Quality Point System

Each letter grade translates into a numerical equivalent as cited below. The quality point average (QPA) is obtained by dividing the total number of quality points by the number of credits attempted at Pace, including a grade of "F", but not grades of "W," "I-R," "K" or "P." A QPA of 2.00 is necessary for graduation.
