Academic Advisement - How to Calculate Your GPA

Three Academic Grade Point Averages are displayed on students' transcripts:

  • Institutional GPA: determined by dividing the total quality points earned by the total hours attempted on all course work taken at Armstrong only.
  • Transfer GPA: determined by dividing the total quality points earned by the total hours attempted on all transfer course work taken at other institutions.
  • Overall GPA: determined by dividing the total quality points earned by the total hours attempted on all course work taken at Armstrong and elsewhere.

The GPA is computed by dividing the number of attempted hours into the total quality points, or honor points, earned. Grades of W (Withdrawn) are excluded from the GPA computation, but WF (Withdrawn Failing) grades are included.

A fourth GPA, the Hope GPA, is calculated for HOPE Scholarship recipients. All attempted hours and corresponding grades as shown on official transcripts are counted toward the HOPE cumulative grade point average, including remedial study. Additionally, withdrawals are counted as attempted hours even if there is no academic penalty. Students must have a 3.0 HOPE GPA at the end of each Spring semester to maintain HOPE eligibility.
