  • How to use the Future GPA calculator


    The Future GPA Calculator 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.  

    In the top box input the following:


    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
    Include each P and S grade here as these grades do not effect your GPA.

    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.



    The next section asks for three final pieces of information:


    You need to type in:

    Current cumulative GPA
    Found at the very bottom of your last semester.

    Anticipated credits
    If you want to see how anticipated credits for the current semester impact your cumulative GPA input this semester’s anticipated number of credits (you can also add several future semesters together).

    Anticipated GPA (current semester)
    You can calculate your anticipated current semester’s GPA using our Current GPA Calculator.

    Finally, press TAB to see your  cumulative    anticipated GPA in the orange box at the bottom.

  • How to use the Current GPA calculator


    The Current GPA Calculator can be used to predict the GPA of the current semester. 

    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.

    Simply insert the number of credits for each letter grade you expect to receive (or have already received).  Be sure to double check for accuracy as you go - make sure that the final gpa in the calculator matches the cumulative gpa noted on your transcript after each semester.  You can also use this to predict future gpa's as you add more and more classes.

    When you are done, click outside the table in any empty cell in order to update the final GPA.  

    Use the example below.


    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
