The grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned in courses by the total number of credits attempted. Courses which do not generate grade points are not included in credits attempted. Semester GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned in courses attempted for the semester by the total number of credits attempted.
The cumulative GPA, which includes all courses attempted, is computed each semester and is maintained on a continuing basis as a record of the student’s academic standing. When students repeat a course, only the last grade earned is counted in the computation of the cumulative GPA.
Curriculum GPA, which includes only those courses applicable to the student’s curriculum, is computed in order to ensure that the student satisﬁes the 2.000 graduation requirements for that curriculum. The student’s permanent record reﬂects all courses attempted by a student at PDCCC.
