An Example of how GPA’s are computed

 Course Grade Grade Weight Semester Hours Total Quality Points Biology 101 A 4.0 X 5 = 20.0 Chemistry 101 B+ 3.3 X 3 = 9.9 Chemistry 103 A- 3.7 X 2 = 7.334 English 131 B 3.0 X 3 = 9.0 Sociology 291 C+ 2.7 X 3 = 6.9 Special Topics 201 P n/a 1 (but not counted) n/a TOTALS 16 hrs. 53.1 quality points

The GPA is computed by dividing total quality points by the number of semester hours earned with grade (note that the grade of P is not calculated in the GPA). In this semester, the student’s semester GPA is 3.4 (54.4 quality points/16 semester hours).

Note that grades of P or Credit are not used in computing a GPA.

Factors that may result in a GPA calculation than is different from your transcript

ADEA AADSAS-calculated GPA’s can vary from GPA’s computed by colleges/universities and from applicants’ expectations for many reasons:

• Did you attend more than one college/university? Generally, most colleges and universities do not use

grades earned at previously-attended colleges/universities in the computation of their school’s GPA.

steps outlined in “Reporting Grade Changes.”

• Remember that “quarter hours” and “unit hours” are converted to semester hours for ADEA AADSAS computation. Some applicants have earned credits at two or more colleges/universities that have different academic terms. To compute GPA’s, ADEA AADSAS converts all credit hours earned to semester hours.

What to do if you believe your GPA is not computed correctly

If you still believe your GPA’s are not accurately computed, identify the specific nature of the problem,

(e.g. is a course grade reported incorrectly, is a science grade not properly designated) and notify ADEA Customer Service Representatives. Be as specific as possible. A representative from the Transcript Processing Department will review your inquiry and will contact you.
