Calculate GPA

How to Calculate Your Semester GPA

  1. Assign your semester grades numerical values:

    A=4 B=3 C=2 D=1 F=0

    If you earn an A in ENGL 463 and C in BIOL 198, ENGL 463 gets 4 points and BIOL 198 gets 2 points.
  2. Now multiply that number times the number of credit hours assigned to the course. Do this for all your courses.

    ENGL 463: 4 X 3 hours = 12 grade points
    BIOL 198: 2 X 4 hours = 8 grade points
  3. Add your totals together.

    12 (ENGL 463) + 8 (BIOL 198) = 20 grade points
  4. Now divide that number by your semester credit hours. The result is your GPA for those courses.

    ENGL 463 is 3 hours and BIOL 198 is 4 hours so 20 grade points divided by 7 credit hours equals a 2.85 GPA for the semester if those are your two classes.
