Understanding Your Transcript

For the purpose of computing your grade point average (GPA), grade points are assigned to each of the grades for each semester hour as follows:

GRADES

DEFINITION
VALUE

A

Excellent
4.00

B

Good
3.00

C

Average
2.00

D

Passing
1.00

E

Failure
0.00

The following grades have no grade point value, therefore, cannot be calculated into your GPA: "I," Incomplete; "P," Pass; "W," Withdrawal; "Y," Satisfactory.When calculating your GPA, you will need to know the following:

  • Semester GPA is based on semester net hours.Cumulative GPA is based on total net hours.ER (Earned Hours): This reflects the total hours earned ASU, including those earned with “P” or “Y” grades. This also includes credits transferred from another college or university.NT (Net Hours): This reflects only the hours earned at ASU in courses graded “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “E.”
  • HP (Honor Points): This reflects the total honor points for all semesters at ASU.

This is an example of what an unofficial transcript looks like:
