Calculate Your GPA

GPA Calculator
If you know your Grade Point Average (GPA) and total Semester Hours so far, you can project your final GPA by using our GPA Calculator. This is a Google Docs spreadsheet that you can access as follows:

  • Log in to your PC Gmail account if you aren’t already logged in.
  • Click on this link: GPA Calculator
  • Click on the Use this template button at the top of the page.

Method #2:

  • Log in to your PC Gmail account if you aren’t already logged in.
  • Go to docs.google.com/templates
  • Click on the Presbyterian College Templates tab.
  • Find GPA Calculator and click its Use this template button.

You can also use it to calculate your GPA as below, by using zero GPA and Semester Hours as the starting point.
Hand Calculation
You can calculate your major or minor Grade Point Average (GPA) by hand as follows:

  • On your Major or Minor Form, enter all grades received, and their numerical values.
    • A = 4.0
    • A- = 3.7
    • B+ = 3.3
    • B = 3.0
    • B- = 2.7
    • C+ = 2.3
    • C = 2.0
    • C- = 1.7
    • D+ = 1.3
    • D = 1.0
    • F = 0.0
    • Multiply each grade by the number of semester hours (SH) to get the Quality Points (QP) for the course.
    • Calculate the total Semester Hours for all courses.
    • Calculate the total Quality Points for all courses.
    • Divide the total Quality Points by the total Semester Hours to get the GPA.

For the overall GPA, proceed similarly, but include all courses, not just major or minor courses.

Notes:

  • Do not include classes with grades of TR (transfer credit), AP (Advanced Placement credit), CR, CLEP, etc.
  • Honors = A (do count)
  • Pass/Fail = S (don’t count)
  • Don’t count grade of P also.
