The University's cumulative GPA is based solely on courses taken in residence at the UW; this includes some, but not all, courses taken through UW Extension. The UW transcript also reflects grades for UW Extension course work that is not residence credit, and the grades for credit by examination. These latter grades do not affect the University cumulative GPA.

## Computation of GPA

### Examples of how to calculate your GPA:

#### Example 1:

TWRT 211 3 X 0.0 = 0.0
TMATH 324 5 X 2.9 = 14.5
TCSS 390 5 X 3.2 = 16.0
+       +
=  13 total credits attempted         =  30.5 total grade points
Total credits earned toward graduation: 10
To calculate the Grade Point Average (GPA):  30.5 ÷ 13 = 2.35 GPA
The total graded credits attempted (13 credits), not the credits earned (10), are used in computing the GPA.

#### Example 2:

TBUS 300 5 X 2.3 =

11.5

TBUS 310 5 X 2.9 = 14.5
TBUS 320 5 X I = 0.0
+       +
=  10 credits completed (5 are incomplete       = 26.0 total grade points
Total credits earned toward graduation: 10
Grade point average = 26.0 ÷ 10 = 2.60

Except in case of error, no instructor may change a grade that he or she has turned in to the Registrar. Grades cannot be changed after after a degree has been granted.
