Follow the steps below to calculate your GPA:
- Convert the letter grade for each course to a Grade Point Value by referring to the Grading System chart above
The following notations are not included in the GPA calculation: I - Incomplete, W - Withdraw, AU - Audit, P - Pass, PL - Prior Learning, TC - Transfer Credit, Non-credit courses, courses graded on a Competency-Based Education scale.
- Calculate the total number of Grade Points for each course by multiplying the course's Grade Point Value by the number of course credits
- Calculate the sum of the attempted course credits for the term. Add up the total number of the Total Grade Points
- Finally, calculate the Grade Point Average by dividing the total number of grade points by the sum of the attempted credits
Example of a GPA calculation:
|Course||Grade||Grade Point Value||Course Credits||Total Grade Points|
|15 total credits||33 total grade points|
|33 (total grade points) / 15 (total credits) = 2.2 GPA|
The GPA is calculated in 2 different circumstances:
- Cumulative Program Grade Point Average (CPGPA): The grade point average for all courses a learner has completed that are part of the program in which he/she is registered.
- Term Program Grade Point Average (TPGPA): The grade point average for all the courses a learner has completed in a particular term that are part of the program in which he/she is registered.
Frequently Asked Questions
If a learner repeats a course, only the final grade which is higher will be counted towards a learner’s academic standing and GPA calculation.
