Grade Point Average
Your grade point average (GPA) results from the number of quality points (or grade points) divided by the number of credit hours.
Quality points (or grade points) are points assigned to the grade earned, i.e. A=4,… (see grading table above.)
NCCC uses two different GPA’s:
- Cumulative grade point average (cum GPA) – the GPA from all the courses you have taken at NCCC which is displayed on your academic transcript.
- Degree grade point average (degree GPA) – the GPA from ONLY those courses taken which apply toward your degree program (or major) which is used for graduation.
Graduation at NCCC is based on a 2.00 minimum Degree GPA. If you have switched your major or taken coursework outside your degree program, it is possible some of these courses will not apply to your Degree GPA.
PSY 110, A, 3 credits
CIS 100, B+, 3 credits
PSY 110 (A = 4 pts x 3 credits) = 12 pts
CIS 100 (B+ = 3.33 x 3 credits) = 9.99 pts
GPA: 21.99 (total quality points) divided by 6 (total credit hours) = 3.67
