# How to Calculate Your GPA

Example:

 Course Units Attempted X Grade (numerical value) = Grade Points ENGL 101 4 x B (3) = 12 MATH 102 4 x A (4) = 16 SOC 100 3 x B (3) = 9 POLIT 100 3 x C (2) = 6 HIST 101 3 x D (1) = 3 KIN/F 105A (1) x W (0) = 0 KIN/F 108A 1 x F (0) = 0 Totals: 18 46

1. Grades are assigned a numerical value: A=4.0, B=3.0, C=2.0, D=1.0, F=0.0
Note: Units attempted that result in P/NP, CR/NC, W, IP, RD or I grades are not used to calculate the GPA.

2. Multiply the units attempted by the numerical value of the grade to get the grade points:

 Units Attempted Grade Grade Points Example: 4 x B (3) = 12

3. Total the units attempted and the grade points.

4. The GPA is determined by dividing the total grade points by the number of attempted units:

 Grade Points Units Attempted Grade Point Average Example: 46 ÷ 18 = 2.56

4.0 = A average

3.0 = B average

2.0 = C average

1.0 = D average

0.0 = F average

Converting Quarter Units to Semester Units

Quarter units are converted to semester units by multiplying the quarter units by 0.667:

 Example: 4 (quarter units) x 0.667 = 2.67 (semester units)

Converting Semester Units to Quarter Units

Semester units are converted to quarter units by multiplying the semester units by 1.5:

 Example: 4 (semester units) x 1.5 = 6 (quarter units)
