Your GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of Quality Points you earned by the number of GPA Hours you attempted in courses in which grades of A through F are assigned. Grades of I, P, S, U, and W do not have Quality Point values and are, therefore, not included in the GPA calculation.
The first two attempts of courses that have been repeated are excluded from the cumulative GPA. The third and any subsequent grades will be used in determining your GPA.
Each term, your semester and cumulative GPA will be indicated with your grades.

The GPA used to determine your continued eligibility for Lottery Scholarships is not the same as your RSCC GPA. This is because your Lottery GPA takes into account all of your attempts at a particular course whereas your RSCC GPA does not. Please be aware that "W" (Withdrawal) grades are counted as attempted courses for Lottery Scholarship purposes, and toward the maximum hours allowed by a Hope Lottery Scholarship but are not counted in the calculation of a student's Lottery GPA.
