How To Calculate Your GPA

Each letter grade is worth the following grade points: 

Letter Grade
Points Per Credit
A 4.0
A- 3.67
B 3.0
B- 2.67
C+ 2.33
C- 1.67
  1. Locate your grade on the grid above.
  2. Multiply the Points for that grade by the number of credits for the course.
  3. Do this for each course you took.
  4. Add all these products together.
  5. Divide this number by the total number of attempted credits taken.



Example A:


Total Credits Attempted: 16

Total Credits Earned: 16

Total Grade Points: 51.02

Divide 51.02/16 = 3.19

Semester GPA: 3.19


Example B:


Total Credits Attempted: 13

Total Credits Earned: 10

Total Grade Points: 30

Divide 30/13= 2.31

Semester GPA: 2.31

How To Calculate Your Cumulative Grade Point Average:

Divide your TOTAL grade points by TOTAL credits attempted.

Using the examples above: 50 grade points & 16 credits attempted + 30 grade points & 13 credits attempted = 80 grade points & 29 credits attempted

80 grade points / 29 credits attempted = 2.76 (cumulative grade point average)

Note: If a class is repeated, it always is the second grade that counts.
