# GPA calculation

To determine your GPA, you must first determine the grade that you have earned for your classes. Each grade has points assigned to it. At UW-La Crosse, letter grades are worth the following points:

• A = 4.00, AB = 3.50, B = 3.00, BC = 2.50, C = 2.00, D = 1.00, F = 0.00

To calculate the points that you will receive for a class. Multiply the number of credits attempted by the points assigned to the grade

• Example, an "A" in a 3 credit course would earn 12 points (3 credits × 4 points = 12 points)

### GPA Calculation

To calculate a semester grade point average for all classes:
Add the points earned from grades in all classes, then divide the point total by the number of credits attempted during the semester (Total Points ÷ Credits Attempted = GPA)

 Example semester Course Description Attempted Credits Grade Points ENG 110 College Writing 3 B (3.0) 9.0 MTH 145 Elementary Statistics 4 BC (2.50) 10.0 MUS 105 Music Appreciation 2 A (4.0) 8.0 HIS 102 Global Transition and Change 3 C (2.0) 6.0 HPR 105 Creating A Healthy, Active Lifestyle 3 AB (3.50) 10.5 Credits = 15 Points= 43.5

43.5 points ÷ 15 credits = 2.90 GPA
