The scholarship average is based on courses in which letter grades are earned (the total number of grade points divided by the number of units in letter-graded courses). Grade points are assigned as follows.

The grades of "CR," "NC," "AU" (audit), "I," "W," "WB," and "RP" (report in progress) receive no grade points and the units are not considered in computing grade point average. A plus or minus sign following a grade of "A," "B," "C," or "D" will affect the grade points allowed as indicated in the table. A grade of "A+" cannot exceed 4.0 grade points per California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Division 5, Chapter 1, SubChapter 2, Article 2, 40104.

Undergraduate and postbaccalaureate students must maintain a an SJSU Cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better (calculated by dividing grade points (GP) by units graded (UG)).
