GRADE POINT AVERAGE(S)
The grade point average (GPA) is a measure of academic scholarship and performance. The grade point average is computed by multiplying the number of units earned by the quality-point value of the grade assigned. The total quality points are then divided by the number of units attempted, subject to application of the Course Repeat Policy described in this catalog. Note that there are separate policies for undergraduate students and for graduate/postbaccalaureate students.
A student´s overall GPA is based on the record of all baccalaureate-level and/or postbaccalaureate-level courses attempted by that student. A student´s institutional (or CSUSM) GPA is based on the record of all baccalaureate-level and/or postbaccalaureate-level courses attempted by that student at CSU San Marcos. Some degree programs may require students to achieve a minimum grade point average in courses applied toward major requirements, or a minimum grade in each of these courses.

Repeating a course does not expunge the earlier attempt from the student´s record, but it may improve the student´s grade point average (GPA). The following policy, applicable only to courses taken at CSU San Marcos, will be followed when allowing undergraduate students to repeat courses:
