Cumulative, Semester and Summer Grade Point Averages. The cumulative grade point average is the total number of grade points earned in the law school divided by the total number of graded credit hours taken in the law school. The semester or summer grade point average is the total number of grade points earned in a semester or summer divided by the total number of graded credit hours taken in the same semester or summer. Cumulative, semester, and summer grade point averages are computed after the end of each semester or summer in which the student has taken courses in the law school. Semester and cumulative grade point averages are recorded to the third decimal without rounding. A grade average of 2.5327, for example, is recorded as 2.532.
