 ## How to Calculate Your GPA

Your grade point average (GPA) is a weighted average of all your for-credit college work. This means a grade in a four-credit course will change your GPA more than the same grade in a three-credit course. Your GPA becomes harder to change when you have taken more courses. To calculate your estimated GPA, do the following:

For each course, multiply the course credit hours by the grade you receive to get the “quality points” for that course. Your grades have the following numerical equivalents: Each A is 4 points, each B is 3 points, each C is 2 points, each D is 1 point and each F is 0 points. Add up the quality points for each course.

For example, suppose you were taking the following courses:

ENC1101 3 x A(4) = 12
MAC2311 5 x C (2) = 10
PEM1171 2 x B (3) = 6
SPC1017 3 x D (1) = 3
TOTAL 13   = 31

Divide the total number of quality points by the total credit hours to get your GPA for the term. In this case, your GPA for the term would be 31/13, which equals 2.38.
