Manually Calculating Your GPA
The following calculation can be used to calculate your current semester GPA or your cumulative GPA.
To calculate you cumulative GPA, total the credit hours and grade points earned for all semesters.
For each course, multiply the grade points defined for the grade by the course credit hours to get the grade points earned.
|Grade ||Grade Points ||Credit Hours ||Grade Points Earned |
|A ||4.00 ||x ||4 hours ||= ||16.0 |
|B+ ||3.33 ||x ||3 hours ||= ||9.99 |
|C ||2.00 ||x ||5 hours ||= ||10.0 |
|Totals: ||12 ||35.99 |
Divide the total grade points earned by the total credit hours.
Example: 35.99 ÷ 12 = 2.99 GPA
We do not round up when calculating GPA or academic standings.
