How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average (GPA)
Computing Your Grade Point Average (GPA)

Computing your GPA – THE STEPS

See table below for sample data.

Step 1: Find the grade point value for each course taken (some transcripts already take this step for you). Multiply the number of units/credits of a course by the value of each grade (see values below).

ENGL 110 3 units x B(3) = 9

Step 2: Add together the total grade points received for each course to determine grade point total for all colleges. (Amount from chart below = 49)

Step 3: Add together the units/credits Attempted. (Amount from chart below = 16)

Step 4: Finally, divide (÷) total grade points by total units/credits attempted. The result will be your grade point average.

Step 2 ÷ Step 3 = G.P.A.
Example: 49 ÷ 16 = G.P.A.
Course Units/Credits Attempted Grade Earned Units Completed Grade Points
Spanish 185 5 A (4) 5 20.0
Art 100 3 CR (0) 3
English 110 3 B (3) 3 9.0
Geology 100 4 C (2) 4 8.0
Math 160 4 B (3) 4 12.0
Totals: 16 19 49.0
Grade Point Value:

A = 4 grade points
B = 3 grade points
C = 2 grade points
D = 1 grade point
F = 0 grade points

The following grades are not part of the GPA computation:

CR = Credit – 0 grade points, no units attempted, but counts as completed
NC = No Credit – 0 grade points, no units attempted, no units completed
W = Withdrawal – 0 grade points, no units attempted, no units completed
I = Incomplete – 0 grade points, no units attempted
IP = In Progress – 0 grade points, no units attempted
NG = Non Graded – 0 grade points
RD = Report Delayed – 0 grade points, no units attempted
