*How to Calculate Your Grade Point Average (GPA)*

Your grade point average (GPA) is calculated by dividing the total amount
of grade points earned by the total amount of credit hours attempted. Your
grade point average may range from 0.0 to a 4.0.

For example:

A = 4.00 grade points
A- = 3.70 grade points
B+ = 3.33 grade points
B = 3.00 grade points
B- = 2.70 grade points
C+ = 2.30 grade points
C = 2.00 grade points
C- = 1.70 grade points
D+ = 1.30 grade points
D = 1.00 grade points
D- = 0.70 grade points

WF/F=0 grade points

P/NP (Pass/No Pass) courses are not factored in the student's GPA
I (Incompletes) and W (Withdrawals) do not receive grade points and do not
have an effect on the GPA

Unfortunately there is no universal way to calculate grade point average
(GPA). Indeed, GPA calculation methods vary by country and by institution,
as some give extra points for honors classes and some weight score by
units. However, this article attempts to describe the basics, along with
two of the more common GPA calculation methods, so that you can at least
get a fair idea in your own case.

*Find a grading scale, usually a four pointer*. Most schools in the United
States use a four-point scale where A = 4, B = 3, C = 2, D = 1, and F = 0.
If you’re unsure what your school uses, try asking your or an
administrator. In some places, for example, an A+ is worth more than a
regular A, in which case every point in the gradebook counts.

*Collect the most recent grades you can by asking your teacher or an office
administrator*. You might also be able to figure out what grades you've
received by going back over your marked projects, assignments, tests, etc.
