How is my GPA calculated?

GPA Calculation

GPA stands for grade point average. Letter grades are given the following point values:

A — 4 B — 3 C — 2 D — 1 F — 0

Each class has a specific unit value. Multiply the letter grade value by the attempted unit value equals the grade points. Then divide the attempted unit total into the grade points to determine the GPA.

Example:

 

Units

Grade

Points

3 units of

A = 3 x 4

= 12

3 units of

B = 3 x 3

= 9

3 units of

C = 3 x 2

= 6

3 units of

D = 3 x l

= 3

3 units of

F = 3 x 0

= 0

 

To figure your grade point average, divide your total number of grade points by your total number of units attempted. In the above example, the grade point average is 2.0 or a letter grade of "C."
