General

  • A  semester  credit  hour  represents  one  clock hour of recitation or lecture, or two clock hours of  laboratory  per  week  for  one  semester  for most courses; some courses are calculated according to accreditation standards in the particular area.
  • Quality  points  are  the  assigned  points  of  a specific letter grade.  The total quality points of a course are calculated by multiplying the quality point value of the letter grade earned by the number of semester credit hours for the course.
  • The  cumulative  grade-point  average  is defined as the total number of quality points earned in all courses taken at Kentucky State University in which the student received a grade of  ”A,” “B,”  ”C,”  ”D,”  or “F” divided by the total number of semester credit hours in all courses taken at the University in which the student received a grade of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,”  or “F.”
    • If  a  course  is  repeated,  only  the  highest grade will be used in the computation of the cumulative grade-point average.
    • Unless specifically described in the course description  as  a  repeatable  course,  credit may be earned only once for courses that are repeated.
    • All   grades   earned   at   Kentucky   State University will remain on the student’s transcript and in the permanent record.
  • The current grade-point average is defined as the total number of quality points earned in all courses in which the student received a grade of  ”A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” during the last term (summer    session/semester)    of    enrollment divided by the total number of semester credit hours  in  all  courses  in  which  the  student received a grade of “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” during the last term (summer session/semester) of enrollment.
