Use our college GPA calculator to easily calculate your grade point average according to your letter grades and credit points.
Welcome to our College GPA Calculator. It lets you compute the grade point average (GPA) based on your course grades and credits. It takes users' grades and credit points for each course and calculates GPA based on the data provided. Also, it includes an additional feature, such as the ability to calculate the cumulative GPA. In short, it's the best tool for tracking the class exam performance and achieving goals.
GPA stands for "Grade Point Average". It is used to represent academic achievement in college or high school. In most colleges or institutions, GPA is calculated on a 4.0 scale. With a 4.0 being the highest possible GPA. Also, this scale assigns numerical values to letter grades and it's provided in the following table.
|Letter Grade||Percent Grade||4.0 Scale GPA|
Note: Our GPA calculator uses the above grading scale to show results. But always check the grading scale used by your institution and ensure that the calculator you are using is compatible with that scale.
To calculate GPA, we will use the GPA formula. That is given below.
c = Credits
g = Grade points
Here's an example:
Suppose a student received the following grades. Find the overall GPA of the college term or semester.
Firstly, convert the letter grade to grade points. For that, you can use the GPA scale table.
Now place all values in the GPA formula.
GPA = (3 × 3) + (5 × 3.67) + (4 × 4) / (3 + 5 + 4)
= 9 + 18.35 + 16 / 12
= 43.35 / 12
So, the student got an overall 3.61 GPA in the college term.
The process is as follows:
