TERMS TO KNOW. Grade Point Average = the total quality points divided by the total number of credit hours. For example, two A’s and three B’s in 3-credit-hour courses results in a 3.4 GPA for that semester.
Your GPA is what it is, whatever you have earned. You don’t “ruin” it by getting a B. One B grade might raise your GPA, or might lower it, depending on what were your grades in other courses, in all other semesters or terms.

A 4.0 means an A or A+ in every class, with no exceptions. An A- is a 3.7 on this scale, and a single one will knock you down from a perfect GPA. Typically an A+ doesn’t count as a 4.3, so you can’t go above a 4.0.
A GPA is calculated by dividing the total amount of grade points by the total amount of classes attempted. Your GPA may range from 0.0 to a 4.0. For instance, if you received all F’s, your GPA would be 0.0, while straight A’s will earn a 4.0.
