 Knowing how to calculate your GPA is an invaluable tool.  It will allow you to determine what grades you need each semester in order to maintain or achieve your desired GPA.  See also: GPA Simulator
##### Hours Earned = All course work taken
• These hours include transfer work, courses taken Pass/Fail, and any courses numbered below 100 level taken at U of L prior to '98 Fall**(see note).
##### Hours Attempted with Grade (HAW) = Any class taken at U of L that was awarded a letter grade.
• Pass/Fail classes are not included in HAW. Only course in which a student earned grades of A, B, C, D, and F count in determining the number of hours attempted.
##### Quality Points (Qt. Pts.) = Points that are awarded for each letter grade 1
 A+ = 4.0 C = 2.0 A = 4.0 C- = 1.7 A- = 3.7 D+ = 1.3 B+ = 3.3 D = 1.0 B = 3.0 D- = 0.7 B- = 2.7 F =0.0 C+ = 2.3

##### To Calculate GPA = Divide Total Quality Points earned by hours attempted with grade:

GPA =  (Quality Points) divided by (HAW)

You can calculate your U of L cumulative GPA or semester GPA.

 Example: Grade Hrs. Earned Hrs. Attempted Quality Points ENGL 101 B 3 3 9 Math 111 C- 3 3 5.1 GEN 101 A 1 1 4 BIOL 102 A+ 3 3 12 SOC 202 B- 3 3 8.1 Total 13 13

(Quality Points = 38.2 ) / ( 13 HAW) = 2.93 GPA

1 Any course below 100 level (i.e., Math 080) taken in the 1998 Fall semester or any subsequent semester, will not be figured into your GPA.
