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.
