You must request your free transcript(s) in writing using the paper transcript request form. There are no “rush” options available for free paper transcripts. Processing and delivery via USPS may take up to two weeks. If you attended prior to fall 2004, you did not pay the fee and are not entitled to free transcripts.

FINAL GRADES

It is the policy of Sul Ross State University not to mail grades to students. Grades are available to students online. As faculty post their grades to the university computer system, they are displayed on each student’s record via Banner Self Service. Students may print a grade report and/or an unofficial transcript from Banner Self Service. Mid-term grades are reported for undergraduate students and are for progress reporting purposes only. Mid-term grades are not recorded on the student’s permanent record. See Grading Polices for more information on final grades and other grading policies.

CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE

The cumulative grade point average shown on a grade report, SRSU transcript and Banner web screens reflects work done at SRSU and any transfer credit a student has earned. University policy requires for graduation honors, athletic eligibility and satisfactory academic progress, the cumulative grade point average include all work done from any college or university a student has attended.

GRADE POINT AVERAGE TERMINOLOGY

  • Credit Hours – the hours assigned to a course, this number is listed in both the schedule of classes and the catalog and is usually 1 to 6 hours.
  • Quality Points – number of credit hours for a course times the grade value.
  • A = 4 points
  • B = 3 points
  • C = 2 points
  • D = 1 point
  • F = 0 points
  • Attempted Hours – all credit hours attempted for which you earn a grade, including I, CR, NG, PR, and W; note: WF is the same grade as an F and counts in attempted hours.
  • Earned Hours – credit hours that a student passed with a grade of D or higher.
  • GPA Hours – credit hours for which you earn a grade, excluding I, CR, NG, PR, and W
  • Repeat – when a course in which a student received a substandard grade is repeated, beyond the redlining of a course limit, all non-redline attempts of the course are counted in the GPA, regardless of the grade earned in the course.

HOW TO CALCULATE SEMESTER GRADE POINT AVERAGE

  1. For standard GPA calculation, multiply the grade value of the course by the semester hours for that course. The product of this multiplication will be the quality points.
  2. Divide the semester quality points by the semester GPA hours.

HOW TO CALCULATE CUMULATIVE GRADE POINT AVERAGE

Standard Cumulative GPA Calculation

  1. Total all the hours attempted from all the schools you have ever attended.
  2. Multiply the grade value of the course by the semester hours for that course from all the schools you have ever attended. The product of this multiplication will be the cumulative quality points.
  3. Divide the cumulative quality points by the cumulative GPA hours.

Repeated Courses & GPA Calculation If you repeat a course, SRSU policy is to use the grade from the last time the course was taken, provided you did not drop the course with a grade of W.

  1. Subtract the number of hours you are repeating (see definition above) from the total GPA hours for all semesters.
  2. Subtract the quality points you earned (if any) for the courses you are repeating from the total number of quality points earned for all semesters.
  3. Divide the new total quality points by the new total GPA hours for the corrected GPA.

Converting Semester Hours to Quarter Hours

  1. Multiply the total number of GPA hours by 1.5.
  2. Multiply the total number of quality points by 1.5
  3. Follow the above step-by-step directions.

Converting Quarter Hours to Semester Hours

  1. Multiply the total number of GPA hours by .667
  2. Multiply the total number of quality points by .667
  3. Follow the above step-by-step directions.

RAISING A GRADE POINT AVERAGE

The quickest way to raise a grade point average is to repeat courses that were failed. Consider the following: Question: How long will it take to bring my GPA up to a 2.0? Solution: If the present GPA is G and the number of attempted hours is N and if the additional hours will be with a GPA of P, then use this mathematical formula: [(2.00 – G) / (P – 2.00)] x N = the number of additional hours required to reach a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 Example: Suppose your present GPA is 1.22 and you have 32 semester GPA hours. How many additional semester hours must be taken with a grade of B to bring your GPA up to a 2.00? Solution: G = 1.22 N = 32 P = 3.00 (B)

[(2.00 -1.22) / (3.00 -2.00)] x 32 =

(0.78 / 1.00) x 32 =

= 24.96

So, you would need to complete 25 semester hours with a grade of B in each class. If you want to do it faster, look at what is needed for a grade of A in each course. Solution: G = 1.22 N = 32 P = 4.00 (A)

[(2.00 – 1.22) / (4.00 – 2.00)] x 32 =

(0.78/2.00) x 32 =

= 12.48

A total of 13 semester hours with an A in each class would be needed to get the GPA up to a 2.0. The quickest way to raise the grade point average is to repeat a course that was failed.
