What are GPA Calculators and How do I use them?
There are 3 different GPA Calculators that students can utilize, Graduation Calculator,
Term Calculator and Advice Calculator. These calculators are unofficial estimations
and informational only.
The Graduation Calculator option on the GPA Calculator tab will show what average
you will need in your remaining credits to graduate with your desired GPA. Credits
remaining can be determined by subtracting credits applied from credits required.
This information can be found on your degree audit (Worksheet Tab) in the first information
block and is labeled as "Unmet conditions for this set of requirements."
The Term Calculator option will show an estimate of your cumulative GPA. Degree Works
will pull in your current earned credits and GPA and place your in-progress courses
in the table where you can then enter the anticipated grade for each course. You will
then see a revised cumulative GPA based on the estimates you provided.
Remedial courses are not counted toward your GPA. If you are in a remedial course
you must delete it from the table to receive an accurate calculation.
Courses repeated more than once only have one grade (the highest earned) calculated
into a GPA. If you are currently repeating a course your term calculation will not
be accurate. You will see your updated GPA at the end of the semester.
The Advice Calculator option will show various credit and grade scenarios in order
for you to achieve your desired cumulative GPA.
