To calculate your Accounting GPA, you need to add the total quality points
(the credit hrs x the value of the grade) and divide by total hours.
Don't forget that Acct 5710 & 5720 are 1.5 hr credits!
3 hr A, 1.5 hr B, 3 hr B+ =
(3hrs x 4 pts) + (1.5hrs x 3 pts) + (3hrs x 3.3 pts) =
12 + 4.5 + 9.9 = 26.4
26.4 total quality points ÷ 7.5 total hrs = 3.52
