Calculating your grade point average (GPA) is fairly simple. First, you must calculate your quality points. Each grade you receive is worth a number of points per credit hour as follows:
A - 4 points
B - 3 points
C - 2 points
D - 1 points
F - 0 points
If you take a 4 credit-hour course, and make an A, you have earned 16 quality points. If you earn a B, you have 12 quality points. Of course, if you earn an F, 0 times any number is.....zero.
Determine the number of quality points for each course, then add up the total quality points you have earned.
Next, simply divide the total quality points you have earned, by the total number of hours of credit for which you have received a grade.
Here is an example:
A student earned the following grades for the indicated number of hours:
|Credit Hours||Quality Points||
Total quality points = 36
Total number of credit hours for which a grade has been earned = 14
GPA = 36 divided by 14 = 2.57
|4||4 x 4 = 16|
|A||2||4 x 2 = 8|
|C||3||2 x 3 = 6|
|F||3||0 x 3 = 0|
|B||2||3 x 2 = 6|
There are other examples but, for the most part, if you follow the above example,
you can come up with your own GPA.
If you have both quarter work and semester work, it is not a simple matter of adding the two GPAs together and dividing by two. To get an accurate GPA, you either have to convert the quarter work to semesters or the semester work to quarters. A semester hour is about 1.5 quarter hours. We suggest you don't try this at home.
