# GPA Calculator

CURRENT GPA CALCULATOR

The Current GPA Calculator can be used to predict the GPA of the current semester.Simply insert the number of credits for each letter grade you expect to receive.
Remember: P’s, NC’s, S’s, U’s, and W’s are not factored into the GPA. I’s, and NR’s do not factor into a GPA either, but will once the grade is changed by the instructor (for an incomplete) or the system changes the grade to I/F or N/F, which will factor into the GPA as an F.

The calculator from the Advising Center’s website computes the math automatically. Just fill in the number of credits for each grade and press TAB.

EXAMPLE

CHE 131  (4 credits)   Anticipated Grade: A
MAT 125   (3 credits) Anticipated Grade: C
PHI 103   (3 credits) Anticipated Grade: B+
THR 105   (3 credits) Anticipated Grade: B-
POL 102   (3 credits) Anticipated Grade: C

 INSTRUCTIONS A B C Step 1: Enter in Column A the # of credits that you earned with each grade, then multiply Column A by the grade's numerical equivalent in Column B. Enter results in Column C. Total Credits Number Equiv. Quality Points per Grade A 4 4.00 16 A- 0 3.67 0 B+ 3 3.33 9.99 B 0 3.00 0 B- 3 2.67 8.01 C+ 0 2.33 0 C 6 2.00 12 C- 0 1.67 0 D+ 0 1.33 0 D 0 1.00 0 F 0 0.00 0 STEP 2: Add Column A to get total credits of letter grades and Column C to get total quality points. 16 46 STEP 3: Divide Column C by Column A, The answer is you G.P.A for the grades entered on this page. 2.88

FUTURE GPA CALCULATOR

The Future GPA Calculator is more complicated and needs extra attention.
It can be used to predict how a future semester(s) GPA can affect your cumulative GPA.
Use a copy of your transcript in order to plug in the correct numbers.

The top box will direct you to input the following:

 Enter TOTAL earned credits. Enter repeated credits NOT earned. Enter TOTAL credits of F, I/F, and N/F grades. Enter TOTAL credits of P and S grades. Enter TOTAL transfer and test (AP, CLEP, CPE) credits.

TOTAL earned credits
This number is listed at the bottom of the last semester’s data as “Cum Units Earned:”

Repeated credits NOT earned
This category is only relevant if you have repeated a class and have received a grade above an F in each case.
If one of the grades is an F, P, or S, this category will not apply.

The purpose of this category is to ensure that credits for the same class count only once. For instance,if you repeat a class
or its equivalent and receive a D the first time and an A the second time, you earn credit only once.
The transcript would indicate under the first time you took it:

“Repeated     : In GPA, No Credit Earned”

Some courses are “repeatable” for credit, for example internships and TA credits; these would also not be counted here.

TOTAL credits of F, I/F, and N/F grades
Each F, I/F and N/F must be accounted for here.
An I/F or N/F grade reflect that the grade adjustment period has expired and are calculated as an F.

TOTAL credits of P and S grades

TOTAL transfer and test (AP, CLEP, CPE) credits
These credits are listed at the beginning of your transcript prior to the data relating to the first semester at Stony Brook.
Add the total number of credits.

Press TAB and the total credits that will be counted in your GPA will be displayed.
