How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average
To determine the grade point average, first determine the total quality points earned by multiplying the number of grade points awarded for each course by the course’s assigned number of semester credit hours and adding the resulting quality points earned for each course. Then divide the total quality points earned in the term by the number of semester credit hours attempted (for letter grades) in the term.
|Course||Grade||Grade Points||X Credit Hours||Quality Points|
|Course A||C+||2.3||X 3.0||6.90|
|Course B||B-||2.7||X 3.0||8.10|
|Course C||B||3.0||X 4.0||12.00|
|Course D||C-||1.7||X 3.0||5.10|
|Course E||A -||3.7||X 1.0||3.70|
|Course F||F||0.0||X 1.0||0.00|
|Course G||A||4.0||X 3.0||12.00|
Total Quality Points Earned: 47.80
Total Graded Hours: 18.0
Term Grade Point Average: 47.80 ÷ 18.0 = 2.656
