GPA Calculator

The GPA calculator is for personal and informational purposes only. The calculations are unofficial. Your official GPA and academic record is available on LORIS. To check your final grades prior to them going official (e.g. mid-January for fall term, mid-June for winter term), please review your Unofficial Record of Coursework in LORIS.

Use the calculator to determine:

  • How the grades you have earned or attempted in a term will affect your cumulative GPA.
  • The grades you will need to meet your program's progression and graduation requirements.

Calculating Your GPA

  • Start from your existing GPA, which is available on LORIS.
  • Enter the number of credits you have attempted to date (this includes both earned credits and failed credits) and your cumulative GPA.
  • Enter current and anticipated courses and actual or anticipated grades. Use one line for each. You must include both failed and successful course attempts. Note: If you have failed a course and repeated it or are repeating it, use only the grade achieved in the second attempt in your calculation; do not include both the first attempt and the second attempt grades in your calculation. If you are registered in a general degree program and have exceeded 2.0 credits of repeated courses, this rule does not apply.

Calculating GPA Improvement if Retaking a Failed Course

If you wish to determine how much of an improvement you will see if you repeat a course that you have failed:

  • Complete the GPA calculation including the grade of F.
  • Do the calculation a second time, replacing the original grade of F with the grade you are working toward in your second attempt of the course. Hit "calculate" again.

Failed Courses

A grade of DR, XF or F is a failed course with a ‘zero’ GPA value.

When an X appears beside a final passing grade, the final examination was not written and the grade is based upon term work. Enter XF or the passing grade (e.g., for XD enter “D”) as appropriate.

If the course was dropped after academic deadline, the course is failed unless you have successfully petitioned for an exception.
