# How Do I Calculate my GPA?

Grades are evaluated, and your GPA is calculated in terms of quality points. For each hour of a letter grade earned, a set amount of "points" is awarded.

To determine your GPA, use the on-line GPA Calculator or use this table to determine the points per grade:

 Grade Of Quality Points Grade Of Quality Points A 4.00 C 2.00 A- 3.67 C- 1.67 B+ 3.33 D+ 1.33 B 3.00 D 1.00 B- 2.67 D- 0.67 C+ 2.33 F 0.00

Notes: One third of a quality point is added for every hour in which a plus (+) is earned. One third of a quality point is subtracted for every hour in which a minus (-) grade is earned. Grades of A+, F+, or F- are not assigned.

The grade point avearage is determined by dividing the number of grade points by the number of hours of earned (either total or for the semester). Hours of credit/no credit, withdrawal and/or incompletes are not used in determining your grade point average. See example below.

 Example: Class Hours Grade Grade Points Introduction to Literature 3 C+ 6.99 Humanities I 3 B 9.00 Introduction to Psychology 3 A 12.00 Calculus I 4 B- 10.68 13 38.67

The Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the Grade Points by the Hours. In this example, the GPA is 2.97 (38.67 divided by 13).
