System of Grading
Each student receives a grade in his/her courses at the middle and at the close of the semester. The mid-semester grades, designed to give the student an indication of his/her progress, do not appear on the student's transcript.
The system of grades is as follows:
Quality points, the numerical equivalent of the letter grade, are used to determine the student's rank in class, academic honors, and academic warning, probation, or suspension. By way of example, a student receiving an A, B. C, D, or F in a three-credit semester course earns 12, 9, 6, 3, or 0 quality points respectively. The number of earned quality points divided by the number of semester credits attempted (excluding "Pass" credits and "W" grades) establishes the quality point average (GPA) of a student.
A quality (or grade) point average of 2.0 shall be required for graduation from Hope College
