Grade Points and Grade Point Averages (GPA)

UNC Greensboro uses a credit hour and grade point system for evaluating undergraduates. Credit hours represent the number of course hours completed. Grade points are determined by the number of credits attempted and the grades earned.

The grade point average is determined by dividing the accumulated number of grade points earned by the accumulated number of semester hours undertaken. Hours attempted but not passed must be included in this calculation. However, a second F or WF in the same course is not used in computing the grade point average. Courses graded on the P/NP or S/U basis and courses transferred from another institution may not be used in determining the UNC Greensboro grade point average.

Courses taken through cross-registration with another institution are considered transfer credits. Grades do not appear on the UNC Greensboro transcript and are not calculated in the GPA.

Beginning with courses taken in Fall 1996, plus/minus grades are incorporated into the GPA for all undergraduates.
