*Not calculated in the grade point average.
Earn – total semester hours earned that apply toward graduation requirements.
Pass – total hours passed including hours that apply toward graduation requirements along with courses passed that are not applicable to degree requirements.
Quality – total Judson hours passed and/or attempted that receive grade points (includes F, WF, and AWF).
Points – total number of grade points earned by all quality hours.
Grade Point Average (GPA) – a measure of a student's performance. The quality of a student's coursework is indicated by a session GPA. The quality of work through one or more semesters is indicated by a cumulative GPA which includes all Judson courses. A summary GPA includes all transfer work as well as Judson work.
Sess – current Judson University sessionCum – cumulative Judson University sessions Sum – cumulative Judson University and transfer course sessions
Refer to the example below to calculate the semester GPA. ESS 101 is excluded because the grade is W and BST 221 is excluded because the grade is P. Divide the 37 grade points by 15 semester hours for a semester GPA of 2.46.The cumulative GPA is determined by the same process using all A through F, WF, and AWF grades received in all courses taken at Judson University. In the example, MAT 081 is excluded because the course is below 100 level. After excluding MAT 081, 12 semester hours and 28 grade points remain. To calculate the cumulative GPA, divide the 28 grade points by 12 semester hours for a cumulative GPA of 2.33.
*A grade of "P" in a course at the 100 level and above would be included in a credit hour count of completed courses but not in GPA calculations.
Incomplete grades will be issued only for extenuating circumstances. All incompletes must meet three criteria:
Any student has the right to appeal a questioned grade to the course instructor in writing, if the student believes the instructor has miscalculated the grade, or has not given reasonable and timely assessment of the student's course assignments. The appeal process must conclude within six weeks of the start of the appeal. Grade changes submitted after the six-week deadline will not be processed.
A procedure has been established for resolving those occasions when a student actively disagrees with the grade received in a course.
To encourage students to diversify their enrollments, the University has established a pass/no credit elective option which can be exercised according to the following guidelines:
