How do I calculate the grade point average (GPA) of the courses in my major?

While your cumulative grade point average (GPA) can be found on your transcript, if you want to know the grade point average in your major, you will have to calculate it.

Here's how:

1. List each course required for your major along with its corresponding number of credits.
2. Multiply the number of credits by the numeric grade value (see list below) that you received for the course. This will give you the quality points earned for that course.
4. Divide the total quality points by the total number of credits to get your major GPA.

FOR EXAMPLE...

HIST 106...1 credit...B+... 1 x 3.33 = 3.33
HIST 204...1 credit...A... 1 x 4.00 = 4.00
HIST 211...1 credit...B-... 1 x 2.67 = 2.67
HIST 304...1/2 credit...B... 0.5 x 3.00 = 1.50

Total quality points = 11.5
Total # of credits 3.5
Major GPA = 11.5/3.5 = 3.285714... more specifically 3.29

GRADE CONVERSION FROM LETTER TO NUMERICAL VALUE
A = 4.00
A- = 3.67
B+ = 3.33
B = 3.00
B- = 2.67
C+ = 2.33
C = 2.00
C- = 1.67
D+ = 1.33
D = 1.00
D- = 0.67
F = 0.00

When will my grades for the current semester be posted on Banner Self-Service?

The Registrar's Office runs a process that posts grades to students' transcripts. This is typically done by the end of the grades due date (Note: There may be subsequent posting for any late grades). Until the first posting, no grades for that semester can be seen on your transcript on Banner. Because we are unable to print transcripts once we begin posting grades, we delay this first posting as late as possible to accommodate student transcript requests.
