Grade Point Average

Grade points earned for each course are determined by multiplying the number of points for each grade by the number of credit hours the course carries.  For example, a student who takes a three-hour course and earns an “A” accumulates 12 grade points for that course (3 hours X 4 points for an A = 12 points).  A student’s grade point average is computed by adding the grade point values for all college-level courses for which grade point values may be computed (A, B, C, D, F, FA, U, WF), and dividing this total by the number of credit hours attempted during the same period.  Only hours for which grades are awarded are used in calculating the grade point average (GPA).

Term Grade Point Average                                                                   
The Term GPA is computed for all TSTC college-level courses with grades of A, B, C, D, and F recorded during a specific term. Developmental education courses are excluded from the Term GPA calculation.
Cumulative Grade Point Average                                                      
The Cumulative GPA is computed for all college-level courses using all grades and grade points earned since enrolling at TSTC. Developmental education courses are excluded from the Cumulative GPA calculation.  The Cumulative GPA is used to qualify students for graduation and for graduation honors. The Cumulative GPA appears on the TSTC official transcript.

Standards of Progress Grade Point Average                               
A Term and Cumulative Standards of Progress GPA is computed using all TSTC college-level and developmental education courses.  The Standards of Progress GPAs are used for determining scholastic standing, term scholastic honors and financial aid eligibility.  See ‘Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress’ in the Financial Aid section for more information.
