An online calculator is available for your use in estimating your GPA. Please note that this is only an estimate, this will not reflect your official GPA.

Disclaimer: The GPA generated by the online calculator may not accurately reflect your term GPA as it does not include important factors such as grades for repeated classes. Your official SFA term and cumulative GPA is included on your unofficial transcript after end of term processing is complete. Your unofficial transcript may be accessed through mySFA if you do not have holds.

Manual GPA Calculation

Disclaimer: The GPA generated by the equation given below may not accurately reflect your term GPA as it does not include important factors such as grades for repeated classes. Your official SFA term and cumulative GPA is included on your unofficial transcript after end of term processing is complete. Your unofficial transcript may be accessed through mySFA if you do not have holds.

  1. Write down each course the student is registered for and the number of hours each course is worth. Add the number of hours together. This is the total number of GPA hours.
  2. Write down what grade the student thinks they will receive next to each one.
  3. For each course, calculate the quality points by multiplying the number of hours for a course by the expected grade's numerical value:
    1. A = 4
    2. B = 3
    3. C = 2
    4. D = 1
    5. F = 0
  4. Add the number of quality points together. This is the total number of quality points.
  5. Divide the total number of quality points by the total number of GPA hours. This is your GPA.
