What is G.P.A.?
G.P.A. stands for Grade Point Average and can be calculated as long as you know how many credits you have and the GPA points for those credits.
GPA = GPA Points / GPA Credits
GPA points are awarded based on the grade you get in a class. For example the scale would be:
- A = 4 points
- B = 3 points
- C = 2 points
- D = 1 point
- F = 0 points
GPA credits are the number of credits you have taken in courses in which you have received a grade.
Not included in GPA credits are things like classes you have taken as credit/no-credit, you withdrew from with or without a “W”, as well audited or incomplete classes. 1
