Tulane University uses your cumulative quality points and cumulative quality hours to calculate your cumulative GPA.
Your cumulative GPA is obtained by dividing your cumulative quality points by your cumulative quality hours. Earned hours are used to determine if you have enough credits to graduate.
Quality Points per credit for specific letter grades are shown in the table below. For example a 3 credit course in which you earned a B would earn 9 quality points
Cumulative earned hours are the sum of all credits hours you have earned towards your degree, also including transfer credit and AP or IB credits.
Cumulative quality hours are the sum of credits you attempted with a regular grade type, including classes you failed but excluding classes with TR, S, U, P, and W grade type. It is available through TOUR and on your degree audit
Cumulative quality points are determined by multiplying the quality points for each class (determined by the table) multipled by the credit hours for the course.
