Calculate your GPA

CalculatorWant to know how to calculate your GPA? You'll need to know the grade and credit hours for each class you've taken. Then:

  • Multiply the number of grade points earned (A=4, A-=3.7, B+=3.3, B=3, B-=2.7, C+=2.3, C=2, C-=1.7, D+=1.3, D=1, D-=.07, F=0) by the number of credit hours for the course.
  • Add all GPA credit hours together.
  • Add all grade points together.
  • Divide the total grade points by the total number of GPA credit hours.
For example:

Total Credit Hours Attempted: 12
Total Grade Points: 27

To calculate your cumulative GPA, total your grade points for all semesters, and total all the credit hours you've attempted, then divide.
