Calculating Grade Point Average

To figure your GPA, do the following:

  1. For each course, multiply the credit hours of the course by the points for your grade (A=4, etc.)
  2. Add the products.
  3. Divide the sum by the total number of hours taken that semester.

A=4 points
B=3 points
C=2 points
D=1 point
F=0 points

FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE:
