GPA Calculator

The GPA Calculator is a helpful tool to calculate "what if" scenarios. Students can use the calculator to estimate GPA for the purpose of searching for scholarships and determining minimum grades needed to maintain eligibility for scholarships and other forms of financial aid.

Step 1: Get academic information from myBanner. You can find this information by signing into myBanner, and then clicking the Student Tab at the top. From there, click Student Records, and then View Academic Transcript. Once you're here, click Transcript Totals, and it will take you down to your overall Academic Transcript.

Step 2: Enter your current classes with estimated grades. (Make sure to indicate a repeat course and the previous grade if necessary.) This will allow you to calculate "what if" scenarios for your semester GPA.

Step 3: Enter your cumulative GPA Hours, Passed Hours, and Quality Points. These numbers will come directly from your Transcript Totals found in Step 1.

Step 4: Once you've entered all of the required information, click Calculate GPA.

GPA Hours   Passed Hours   Quality Points   Cumulative Grade Point Average

NOTE: The Cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) is determined by dividing the Total Quality Points by the Total Semester Hours Attempted. You can enter your actual Cumulative Totals to yield a Cumulative GPA accurate to three decimal points. You can also project your Grade Point Average and run what if scenarios by inserting your anticipated totals into the blanks.

  • Grades of "I or W" will not affect the grade point average.

  • The cumulative grade point average (GPA) is determined by dividing the total quality points earned by the total number of semester hours attempted.

  • A grade of "I" (Incomplete) must be removed by the completion of the work through the specific department. A student may appeal a grade to their department.

  • Incomplete grades will be recorded as an "F" if you do not finalize your class.
