Figuring Your GPA

School of Business Administration

A grade point average (GPA) is based on the total number of quality points earned divided by the total number of credit hours accumulated. For determining the total number of quality points earned, use the quality point chart below.

Step 1: Looking at the chart below, take the number of credit hours of the course, scroll across until the column corresponds with the grade you received and this will give you the total number of quality points that you earned for that class. For example, a 4-credit B is equivalent to 12 quality points. To figure your business GPA, complete this process for all PSU courses beginning with the following prefixes: ACTG, BA, FIN, ISQA, MGMT, or MKTG. NOTE: Business minor courses do not count in a business students GPA, these courses are BA 306, 316, 326, 336, & 346.

Step 2: Add up all of your grade points.

Step 3: Add up all accumulated business credits.

Step 4: Divide your total quality points by the total number of business credit hours. This will give you your total business GPA.

Note: If you have repeated a course in which you received a "D" or "F" use the repeat grade in the calculation and drop out the original grade. If you have repeated a course more than once you may drop out the original grade only; you must use all of the repeat hours and points in the calculation. You must fill out a “repeat of grade” form (found in SBA 240 or the lobby of Neuberger Hall) and submit it to the Neuberger Hall registration windows to officially remove the first grade from your PSU GPA, it will always remain on your transcript.
