The weighted numeric grade-point average shall be calculated based on all numeric grades earned in grade levels nine (9) through 12, including grades for all college-level courses taken while dually enrolled at an accredited postsecondary institution. Grades earned for qualifying high school courses taken shall be included on the transcript and factored into the weighted numeric grade-point average for classranking purposes and HOPE/Zell Miller eligibility.
