Grade Point Average (GPA)

A student’s grade point average for admission, academic standing, and graduation is based on the quality points assigned to each letter grade. Non-letter grade designations (AU, DG, etc.) do not earn quality points and do not affect the grade point average. AdventHealth University uses the following GPA designations:

Trimester GPA

GPA for each term

AS/BS Degree GPA

AdventHealth University courses that meet specific degree requirements

AdventHealth University Residency GPA

All courses taken at AdventHealth University


Includes only coursework at AdventHealth University and does not include transfer credits

Admission GPA

May include credits earned both at AdventHealth University and at previously attended institutions (used for University and/or program admission).

Pass/No Pass Grade Designation

The Pass (P) grade receives academic credit but no quality points, while a No Pass (NP) grade receives neither credit nor quality points. The P or NP notation does not affect a student’s grade point average. For courses that receive a P or NP as a final grade, a P is designated as equivalent to a minimum grade of “C.”
