Credit System:
Purdue Global employs the quarter system, except for Concord Law which uses the semester system. Purdue Global courses taken while enrolled at Concord Law are expressed as semester credits. As of April 2017, one semester course credit at Concord Law represents 45 hours of law study. Prior to terms starting in April 2017, one semester course credit represented 40 hours of law study.
*Andover College was on the semester system prior to February 2010, at which point all active students’ credits were converted to quarter credits using standard conversion rates. Andover students who have not attended since that date have not been converted.
*Hagerstown Business College changed from the quarter system to the semester system in 1982. In 2002, the credit system was transitioned back to the quarter system. Credits may have been administratively added to adjust the weight of semester courses for students returning on the quarter system.

Grade Point Average (GPA):
A student’s GPA is calculated by dividing the sum of the earned quality points by the sum of the attempted credits for all courses receiving a grade used in calculating the GPA. Only work completed at Purdue University Global is used in GPA calculations.
The grade received on the last repeat of a course becomes the final grade and will replace all other grades for that course in GPA calculations. Prior to 2019 at Concord Law, all grades received were used in GPA calculations. When a student changes program of study, only the courses applicable to the new program are included in the GPA calculations for that program.
Withdrawal, prior learning, pass, and incomplete grades generally do not affect the GPA. Current grade definitions can be found in the University Catalog.
Disqualified Credits:
Concord Law students who enrolled in the Juris Doctor program prior to Concord being granted accreditation by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California must complete a minimum number of credits/hours of qualifying law study to be certified to take the California Bar Exam. Students who do not complete the minimum requirements may have their credits disqualified. Prior to terms starting April 2017, Juris Doctor students who received insufficient passing grades may have half of the course credits disqualified. Disqualified credits of law study are notated with a [DQ] in the grade.
