Kirkwood Community College Credit Catalog 2017-2018

Computing Grade Point Average

Grade point average is computed by multiplying the number of semester credits for each Kirkwood and transfer course by the numerical value, or "grade points", of the grade given for that course. These values are then added together for the total grade points, which are then divided by the total semester credits for the GPA. The grade point average is not weighted.
