Grading System

Marquette uses the grade point system to determine students' academic grade point average (GPA), academic censure and eligibility to graduate (see Graduation Requirements section of this bulletin.) Each grade (A through F) earned in a course carries a specified number of grade points. The grade points earned in any given course equal the grade point value of the grade multiplied by the total number of semester hours credited. Students' GPA is found by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours credited in those courses for which grade points have been assigned. Credits that are transferred from another university are not included when calculating the GPA. The official Marquette GPA of all students is calculated by the student information system and this GPA is not rounded up or down for any reason.
