GPA Calculators
Your GPA is a longterm indicator of your success as a student. As such, it is an important statistic reflecting your ability to consistently perform at some academic level.
Your GPA is a computation of the average of all your grades earned during the course of some specific time period. Usually, this period covers either one semester or your entire academic career at a particular level (i.e., highschool, college, gradschool, etc.).
Traditionally, GPAs are computed on a 4point scale. Using this method, letter grades are assigned a number of grade points according to the table below. Quality points for the course are then computed by multiplying the grade points by the number of credit hours. The GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Therefore, a GPA would fall into the range from 0.0 to 4.0.
