GPA Calculator

Your grade point average, or GPA, is how UT Dallas numerically calculates academic performance on your transcript.

Course Name Number of Credits Letter Grade Grade Point
  Example Class   3   A   12
  Total Number of Credits Semester GPA Total Grade Points
 

Grade point averages are determined by multiplying the points for each grade by the number of credit hours.

For example, a 4.0, or A, multiplied by three credit hours equals 12 grade points.

A student’s cumulative GPA is determined by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours completed. Marks such as X, NC or CR are not included in a GPA.
