All-Institution Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculator Instructions

Use the calculator below to calculate your All-Institution GPA, combining grades earned at multiple institutions. Many departments here at Western consider this GPA when making departmental admissions decisions, as do scholarship granting organizations, and graduate schools.

Note: While this calculator computes an accurate GPA, different academic departments and scholarship granting organizations have specific calculation guidelines that are not captured here. The College of Business and Economics (CBE) at Western is one such example; review the CBE GPA Guidelines online. When in doubt, ask the department.

1. Obtain and review your transcripts from ALL college-level institutions that you have attended.

For each institution attended, you will need to determine the following information:

a. The number of credits attempted and counted towards your GPA. At Western, on your Student Academic History (unofficial transcript) these are labeled as Western GPA Hours. At other institutions you can find this total on your unofficial or official transcript, although they may be labeled as credits or hours.

b. Your cumulative GPA. At Western, this is labeled as your Western GPA. At other institutions you can find this value on your unofficial or official transcript.

2. Enter the information collected from your transcripts into the calculator below.

Include the Institution Name, the number of GPA Hours, and the cumulative GPA, for each institution, including Western. If you attended a semester school, you will need to multiply this number by 1.5 to determine the equivalent number of quarter credits to be entered in the calculator below. For example, if you completed 30 credits at a semester school, 30 x 1.5 = 45. Enter 45 credits into the calculator below.

3. Click Calculate to determine your All-Institution GPA and the total number of credits counted towards your GPA.
