6.2 Grading System & GPA

Grades are determined by each instructor based upon an evaluation of all assigned and completed coursework. Academic and religion courses taken from BYU-Idaho count toward a student’s PathwayConnect GPA but do not affect their ultimate BYU-Idaho GPA (if they choose to matriculate into a BYU-Idaho degree program after PathwayConnect). Grades earned from local institutes of religion do not count toward a student’s GPA. GPA is calculated by taking total earned points divided by earned credits.
