A grade of WIP in My Marylhurst stands for "work in progress." WIP displays as a placeholder until the instructor submits a grade.

Calculating Grade Point Average (GPA)
GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points by the total GPA-bearing credit hours. (Pass/No pass grades are not GPA-bearing.)
Quality points are calculated by multiplying the grade points for each grade earned by the number of credit hours.
A (4.00) x 3 credits = 12.00 quality points
B+ (3.33) x 1 credit = 3.33 quality points
Overall GPA is found by adding up the total quality points and dividing by the total number of GPA-bearing credits.
Total quality points = 12.00 + 3.33 = 15.33
Total credits = 3+1 = 4
GPA = 15.33 / 4 = 3.83
