Scholastic Index

The Scholastic Index is a student’s overall GPA. To compute the Index, the number of credits taken is multiplied by the corresponding Academic Requirements, Regulations and Policies Index value of the grade received:

Grade No. of Credits

A+ 4.0

A 4.0

A- 3.7

B+ 3.3

B 3.0

B- 2.7

C+ 2.3

C 2.0

D+ 1.3

D 1.0

D- 0.7

F and WU 0.0

The totals are added, and the sum is divided by the total number of credits taken, including courses failed. For example, the Scholastic Index of a student who has completed sixty-two (62) credits with the letter grades indicated below is calculated as follows:

Grade No. of Credits Index

A 4 x 3 = 12

B 3 x 3 = 9

C 2 x 3 = 6

D 1 x 3 = 3

F 0 x 3 = 0

Total: 15 30

In the example, the Scholastic Index is: 30 ÷ 15 = 2.00 GPA

The unresolved grade of “INC” is not computed in a Scholastic Index. Upon resolution, the final letter grades that replace them are counted in the Index. Final grades of “W” and “*WN” are not computed in a Scholastic Index. The effect on the Scholastic Index of a student’s repeating a course is noted below under the sub-heading “Repeating a Course.” The minimum cumulative GPA needed for graduation is 2.0.
