Step 1: Convert letter grades to a Points value
|A = 4 points
||B+ = 3.33 points
||C+ = 2.33 points
||D+ = 1.33 points
||F = 0 points
|A- = 3.67 points
||B = 3 points
||C = 2.0 points
||D = 1.0 points
||B- = 2.67 points
||C- = 1.67 points
||D- = .67 points
Step 2: Multiply Points Times Credits to get Semester Quality Points

Step 3: Calculate Overall/Career Quality Points
