Completion of a course is defined as a receipt of a letter grade (A+ to F) as opposed to Withdrawal or Incomplete.

In order to determine a quality point ratio, each letter grade from a completed course is assigned a quality point value. The quality point value for each grade earned during a semester is multiplied by the number of semester hours assigned to that course. The sum of these points is the total number of quality points earned during the semester. It is divided by the number of semester hours completed to obtain the quality point ratio (QPR).

Classroom and Information

  • Classes are taught by faculty selected by CEA and approved by UNH.
  • Periodic homework assignments, projects, and final examinations will be administered.
  • Class participation is mandatory and monitored by each professor. You may access your grades and attendance on your MyCEA Account.
