GPA Calculator

You can locate your GPA by viewing your Unofficial Transcript through MyVWCC.

Calculating Your GPA

To calculate your GPA, multiply the grade value of the course by the credit hours for that course. This will give you the quality/grade points. Divide your cumulative quality/grade points by your cumulative attempted hours to calculate your total GPA.

If you wish to estimate your GPA, you can use the Back to College GPA Calculator.
