GPA

These calculators rely on information that you provide and are merely a tool meant for your personal use and is not offical  (GPA calculations may be diferrent than transcript due to rounding).

Cumulative GPA Calculator

This script is intended to help you calculate your semester/term GPA. An Adjusted GPA Calculator is also included at the bottom of this page, to compute GPAs when courses are repeated.

GPA operates on a 4-point system, where the number of grade points is divided by the number of hours attempted (less hours in which a grade of I, NR, CR, W, CR, PR, RF, RU, RN, RI, RP, X, Y, or AU is issued). Grade points are counted as follows:

Grade Scale
A=4  
B=3
C=2
D=1
       F-0  
       U=0  
       N=0  
 

Note: If you repeat a course you must use the Adjusted GPA (AGPA) Calculator at the bottom of the page to compute your GPA. See the AGPA instructions for directions.

Note: If you repeat a course include its original grade and credit hours information when using the Cumulative GPA Calculator, but don'tinclude additional grade information from when you repeated it. Use the AGPA Calculator below to adjust your GPA to remove the initial grade.

Note: NaN or not-a-number, is an error message indicating that a letter has been inserted in a number field.

Computing Your New Cumulative GPA

  1. Compute your Semester/Term GPA.
    • Enter your grade and credit hours for each course taken, (see note above).
    • Press Calculate to compute your Semester GPA.
    • Press OK to close Semester GPA window.
  2. Compute your New Cumulative GPA:
    • Enter your cumulative GPA prior to this semester and total number of graded credit hours earned prior to this semester.
    • Press Calculate to compute your Cumulative GPA.

Target GPA Calculator

This calculator will tell you what GPA you will need for your next semester, year, etc. to reach a GPA goal. You just need to know your current GPA and the number of credit hours you've already completed. Then choose a target GPA and a number of credit hours in which to attain that target!

Course Repeat: Adjusted GPA (AGPA) Calculator

The Adjusted GPA (AGPA) Calculator below, will allow you to compute the effect of retaking a course with the new grade replacing the original one. Before deciding to repeat a course, please review the University's Grade Adjustment/Course Repeat Policy.

Note: If you retake a course, include the original grade information in the Cumulative GPA Calculator above, but don't include additional grade information from when you repeated it. The AGPA Calculator adjusts your GPA to remove the initial grade. Note: The AGPA Calculator can be used for only one repeated course at a time. To compute your AGPA for multiple course (maximum of three), see Computing AGPA for Multiple Courses.

Computing Your Adjusted GPA

  1. Compute your Current GPA with the Cumulative GPA Calculator above. Include the original grade information for the repeated course, but don't include additional grade information from when you retook it.
  2. Compute your Adjusted GPA (AGPA) wth the Adjusted GPA (AGPA) Calculator.
    • Enter your Current GPA from the Cumulative GPA Calculator.
    • Enter your cumulative Current Credit Hours, (the hours used in the Cumulative GPA Calculator).
    • Enter your Repeated Course Credit Hours, (one repeated course only).
    • Enter the Original Course Grade and New Course Grade for the repeated course (one repeated course only).
    • Press Calculate to compute your AGPA.

Computing AGPA for Multiple Courses

  1. Follow the above instructions for Computing Your Adjusted GPA for your first repeated course.
  2. Record the AGPG for your first course.
  3. Compute the Adjusted GPA (AGPA) for the second or third repeated course wth the Adjusted GPA (AGPA) Calculator.
    • Enter the AGPG that you just computed in the Current GPA window.
    • Enter your cumulative Current Credit Hours. Your Current Credit Hours do not change from those used in step 1.
    • Enter your Repeated Course Credit Hours for the second or third course.
    • Enter the Original Course Grade and New Course Grade for the repeated course (one repeated course only).
    • Press Calculate to compute your AGPA for that repeated course.
    • Record the AGPG that you computed.
  4. If needed repeat step 3 to Compute the Adjusted GPA (AGPA) for the third repeated course.
