2  Audience: Anyone who has taken classes in school or at a University  Purpose: To inform students on the correct way to calculate grade point average for a semester › This is on a 4.0 scale

3  A list of the all the classes you have taken at a specific institution  The grades received for each of those classes (A,B,C,D, or E)  Writing utensil  Paper  Calculator (optional)

4  Write down each of your classes on a piece of paper and the grade you received for each of those classes

5 At this point, your paper should look similar to this Elementary CalculusB English CompositionA Introduction to PhysicsC Organic ChemistryE Intro to ISA

6  Alongside the letter grade, place the number value associated with your grade.  We will call this points earned. › On a 4.0 scale the points assigned to each grade is as follows A = 4 points B = 3 points C = 2 points D = 1 point E = No points

7  So far, your piece of paper should look something like this GradePoints Earned Elementary CalculusB3 English CompositionA4 Introduction to PhysicsC2 Organic ChemistryE0 Intro to ISA4

8  Write the credit hours for each of the courses next to points earned

9 GradePoints Earned Credit hours Elementary CalculusB33 English CompositionA43 Introduction to PhysicsC24 Organic ChemistryE03 Intro to ISA43

10  Multiply the points earned for a class by the credit hours for that class.  We will call this the grade points points earned xcredit hours = grade points

11 For example, the points earned for Elementary calculus is 3 and the course is 3 credit hours therefore the grade points received is 9. ClassGrade Points Earned Credit hours Grade Points Elementary Calculus B3x3 = 9 English Composition A4x3 = 12 Introduction to Physics C2x4 = 8 Organic Chemistry E0x3 = 0 Intro to IS A4x3 = 12

12  Add the grade point values for all classes together. We will call this the total grade points

13 Class Grade Points Earned Credit hours Grade Points Elementary Calculus B3x3 = 9 English Composition A4x3 = 12 Introduction to Physic C2x4 = 8 Organic Chemistry E0x3 = 0 Intro to IS A4x3 = 12 Totals Grade Points 41 The Total Grade Points in this example is 41

14  Add the credit hours together for all the classes  We will call this the total credit hours

15 Class Grade Points Earned Credit hours Grade Points Elementary Calculus B3x3 = 9 English Composition A4x3 = 12 Introduction to Physic C2x4 = 8 Organic Chemistry E0x3 = 0 Intro to IS A4x3 = 12 Totals credit hours16 -The total credit hours in this example is 16

16  Divide the total grade points by the total credit hours  Total grade points/ Total credit hours

17  Total Grade Points = 41  Total Credit Hours = 16  41/16 =

18  Many schools round down to the nearest hundredth  So the example GPA value of will round down to 2.56  This is the final step!
