Academic Advising, Standards & Evaluations

This student's GPA is 2.571.

HERE'S HOW WE CALCULATED IT!

Each grade has a "quality point value": for example, A is 4.0, A- is 3.7, B+ is 3.3, B is 3.0.

Now that we've grouped together all the grades (As together, Bs together, etc.), we are ready for the next step: figuring out the total number of quality points earned. We do this by multiplying the total credits earned for each grade by that grade's quality point value.

Calculation of Grade Point Average

We then take the sum of quality points earned and divide it by the total number of credits taken by the student.

Divide 123.4 (sum of quality points) by 48 (sum of credits indexed)

123.4 ÷ 48 = 2.570833

WE'RE DONE! This student's GPA is 2.571 (rounded off)
