How is the transfer GPA calculated?

All courses that are transferrable are included in the calculation for undergraduate applicants. For most graduate programs, we use every course, transferrable or not, to calculate the GPA.

To calculate a grade point average, convert grades to quality points. Multiply the letter grades' values by the number of credit hours attempted in each course. Letter grades have the following values:

  • A = 4
  • B = 3
  • C = 2
  • D = 1
  • F = 0

*I, W, S, U, V, K, and NR are not included in a GPA*

For example, a B in a 3-hour course equals 9 quality points (3x3=9); a B in a 1-hour course equals 3 quality points (3x1=3). Add all the quality points. Add all the hours attempted (except classes with W). Divide total quality points by total hours attempted.  The quotient, truncated to 2 decimal places, is the GPA.
