Grade points shall be calculated by assigning values to each grade. Blinn College is on a four-point grading system. For each semester hour a grade of A has 4 grade points; B, 3 grade points; C, 2 grade points; D, 1 grade point; F, 0 grade point; QF, 0 grade point. The maximum grade point score is 4.00 representing an A average. Grades of F and QF will be used in the GPA computation. The grade point average is found by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the number of hours attempted.
All grades earned while enrolled at Blinn College shall be used in computing a student’s Blinn College GPA, except grades of I, W, Q, NP, P, FS and CR. The computation of a student’s Blinn College Graduation GPA shall include transfer coursework, but shall not include developmental coursework.
The highest grade of a repeated course is used in determining cumulative grade point average. A grade of “W” or “Q” does not replace a grade of “F” or higher in a repeated course but a grade of “F” does replace a grade of W” or “Q.” Blinn College Board Policy EGA (LOCAL)
