Calculate your GPA

Understanding your GPA

The GPA reported on your official UIC transcript displays two digits to the right of the decimal point and is truncated, not rounded.

Four different GPAs display on your Illinois official transcript:

  1. Term GPA—the GPA for your grades for a single semester
  2. Total Institution—the GPA for all courses completed at Illinois
  3. Total Transfer—the GPA for any courses outside of Illinois
  4. Overall—the combined Institution and Transfer GPA

Predicting Your Future GPA

  1. For each course, multiply the grade points defined for the grade (e.g., A = 4.00; refer to our explanation of grades) by the number of credit hours for the course (e.g., 3) to calculate your quality points.
  2. Add all quality points.
  3. Add all GPA hours.
  4. Divide the sum of the quality points by the GPA hours

Example

Course Grade Graade Points GPA Hours Quality Points
HIST 199 S N/A N/A N/A
CHEM 102 B 3.00 3 (3.00 × 3) = 9.00
CHEM 103 A 4.00 1 (4.00 × 1) = 4.00
ECON 100 C 2.00 3 (2.00 × 3) = 6.00
MATH 220 F 0.00 5 (0.00 × 5) = 0.00
CHEM140 CR N/A N/A N/A
TOTAL 12 19

In the example report above, 19 quality points ÷ 12 GPA hours = 1.5833333, giving the student a semester GPA of 1.58.
