HOW TO FIGURE YOUR GPA (GRADE POINT AVERAGE)

  1. Determine whether the class is a credit or non-credit class. Any class beginning with a zero in the course number is non-credit. The last digit tells you how many hours the class is worth.
    Example: Elementary Algebra is MTH0953 - it is worth zero hours. College Algebra is MTH1113 - it is worth 3 hours.

  2. Each letter grade has been assigned a numerical value:
    A is worth 4 points
    B is worth 3 points
    C is worth 2 points
    D is worth 1 point
    F is worth 0 points
  3. Multiply each credit hour by the numerical value of the grade received in that class.
    Example:
(College Alg) MTH 1113 3 hrs X B(3) = 9
(Biology) BIO 1014 4 hrs X B(3) = 12
(Concepts of Phys Activity) HPR 1732 2 hrs X A(4) = 8
(Writing Skills) ENG 0963 0 hrs X 0 = 0
Total 9 hrs = 29 points
  1. Divide the results (29) by the total hours attempted (9).
