Semester grades are calculated as follows: Final exams account for a portion of a student’s semester grade, depending on the department policy. Some courses (including 2nd semester AP courses) do not have final exams; these semester grades are calculated by the numerical average of the two quarter grades. The original semester grades remain on the transcript but the new grades replace the previous grades in the GPA.
