Grade Point Average

A student's grade point average (GPA) is determined by adding all grade points and dividing by the sum of all credits passed and failed. All courses attempted, except pass/no credit and audit, enter into the grade point average. If a course is repeated, credits are counted only once, and the grade from the last attempt is used in computing the GPA. 

Grade Reports/Transcripts

After each term, students are graded on course work completed. Grades are not mailed; instead students may access term grades and print unofficial transcripts through eServices. Students may request an official transcript for a minimal fee through the National Student Clearinghouse (see Current Students > Registrar's Office > Transcript Request ). Transcripts will not be released for students who have a delinquent financial obligation or financial "hold" at the college, unless otherwise required by law.
