GPA Calculator

The following grade point averages are calculated each academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer):
  • Institutional GPA - based on credits earned at a specific Regental university. Utilized to determine if degree requirements have been met and to determine Honors Designation at Graduation.
  • System Term GPA - based on credits earned at any of the six Regental universities within a given academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer). Utilized to determine minimum progression status.
  • Transfer GPA - based on credits earned and officially transferred from an accredited college or university outside the Regental system. When a letter grade that normally calculates into the grade point average exists for a non-academic course (e.g. credit earned via examination), if will be included in the transfer GPA.
  • Cumulative GPA - based on all credits earned by the student (transfer credit plus system credit). Utilized to determine minimum progression status and to determine if degree requirements have been met.

Grade Point Average

Any course in which a grade of A, B, C, D, or F is earned is used to calculate the grade point average. Each grade is worth a specific number of honor points: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0. The number of honor points earned for each class is computed by multiplying the points given for the letter grade by the hours of credit in the course. The total number of honor points earned is then divided by the total number of credit hours attempted (includes only those classes in which grades of A, B, C, D, F were earned). The result is the cumulative grade point average.

Example:

Grade Hours in Course Total Honor Points
A(4) 3 12
B(3) 3 9
C(2) 3 6
D(1) 3 3
F(0) 3 0
Total hours attempted = 15 Total honor point earned = 30
30/15 = 2.000 grade point average
