How is my GPA calculated?

GPA Calculation

Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated using the grade points earned for courses taken and the number of credit hours of the courses taken. 

Grade points for a course are calculated by multiplying the grade value earned ("A" is 4.0, "B" is 3.0, "C" is 2.0, "D" is 1.0, and "F" is 0.0) by the credit hours for each course.

For example, for a 3 credit hour course, the grade points are 12 points for an "A", 9 points for a "B", 6 points for a "C", 3 points for a "D", and 0 points for an "F".

To calculate GPA, the sum of the grade points earned for all courses taken is divided by the total number of credit hours taken.

For example: if you take 4 classes, each worth 3 credit hours, your calculation for two "As" (24 grade points) and two "Cs" (12 grade points) would follow: 12 credit hours divided into 36 grade points, making your GPA 3.0 or “B” average.
