Quality Point System

A grade (quality) point system based on all hours attempted at Elizabeth City State University is used to calculate students' Academic Achievement. Grade symbols currently in use for all undergraduate courses are: A-Excellent, B-Good (above average), C-Average, D-Poor (passing but not satisfactory in some departments), F-Failing (course must be repeated to earn credit), I-Incomplete, IP-In Progress, IF-Incomplete Failing.

Quality points are computed by multiplying the number of semester hour credits by four for courses in which a grade of A is earned; by three for a grade of B; by two for a grade of C; and by one for a grade of D. Earned quality hours, and quality points are computed for grades of IA, IB, IC, and ID. No quality points are given for grades of "I," "F," "IF," "IP," "FA," "W," "WA," "WP," "WF," and "WD," and they are not counted in the hours attempted and not computed in the cumulative GPA except for the grade of "I," "F," "IF," and "FA." Elizabeth City State University does not recognize plus or minus.

The grade point average is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total number of G.P.A.hours.
