Alabama A&M GPA

Calculating Your GPA

​Grading System

AAMU uses a letter system of grading which follows: A-exceptional scholarship; B-distinctively above average; C-average quality; D-barely passing; F-failure; I-incomplete; IP-in progress; W-withdrew. The grade of “P” is used to indicate satisfactory completion of graduate writing and history departmental seminars.

The grade “X” will be assigned for auditing a course; however, no credit will be allowed. Credit for any course in which a student has received a grade of “F” can be obtained only by repeating the course and earning a passing grade.

Grade Point Average

AAMU’s grading system is based on a 4.00 point scale; quality points are assigned as follows: A = 4; B = 3; C = 2; D = 1; F = 0.

Grades of I, P, IP, W and X do not carry quality points, and like grades earned at another institution, do not impact a student’s grade point average.

Example of Calculation of Grade Point Averages
Grade Quality Points (Times) Hours Attempted (Equals) Grade Points Grade Point Average
A 4 x 3 = 12
B 3 x 4 = 12
C 2 x 3 = 6
D 1 x 2 = 2
F 0 x 3 = 0
W 0 x 0 = 0
TOTAL 15 32 2.13

Therefore, to be fully accepted into Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University, one must have a Composite Predictive Index (CPI) score of 18 or higher. The CPI score is a combination of the high school grade point average (GPA) and ACT/SAT scores. The GPA however, cannot be lower than a 2.0.
