During the first half of a semester/term, a student dropping a course shall be accorded a grade of W During the second half of a semester/term, the instructor, depending upon the student’s performance to date, will submit a grade of W or WF. A W grade is not computed into the grade point average; a WF is computed as a failing grade.

To compute the grade point average for a semester, multiply the grade points earned in each course by the number of credit hours which results in quality points. Divide the number of quality points by the number of credit hours carried. The grade point average is carried by two decimal points.
