This Undergraduate Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculator is a tool developed by Student Financial Services (SFS) to assist students who are appealing their Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) status and who may need to submit an academic plan to demonstrate how they intend to raise their cumulative grade point average to meet the minimum GPA standard of the SAP policy. The grade point averages computed by this calculator do not replace the GPA calculated by the University nor does SFS promise that this calculator will calculate a GPA that is identical to the GPA calculated by the University.
If you have enrolled in a course whose grade is not included in the calculation of your GPA, you should exclude the credits earned in these courses when using the GPA calculator.
Please refer to the University’s Undergraduate Record and the academic policies for each school for information about how your GPA may be impacted by repeated courses. You may also use the table below as a guide; please note, however, that the table is not a substitute for the University’s official policy on the treatment of these courses in regard to GPAs.
Instructions for using the Undergraduate Term GPA Calculator
Disable your browser’s pop-up blocker and any other pop-up blocker (such as on your Google toolbar).
Pull up your unofficial transcript. To do this, log into your SIS account and under Academics, select “Transcript: View Unofficial” in the drop down menu. For Report Type, select Advising Transcript.
For each term, enter the number of credits that you will earn for each course in which you are enrolled in the Credits column with the exception of courses that are not included in the calculation of your GPA (see table above). You must include credits for courses in which you have earned an “F” letter grade in order to get an accurate result. Generally, you can find your earned credits on your Unofficial Transcript. The value in the first row posted next to Curr Credits on the Unofficial Transcript reflects the credits earned for a term.
Enter the Grade Letter that you have earned or expect to earn for each course in the Grade Letter column. The calculator accommodates grades with pluses and minuses (for example, B+). Generally, you can find your term GPA on your Unofficial Transcript. The value in the first row posted next to GPA reflects your term GPA.
Click on the Compute GPA button at the bottom of the calculator.
By clicking on Compute GPA, the calculator will populate Total Credits and calculate a Term GPA based upon the values that you entered. Two models of the Term GPA Calculator are provided to allow you to compare computed GPAs by term or if projecting your GPA, how your GPA may be impacted by a change in your expected grade letter.
