Calculating your cumulative GPA using the A-F scale

Follow these steps to compute your GPA on the A-F (4.0) grading scale.  To determine your overall (cumulative) undergraduate GPA, you must include courses from all institutions you attended at the undergrad level.  Do not include any courses that were graded "Pass/Fail." 

  1. Gather unofficial transcripts or grade reports from all institutions you have attended
  2. Use the template below to create your own chart for calculating your GPA.
  3. Total the number of credits you received for each letter grade and enter in the CREDIT HOURS column.
  4. Multiply the number of CREDIT HOURS by the associated NUMERIC VALUE for each letter.   Enter the result in the GRADE POINTS columns.
  5. Add the values in the CREDIT HOURS and GRADE POINTS columns to determine your TOTAL credit hours and TOTAL grade points.
  6. Divide TOTAL GRADE POINTS by TOTAL CREDIT HOURS.  The result is your cumulative GPA.
