Grade Point Average

Your semester grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points earned (grade equivalent quality points times credit hours for the course) that semester by the total amount of graded credit hours attempted that semester. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to a 4.0. P/NP (Pass/No Pass) courses are not factored in the GPA. The following marks do not receive grade points and do not have an effect on the GPA: I, WIP, S, U, W, L, and NR.

To calculate your cumulative GPA, total the graded credit hours and then the grade points from all semesters. Divide the total grade points by the total credit hours.

Students who have been readmitted to Muskingum after seven calendar years from their previous enrollment may choose not to carry the cumulative GPA from the prior enrollment.
