Calculate GPA

Quality Points for each course are calculated as follows:  (quality points representing letter grade) x (credit hour value of the class) = quality points earned

John Smith earns an A in a 3 credit hour course.  4.000 x 3 credit hours = 12.000 quality points

To calculate the semester GPA:
(sum of quality points for each class) / (sum of credit hours attempted) = semester GPA

To calculate the cumulative GPA:
(total quality points from all terms) / (total credit hours attempted from all terms) = cumulative GPA
