# How can I calculate my GPA?

Grades and equivalents included in calculation of averages: A+ 4.33 B+ 3.33 C+ 2.33 D+ 1.33
A 4.00 Excellent B 3.00 Good C 2.00 Fair D 1.00 Passing A- 3.67 B- 2.67 C- 1.67 D- .67
E 0.00 Failing EW 0.00 Withdrew Failing (discontinued Fall 1994)

Symbols not included in calculation of averages:

S Satisfactory completion of a descriptively graded course-- instructor's comments attached (discontinued Fall 1994)
W Withdrew without credit or aecadmic penalty AU Successful audit U Failure of a descriptively graded course--instructor's comments attached (discontinued Fall 1994)
R Grade deferred F Failure on an "extra" semester course or Winter Study Project H Honors on a Winter Study Project (begun 1995) X If X precedes letter grade, credit forfeited for failure to complete second half of year-long P Pass on an "extra" semester course or Winter Study Project course
PP Perfunctory pass on a Winter Study Project
Z Grade not yet reported by instructor

HOW TO COMPUTE A GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)

1. Total the "equivalents" from the list above for each grade received.
(4.33 for each A+, 2.00 for each C, 0.00 for each E, etc.)

2. Divide this total by the number of grades or equivalents included and round to 2 decimal places.

Fall Semester grades A, B+, B-, C+ 4.00+3.33+2.67+2.33 = 12.33 Fall GPA = 12.33/4 = 3.08

Spring Semester grades B-, C+, C, D-, E 2.67+2.33+2.00+0.67+0.00 = 7.67 Spring GPA = 7.67/5 = 1.53

Cumulative GPA 12.33+7.67 = 20.00/9 or 2.22

Without knowing your grades for each class, your school's grading scale & how many credit hours each class is worth, there is no way for you to tell. But by using a generic grading scale, & assuming all classes are worth exactly the same credit hours (3) then you can make a guess.

A = 4 A- = 3.75 B+ = 3.5 B = 3.25 B- = 3 C+ = 2.75 C = 2.25 C- = 2 D+ = 1.75 D = 1.5 D- = 1 F = 0

Multiple your grade point score (above) by the number of credit hours (assume 3 each class). Then add them all up & divide that number / 24 (because 8, assuming you have 8 total classes, times 3, credit hours, equals 24).

That being said, usually core classes such as Math, English, and Science, or if you're taking any honors/AP's, are usually worth more credits & are worth more to your grade. Classes like Art & PE are worth fewer credit hours & worth less towards your grade. Also, your report card should have your GPA on it. Well, at least my school does that, haha.

And, here's a generator to do the math (: http://funadvice.com/r/bidg74p8p0m
