Grade Point Average (GPA)

A numerical value derived from dividing the number of grade points earned by the number of credits attempted on a regular grade basis. P-NC, incomplete, grades removed by repeat and audit grades and transfer credits have no effect on grade point average. Only those courses attempted at UW-Green Bay are included in a student’s grade point average. Transfer grades may be used to compute eligibility for admission to certain programs/majors.

Example of GPA for a Semester

Course Grade Credits Grade Points
SOC WORK 702 A 3 12
MGMT 796 BC 4 10
SOC WORK 703 B 4 12
SOC WORK 704 b 3 09
Total 14 43

(An A is equal to 4 grade points, a B is equal to 3, and so forth. Three credits earning an A grade equals 12 points.)
43 divided by 14 equals 3.07 grade point average.
