GPA Calculator

Your GPA is calculated using grades, grade points per credit hour, and hours attempted.

Wake Tech's grade point system is shown in the table below. The system applies to all courses except Pre-Curriculum.

Grade Grade points per credit hour Explanation
A 4 Excellent
B 3 Very Good
C 2 Satisfactory
D 1 Poor
F 0 Failing
W 0 Withdrawal (prior to 60%)
WF 0 Withdrawal-Failing(after 60%)
WP 0 Withdrawal-Passing(after 60%)

To use the calculator to determine your GPA for a given semester, enter the letter grade you earned (including WF) and the credit hours for each course taken and click on Calculate.

Then, to update your cumulative GPA, enter your cumulative GPA prior to the current semester along with total credit hours attempted up to that point. When you click on Calculate, your new cumulative GPA will appear, based on your prior GPA and your current semester GPA.

Do not include Pre-Curriculum classes. Credit hours for pre-curriculum courses are not counted in hours attempted, and those grades do not count toward cumulative GPA.

Likewise, courses with grades of NA (never attended), AU (audit), X (challenged), W (withdrawal), or WP (withdrawal-passing) are not considered in hours attempted and are not counted toward cumulative GPA.
