## HOW TO CALCULATE G.P.A.

### TO CALCULATE G.P.A. FOR ONE TERM:

- Multiply the point value of the letter grade by the number of credit hours. The result is the quality points earned.
- Total the credit hours for the term.
- Total the quality points for the term.
- Divide the total quality points by the total credit hours.
- The result is the G.P.A. for the term.

### TO CALCULATE CUMULATIVE G.P.A.:

- Calculate G.P.A. for each term.
- Total the credit hours from all terms.
- Total the quality points from all terms.
- Divide the total quality points for all terms by the total credit hours for all terms.
- The result is the cumulative G.P.A.

## EXAMPLE

### TERM 1:

3 credits - B-

3 credits - C

2 credits - A

3 credits - C-

4 credits - D+

### TERM 1 CALCULATION:

B- = 2.67 x 3 credit hours = 8.01 quality points

C = 2.00 x 3 credit hours = 6.00 quality points

A = 4.00 x 2 credit hours = 8.00 quality points

C- = 1.67 x 3 credit hours = 5.01 quality points

D+ = 1.33 x 4 credit hours = 5.32 quality points

Add the number of quality points for term 1:

8.01 + 6.00 + 8.00 + 5.01 + 5.32 = 32.34 quality points

Add the number of credit hours for term 1:

3 + 3 + 2 + 3 + 4 = 15 credit hours

### TERM 2:

4 credits - C+

5 credits - A-

3 credits - B-

4 credits - B

### TERM 2 CALCULATION:

C+ = 2.33 x 4 credit hours = 9.32 quality points

A- = 3.67 x 5 credit hours = 18.35 quality points

B- = 2.67 x 3 credit hours = 8.01 quality points

B = 3.00 x 4 credit hours = 12 quality points

Add the number of quality points for term 2:

9.32 + 18.35 + 8.01 + 12 = 47.68 quality points.

Add the number of credit hours for term 2:

4 + 5 + 3 + 4 = 16 credit hours.

Divide the total quality points by the total credit hours

47.68 / 16 = 2.98 G.P.A.

### CUMULATIVE G.P.A. CALCULATION:

Add the quality points for all terms:

32.34 (term 1) + 47.68 (term 2) = 80.02 quality points.

Add the credit hours for all terms:

15 (term 1) + 16 (term 2) = 31 credit hours.

Divide the total quality points for all terms by the total credit hours for all terms:

80.02 / 31 = 2.58 G.P.A.
