GPA Computation

You earn grade (quality) points on the following basis:

  • 4 quality points per unit of A,
  • 3.7 quality points per unit of A-,
  • 3.3 quality points per unit of B+,
  • 3 quality points per unit of B,
  • 2.7 quality points per unit of B-,
  • 2.3 quality points per unit of C+,
  • 2 quality points per unit of C,
  • 1.7 quality points per unit of C-,
  • 1.3 quality points per unit of D+,
  • and 1 quality point per unit of D.
  • A grade of "F" or "WU" earns no quality points.

Your grade point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total number of quality hours (units attempted), whether or not they were passed (but excluding "CR/NC" courses and those in which administrative grades were assigned except for the "WU"), into the number of quality (grade) points earned. A 2.00 (C) average in all college/university courses, all Cal State East Bay courses, and all major courses is required for a baccalaureate degree (excluding "CR," "NC," "W," and "AU" grades). All courses required by a major, including those in other departments, must be included in the calculation of the major GPA.

"CR" and "NC" grades and units are not included in your GPA calculation.

"RP" and "I" grades and units are not included in your GPA calculation. An "RP" or "I" grade becomes an "F" if you do not complete the coursework in the specified time frame. The "F" will be included in your GPA calculation in the quarter in which the "RP" or "I" changes.

"WU" grades are regarded the same as "F's" in your GPA calculation.

"RD" grades and units are not included in your GPA.

"W" grades and units are not included in your GPA.
