How To Calculate Your Semester Grade Point Average

In order to calculate your overall GPA at Baylor, you will want to go to the Academic Advisement GPA Calculator.

Compute my Semester GPA

Step 1
Obtain a list of your current schedule courses(i.e.-PSY 1305, ENG 1302)
Step 2
Look at the second digit of each course number. This will indicate the number of quality hours for that course.
Step 3
When using the calculator, you will need to enter the number of quality hours for a course and the grade that you think you will receive for that course.
Step 4
Once you have entered all of the quality hours and expected grade values for your courses, click on the COMPUTE button to the right of each row. This will calculate your course GPA.
Step 5
You can then click on the COMPUTE button at the bottom of the GPA calculator. This will compute your expected GPA for the semester. Once you have done this, you may make changes to your expected grade values to compute other GPA options.
