All credit hours transferred to UMES are included in the Total Hours attempted in the first column of the above table when determining the category of academic performance.  The cumulative GPA is computed by using

  1. the number of credit hours attempted at UMES and corresponding grades earned, and
  2. credit hours attempted elsewhere within the University System of Maryland and   the corresponding grades earned, when the grades also transfer to UMES.  If the grades do not transfer, the hours are not used in computing the GPA.
