How does the grading system work?
Grade point averages (GPA) are used to measure the quality of academic work and are computed on a 4.0 scale. The chart below lists letter grades and their correspondence to grade point. Since grading standards differ among colleges, grades received from other colleges are not used in calculating GPA. Transfer grades may be used to determine eligibility for admission to certain programs.
|Grade Points per Credit
|(a "C" grade or better for undergraduate courses)
|(No credit, the letter grade of less than a "C")
|No Acceptable report for instructor-temporary grade
|No Effect until acceptable grade submitted
|Incomplete, temporary grade
|No Effect until removed
|(^) examples (A) or (F)
|(^) grades that were academically forgiven. Successful grades will still meet course requirements, credits towards total to graduate but are not calculated into the overall cumulative GPA, nor is honors granted using these prior credits earned.
How do I calculate my GPA?
Your cumulative grade point average includes all the terms you complete at UW-Green Bay. It is calculated by dividing the total grade points by the total credits earned. If you get an F, the 0.0 grade is also included in grade point calculations unless you successfully repeat the course. Use the GPA calculator to calculate your grade point average.
What is my class standing?
Class standing is determined by the number of earned credits a student has completed. Class levels are defined as:
|23 or fewer earned credits
|24 to 53 earned credits
|54 to 83 earned credits
|84 or more earned credits
