Semester GPA Calculator
EXAMPLEYour Grade Point Average (GPA) is a weighted average of all your course work. This means that a grade in a four-hour course will change your GPA more than the same grade in a three-hour course. It also means that your GPA gets harder to change when you have taken more courses. To calculate your estimated GPA, you would do the following:
For each course you multiply the course credit hours times the grade you receive to get the "grade points" for that course. Your grades have the following numerical equivalents; each A is 4, each B is 3, each C is 2, each D is 1, each F is 0 and each WF is 0. W and WP do not receive grade points and do not have an effect on the GPA. Add up the grade points for each course and divide the results by the total credit hours to get your semester's GPA (remember to exclude Ws and WPs from your total credit hours). For example, suppose you were taking the following courses:
|Course||Credit Hours||Letter Grade||Grade Points|
|1. ENC 1102||3||A||12|
|2. MAC 2311||5||C||10|
|3. PEM 1171||2||B||6|
|4. SPC 1600||3||D||3|
Your grade point total for the term (31) is divided by your total credit hours (13) which equals your GPA (2.38).
