College students, use our new and improved GPA calculator to determine your semester and cumulative grade point averages. This tool will both calculate GPAs for every semester using the standard U.S. college school 4.0 GPA scale. Additionally, your average letter grade and average percentage grade are calculated for each semester; as well as your cumulative college career. As you calculate your GPA, you will see popular colleges recommended which accept applicants in your GPA range.

## GPA calculation

This calculator uses the (4.0) four point GPA scale outlined in the tables below in order to convert your letter grades to numerical points. Your semester's GPA is calculated as the sum all the points earned, divided by the total number of course credits taken.

### How is a GPA calculated?

For college, we have to consider the number of credit hours each class is worth (usually 3 or 4) and multiply each class' grade by credits. For example
(3.3 × 3) + (4.0 × 3) + (3.7 × 4) + (3.0 × 3) + (3.7 × 3) = 56.8
Now divide the results by total number of credits
56.8 ÷ 16 = 3.55 GPA
