Undergraduate Grade Point Average (GPA)

Current Term GPA

The current term GPA appears on the unofficial transcript after each term. The sum of quality points (grade points x credits) earned within the current term is divided by the number of UNF hours attempted that term (except those hours with grades of X, I, P, NR, W, WM, WS, WD, and WP). The resulting quotient is the current term GPA. Example:

ENC1101         A- 3.7                  3   11.1
BSC1010C C 2.0                   4     8.0
MAC1105     B+ 3.3          3     9.9
MAR3023 F 0.0          3     0.0
Total                 13       29.0

The total of 29 grade points earned divided by 13 credits attempted equals 2.23 current term GPA.

Upper Level GPA

The sum of all UNF upper level quality points earned is divided by the number of all UNF upper level hours attempted (except those hours with grades of X, I, P, NR, W, WM, WS, WD, and WP, and UNF hours repeated for which the grade forgiveness or term forgiveness policy was subsequently invoked). The resulting quotient is the upper level GPA.

Cumulative GPA

The cumulative GPA appears on the unofficial transcript after each term. The sum of all UNF quality points earned as of a particular term is divided by the number of all UNF hours attempted by the conclusion of that term (except those hours with grades of X, I, P, NR, W, WM, WS, WD, and WP, and UNF hours repeated for which the grade forgiveness or term forgiveness policy was subsequently invoked). The resulting quotient is the cumulative GPA.

Total Institutional GPA

The total institutional GPA appears on the unoffical transcript after each term. The sum of all UNF quality points earned is divided by the number of all UNF hours attempted (except those hours with grades of X, I, P, NR, W, WM, WS, WD, and WP, and UNF hours repeated for which the grade forgiveness or term forgiveness policy was subsequently invoked). The resulting quotient is the total institutional GPA.

Total Transfer GPA

The total transfer GPA is calculated using those courses UNF considers transferable. The sum of quality points earned in transferable courses from other institutions is divided by the number of semester hours transferable from other institutions. The resulting quotient is the total transfer GPA.

Overall GPA

The overall GPA appears on the unofficial transcript after each term. The sum of all quality points earned at UNF and in transferable courses from other institutions is divided by the number of all UNF hours attempted  (except those hours with grades of X, I, P, NR, W, WM, WS, WD, and WP, and UNF hours repeated for which the grade forgiveness or term forgiveness policy was subsequently invoked) plus the number of semester hours transferable from other institutions. The resulting quotient is the overall GPA.
