How to Calculate GPA

Calculate my GPA

The online GPA calculator pulls in your current grades. 

There is also a GPA calculator in the BYU mobile app  for iTunes or Android or you calculate it manually using the catalog.

Grade Changes

Grades can change for these reasons:

  • There has been a calculation error in computing the grade.
  • The wrong grade was posted to the grade roll.
  • To change a “T” grade (work in progress).
  • To post a grade if no grade was submitted (NS).
  • To reassess a grade that had no work completed after the deadline.

You should contact your instructor if an incorrect grade was posted. Your instructor(s) will not change a previous grade to a “W” (Official Withdrawal) for any reason. If you had a nonacademic emergency, you should file a petition for withdrawal. You may also work with your instructor on an Incomplete contract to finish your work beyond the semester or term.

Repeating Classes

You can repeat any class if it or a similar class still exists.

  • For classes repeated beginning Fall Semester 2011: Your grades from all of your enrollments of a class count toward your grade point average (GPA) and total credit hours.
  • For classes repeated prior to Fall Semester 2011: Your grade from the most recent enrollment of a class (except for R-suffix courses) counts toward your grade point average (GPA) and total credit hours.

Grade Values

Students often want to know how classes are evaluated and GPA’s are calculated. To see this, please visit the university catalog

There is not an official university grading scale (e.g. 92-100 A, 89-91 A-, etc.). Individual departments may have a specified scale that instructors use.

If a student drops from a class by the add/drop deadline, the permanent record will not show any registration for that class.

BYU also keeps a record of whether or not grades are earned and graded. Earned credits count toward graduation and graded credits are calculated into your GPA.

Earned and Graded Grade Types
Grades Earned Graded
A, B, C, D Yes Yes
E, WE, UW, IE No Yes
P Yes No
W, I, T, NS No No
