Your GPA in Class-Web represents coursework completed in the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District but you may need to calculate and report your gpa based on courses taken from all colleges attended, just CSU transferable courses, or just for the prerequisite requirements for a program you are applying. Below are some gpa calculators as well as an overview on calculating Your GPA.

GPA Calculators

Each letter grade you earn in a class you take has a point value attributed to it. Your grade point average (GPA) is the total amount of grade points earned divided by the total amount of units with those letter grades. Your grade point average may range from 0.0 to 4.0.

Total Grade Points divided by Total Units = GPA

The value for each letter grade is as follows:

A 4
B 3
C 2
D 1
F 0
W, P, NP, AR No Value because it is not a grade

Your total grade points is calculated by multiplying the number of class units attempted by the value associated with each grade earned. Here's an example:

(Point Value x Units)

Mth 43 B 3 4 12
Engl 1A A 4 3 12
His 7 F 0 3 0
Chem 31 C 2 4 8

TOTALS 14 UNITS 32 GRADE PTS

Your GPA is then determined by dividing the total grade points by the total units attempted.

 TOTAL GRADE POINTS DIVIDED BY TOTAL UNITS = GPA 32 ÷ 14 = 2.286 GPA

Converting Semester and Quarter Units

The GPA should be calculated based on the same type of units. That is, if you have coursework that is in semester and quarter units, you need to convert one into the other. To convert quarter units into semester units, take your quarter units and divide it by 1.5. To convert semester units into quarter units, take your semester units and multiply by 1.5. Here's an example:

B 3 3 9
B 3 3 9
A 6 quarter units ÷ 1.5 = 4 semester units 4 16
C 3 2 6
TOTALS 13 UNITS   40 GRADE POINTS
TOTAL GRADE POINTS (40) DIVIDED BY TOTAL UNITS (13) = 3.08 GPA

Calculating Different Kinds of GPA

Universities may ask for your gpa in transferable classes only. Some may want your gpa in a certain category or list of classes to determine eligibility and competitiveness. Some examples are:

• CSU East Bay Nursing wants to see a 3.0 gpa for the eight prerequisite courses and a 3.0 for just the four science prerequisites.
• To qualify for UC Davis Transfer Admission Guarantee into the Computer Science major, students need to have a 3.4 UC transferable gpa.

You can use the above steps to calculate a gpa for any category of courses to see how you are meeting requirements.
