Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation
The cumulative grade point average (GPA) at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is calculated on the basis of courses taken at the University and excludes transferred grades.  Coursework transferred from the University of Texas at Brownsville/Texas Southmost College for students enrolled at UTRGV prior to the Fall 2017 will be included in the calculation of the Institutional GPA.  The grade point average (GPA) is computed by dividing the total grade points earned by the total hours attempted. The Cumulative Grade Point Average is calculated using all UTRGV, UTB/TSC, and UTPA coursework (excluding repeated courses) attempted. The current semester grade point average is calculated using only coursework attempted within a specific semester. Institutional GPA is used to determine academic standing.

UTRGV uses a 4.0 system.  The following grades are used to designate achievement in coursework. Their corresponding grade values and points are indicated.
