Grade Calculators
Students and advisors often need to make two general calculations regarding grades: What is the current GPA, and what will it take to get to a desired GPA?
GPA Calculation:
The GPA can be calculated manually by using a simple point system. This system is an excellent tool for checking transfer GPAs or for doublechecking major and cumulative GPAs that are in UAccess.
Target GPA Calculator:
The Target GPA Calculator determines how many units of A or B grades are needed to achieve a target GPA. To find out how many "Units Taken Towards GPA" and total "Total Grade Points" earned, visit UAccess and request an unofficial transcript.
If, for example, the goal is to achieve a 2.0 GPA there is a 6unit B deficit. This means that at least 6 units of B, and nothing lower than a C (C being a neutral grade for a 2.0), in order to reach the desired GPA. Similarly, a student with a 6unit A deficit to reach a 3.0 would need to earn 6 units of A and nothing lower than a B.
The A/B deficit can be manually calculated. The following is an example of a Target GPA of 2.0 GPA:
UA "Units Taken Towards GPA" x 2 =


(minus)  "Total Grade Points"


= B Deficit


/2 = A Deficit

The units of A are needed to reach a 3.0 GPA by multiplying quality hours by 3 instead of by 2.
