Each letter grade awarded to a student for a course is assigned a point value as noted above. A student may determine the grade points for each course by multiplying the number of points the grade is worth times the number of credit hours the course carries.
Thus, a "B" letter grade (worth 3 points) in a three-credit hour course is worth 9 points, and an "A" (worth 4 points) in the same three-credit hour course is worth 12 points.
The grade-point average is found by adding the total point values for all courses and dividing by the total number of credit hours attempted during the same period of time.
