  Calculating your Grade Point Average (GPA)

Manual GPA Calculation

  1. For each class, multiply the number of credits by the point value assigned (A=4, B=3, etc.).
  2. Add the points of all classes together.
  3. Divide by the total number of credits.


  • "A" in 3-credit class: 3 credits x 4 points = 12 grade points
  • "B" in 3-credit class: 3 credits x 3 points = 9 grade points
  • "A" in 4-credit class: 4 credits x 4 points = 16 grade points
  • Sum of 12 + 9 + 16 = 37 total grade points
  • Grade Point Average is dividend of 37 divided by 10 credits: 3.7 GPA.
