Calculating Grade Point Average (GPA)

Click here to see what grade you need to make to pull up your GPA

Take the number of credit hours assigned to each registered class and multiply them by the value of the grade earned (A = 4pts, B = 3pts, C = 2pts,

D = 1 pt, F, W, WP, WF = 0 pts). Then calculate the number of cumulative credit hours attempted and divide that by the number of cumulative credit hours completed.

Example 1:

Student A is registered for 12 credit hours and passed all three classes.

ABC 222

44 total points divided by 12 semester credit hours equals a 3.6 Semester Grade Point Average.

Student A attempted 12 credit hours and completed 12 credit hours giving him a 100% completion rate for that semester.

Example 2:

Student B is registered for 16 credit hours and passes three out of the four classes.
