What is the formula for properly calculating your academic grade point average?

May 1st, 2015

A+ = 4.00
A = 4.00    
A- = 3.67    
B+ = 3.33    
B = 3.00    
B- = 2.67
C+ = 2.33
C = 2.00
C- = 1.67
D+ = 1.33
D = 1.00   
D- = 0.67
C+ = 2.33

To calculate G.P.A. for one term:

  1. Multiply the point value of the letter grade (see scale above) by the number of credit hours. The result is the grade points (quality points) earned.
  2. Total the credit hours for the term; total the quality points for the term.
  3. Divide the total quality points by the total credit hours

Here is also an example:

Note: For the honor classes the number of credits per certain letter can be higher.
