GPA is an important element, especially when it comes to earning the scholarship, the admission process or the application letter. The admission panel will consider your GPA for scrutiny. An undergraduate student must attain a minimum GPA on all major courses to graduate. Most colleges have their own minimum passing criteria scale or some have more tough percentage requirements and ask for higher GPA.
How to calculate cumulative GPA for college?
To use this simple unweighted calculator, just enter your class or course name (optional), enter the credentials you have received in the course, and finally select a grade for the course/class you attended. Once you fill the required information into the online college calculator, the tool will compute the information and calculate the grade points. In this way, you can calculate grades for a number of courses at a time.
(Note: P/NP (Pass/No Pass) courses are not counted in the student’s GPA. Hence, the calculator will display no result.)
(grade * credits) / credit = GPA
