Calculating a GPA

To calculate a term, cumulative, major, or minor GPA, multiply the grade points by the number of credits for which the class is offered (i.e. 4.000 grade points X 3 credits = 12.000). Repeat this for each class. Add the total number of grade points. Add the total number of A–F credits completed. Divide total number of grade points by total number of A–F credits completed and this will be your GPA. Refer to the example below.
