Calculating Your EngineeringCAS GPAs

If your transcript doesn't report your grades in numeric grade values or your credits in semester hours, then you must convert your courses and recalculate your GPA for the GPA Entries section. Each A-F or 0-100 grade must first be converted to a EngineeringCAS numeric grade value, then multiplied by the attempted credits. The resulting product is Quality Points. 

Your total Quality Points are then divided by your Attempted Credits to determine your GPA.

Non-graded credits are not included in your GPAs. Non-graded credits are earned credits for which you did not receive actual letter grades (e.g., advanced placement credits, "pass" or "satisfactory" credits, college board AP exams, etc.).

EngineeringCAS calculates all GPAs in semester hours. Convert any courses that were completed in quarter hours to semester hours. The conversion ratio is 1.0 quarter hour = 0.667 semester hours.

If necessary, review Grade Values Charts to convert grade values to the EngineeringCAS numeric grade value. Use the GPA Calculator to recalculate your GPA.
