GPA Calculator for Application

A GPA worksheet must be submitted in order for your application to be considered complete; you may print out the calculated results of this page as the worksheet.

Exception: a worksheet is not required if you attended non-U.S. institutions, or your college did not assign letter grades (e.g., S/U only, or narrative reviews used).

Applicants who have attended U.S. institutions should list all courses taken for a letter grade after the first two years of college. Please do not depart from this formula, as it is determined by the Graduate Division. Your GPA information will be verified; if it is found to be inaccurate, it could jeopardize your admission to the University.

If you have a graduate degree or have taken graduate courses after completing a B.A., please use this worksheet a second time and calculate the GPA for these courses separately.

Please do not include post-B.A. courses on your B.A. worksheet. If you have a combination of semester and quarter units, please convert quarter units into semester units by using the following formula: quarter units x 2/3 = semester units (e.g., 4 quarter units = 2.67 semester units). If all your units are of one type, just enter those units as is.

Use the following grade point per unit system:

A+ or A = 4.0 A- = 3.7 B+ = 3.3 B = 3.0 B- = 2.7 C+ = 2.3
C = 2.0 C- = 1.7 D+ = 1.3 D = 1.0 D- = 0.7 F = 0.0

Do not enter number, P/NP, or S/U grades; invalid data will result in zero grade points for that line, but you will have an opportunity to correct this.

Name Degree
Major Date Completed

For each row fill in the course, units and grade; the school name is only needed on the first row unless there is a change. The "tab" key should allow you to easily move from field to field; after you've entered your grades, click on the "Calc GPA" button at the bottom of the page to find your GPA. (To check your browser's compatibility you may want to enter a single class first and see if the calculator works.)

Clicking on the "Calc GPA" button, will display a new printable page with your courses and your GPA. If you need to make corrections, make sure you use your web browser's BACK button to return to this page, or you will have to reenter your data (this may not work for some browsers).

If you have more than 50 courses, please calculate and print out the first 50, then return to this page and enter the remainder of your courses on a new form. Once the second page is completed and printed, add the "Total Grade Points" from both pages and divide by the sum of the "Total Units" from both pages. This will be your "Grade Point Average" for all your courses; please write this new combined GPA on your last page.

For more information about grade computation, please consult the General Catalog.
