolled Add together the quality points earned in all classes combined Divide that total by the total hours attempted including failed courses For example if you earned a total of 48 quality points and had attempted 15 hours divide 48 by 15 Your GPA for that term is 3 20 Even if you earned a no credit NC in some of the attempted hours you still must divide by 15 Can I do anything to change a low grade The only way to improve a low final grade is to repeat the course at Hesston College When courses are repeated the first attempt remains on your record But only the hours and the grade earned with the second attempt are used in calculating your grade point average even if the grade is poorer the second time Taking a similar course even with the same name at another college is not considered a repeat for GPA purposes If you suspect that a grade was given in error contact the course instructor The instructor can authorize a grade change in such cases An appeal of a final grade must be submitted no later
