Grade Point Average

The GPA is the most important example of a student’s academic progress. The computation of a GPA is shown below as an example to simplify the average. It is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours attempted, excluding I, W, CE, AU, MT, EL, AP, TR, AR, CL, AF, BF, CF, DF, FF, P, R, and grades made in developmental courses. The cumulative GPA is based on all eligible grades while a student is enrolled at Cleveland Community College as a curriculum student. The current GPA is based on one term’s work (current) for all eligible grades.
