Catalog and Student Handbook 2021 - 2022

Grade Point Average

Course credits are multiplied by the equivalent of the letter grade to yield quality points. Total quality points for the semester or year are divided by the total credits for that semester or year to yield the grade point average (GPA).

Students have to achieve at least a 2.0 cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) and maintain at least a 2.0 in each professional course to fulfill degree requirements. The following is an example of how the GPA is determined:

GPA = 53 ÷ 16 = 3.31

Transferred credits, credits by examination, and credits by exemption are not calculated in the Labouré College of Healthcare GPA.
