Please visit Laurier's GPA Calculator.  If you wish to do it yourself, instructions are below.

How to calculate a What if GPA

MAJOR GPA

Earned Grade Points

X

Y

(needed GPA remaining credits)

=

Credits total times 7.0

(total needed grade points)

Credits Attempted

Remaining Major Credits

Credits total

e.g.

45.0

X

Y (needed GPA)

=

66.5 (9.5 X 7.0)

7.5

2.0

9.5 (7.5+2.0)

66.5-45.0

2.0

Y=

Y= 10.75

A 10.75, an A average is needed for this student to reach a Major GPA of 7.0 without re-takes and/or additional coursework.

How do I know how many earned Grade Points I have?

Add them up manually, or take your Major GPA and multiply it by credits attempted.

How do I know how many credits I have to go?

Check the Program Requirements, Worksheet, or come see us.

Im worried about getting the 5.0 overall. How do I calculate that?

Same as above, but instead of Credits total times 7.0 it will be Credits total times 5.0. Remaining Major Credits would instead be all remaining credits in the degree, not just remaining Major credits.
