For each credit hour of A: 4 grade points.
For each credit hour of B: 3 grade points.
For each credit hour of C: 2 grade points.
For each credit hour of D: 1 grade point.
For each credit hour of F: 0 grade points.
The grade point average is determined by dividing the total number of grade points
earned by the total number of credit hours which the student attempted except for credit
hours in courses from which the student withdraws in good standing (see Drop and
Withdrawal Standards) or for courses in which the student receives grades such as
pass/fail and which are not considered when determining the GPA.
If an institution elects to award grades which are not considered in computing the GPA,
it must describe these in the catalog or bulletin and explain the application of such
In addition, it must provide a statement within the catalog which limits the number of
hours of such grades per semester and the maximum number of such hours a student may
receive in toto.
Finally, a single student transcript will include term and cumulative GPA calculations
which ensure that all TBR institutions treat learning support hours alike in calculating
GPA. The transcript will include the following:
A GPA comprised only of hours taken in courses numbered college level courses
1000 and above ("college only" GPA) and
A GPA comprised of hours taken in college level courses 1000 and above and hours
taken in learning support courses ("combined" GPA).
The following uses are based on each calculation:
The "college only" GPA will be used in calculating the required GPA for graduation.
The "college only" GPA will be used in determining graduation honors.
The "college only" GPA will be used in determining term honors.
The "combined" GPA will be used in determining suspension and probation.
