# Estimated GPA Calculator

### How to calculate Grade Point Average (Estimated GPA) using the GPA Calculator

Enter your graded credit hours for this semester and select the letter grade earned in each class for this semester. When you click the calculate button, your Estimated GPA will be displayed, based on your grade, honor points, and credit hours attempted.

### Formula to Calculate Grade Point Average (Estimated GPA)

First, calculate total honor points for each course by multiplying the credit hours for each course by the number of honor points (see below) appropriate for the grade you received in that course. Add the honor point totals for each course to find the sum of honor points for the current semester. Use the sum of honor points in the formula below.

Add the total number of credits you are taking this semester and use the Sum of Credit Hours in the formula below.

#### Following are Honor points per semester hour of credit:

• A+ = 4 grade points
• A = 4 grade points
• A- = 3.67 grade points
• B+ = 3.33 grade points
• B = 3 grade points
• B- = 2.67 grade points
• C+ = 2.33 grade points
• C = 2 grade points
• C- = 1.67 grade points
• D+ = 1.33 grade point
• D = 1 grade point
• D- = 0.67 grade point
• E = 0 grade points

Grade Point Average (Estimated GPA) = Sum of Honor Points (see above) for the Current Semester / Sum of Credit Hours Attempted for the Current Semester

### Example

Your Grade Point Average (Estimated GPA) is a weighted average of all your course work. This means that a grade in a four-hour course will change your estimated GPA more than the same grade in a three-hour course. It also means that your estimated GPA gets harder to change when you have taken more courses. To calculate your estimated GPA, you would do the following:

For example, suppose you were taking the following courses:

Course Credit Hours Letter Grade Honor Points Total Honor Points (Credit Hours x Honor Point for Letter Grade)
Course 1 3 A 4 12
Course 2 5 C 2 10
Course 3 2 B 3 6
Course 4 3 D 1 3
