The grade-point average (GPA) is a general measure of the student's academic achievement while at Appalachian.  The GPA is determined by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of quality hours attempted ("quality points" and "quality hours" are derived from courses graded A-F or WF).  The GPA is computed only on the basis of coursework taken at Appalachian. At the end of each grading period grades are given in each course by letters which indicate the quality of work done by the student.

A   excellent, 4 grade points per semester hour.
A-  excellent, 3.7 grade points per semester hour.
B+  above average, 3.3 grade points per semester hour.
B   above average, 3 grade points per semester hour.
B-  above average, 2.7 grade points per semester hour.
C+  average, 2.3 grade points per semester hour.
C   average, 2 grade points per semester hour.
C-  average, 1.7 grade points per semester hour.
D+  below average but passing, 1.3 grade points per semester hour.
D   below average but passing, 1 grade point per semester hour.
D-  below average but passing, .7 grade point per semester hour.
F   failure, 0 grade points.
P   pass, 0 grade points (used only for courses taken on pass-fail basis).
F*   failure, 0 grade points (*indicates only that the course was taken on the pass-fail basis; this grade is equivalent

I    incomplete, because of sickness or some other unavoidable cause.  An "I" becomes an "F" if not removed
