Sophomores: 32–65 credits

Juniors: 66–99 credits

Seniors: 100+ credits

How It's Calculated

The grade point average is obtained by multiplying academic credits by grade point value for the grade assigned in each course and dividing the sum of the grade points by the total number of academic credits attempted. Note: Courses marked NG, W, P, NP, or I are not included in the calculation of the GPA.

 

Course Grade Credits Grade Points
Course I A- 3 3.67
Course 2 B+ 3 3.33
Course 3 B- 3 2.67

Multiply Credits by Grade Points

3 x 3.67 = 11.01

3 x 3.33 = 9.99

3 x 2.67 = 8.01

Add all Grade Point Totals

11.01 + 9.99 + 8.01 = 29.01

Add all credits

3 + 3 + 3 = 9

Divide Grade Point Total by Credit Total

29.01 / 9 = 3.22

GPA = 3.22
