How to Figure out your GPA

GPA = Total Grade Points / Total Number of Grades

To find total grade points:

  1. Add up total number of A's and multiply by 4
  2. Add up total number of B's and multiply by 3
  3. Add up total number of C's and multiply by 2
  4. Add up total number of D's and multiply by 1
  5. Add up total number of F's and multiply by 0
  6. Add all of these values together to find the Total Grade Points
  7. Divide the Total Grade Points by the total number of grades on your transcript.
  8. This should give you your GPA.


Grading Scale:

  • A = 93-100
  • B = 85-92
  • C = 75-84
  • D = 70-74
  • F = 0-69
