HOW TO COMPUTE A GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)

1. Total the "equivalents" from the list above for each grade received.  
   (4.33 for each A+, 2.00 for each C, 0.00 for each E, etc.)

2. Divide this total by the number of grades or equivalents included 
   and round to 2 decimal places.

   Fall Semester grades	A, B+, B-, C+	  4.00+3.33+2.67+2.33 = 12.33
   Fall GPA = 12.33/4 = 3.08

   Spring Semester grades B-, C+, C, D-, E	2.67+2.33+2.00+0.67+0.00 = 7.67
   Spring GPA = 7.67/5 = 1.53

   Cumulative GPA	12.33+7.67 = 20.00/9 or 2.22
