Does anyone know of a GPA calculator that's specifically geared towards Coastal Carolina University's grading system? I'd like to estimate my GPA in a way that's accurate for CCU. Thanks in advance for any recommendations!

While I'm not aware of a GPA calculator specifically tailored for Coastal Carolina University (CCU), you can calculate your GPA using a standard 4.0 scale calculator, which should work for most universities. Here are the basic steps to calculate your GPA using a standard 4.0 scale:

1. Assign each letter grade a numerical value:

- A = 4.0

- A- = 3.7

- B+ = 3.3

- B = 3.0

- B- = 2.7

- C+ = 2.3

- C = 2.0

- C- = 1.7

- D+ = 1.3

- D = 1.0

- F = 0

2. Multiply the numerical value of each grade by the number of credit hours the course is worth.

3. Add up the total weighted points, and then divide that number by the total number of credit hours taken.

For example, let's say you took four courses, each worth 3 credit hours:

- English (A, 3 credit hours): 4.0 x 3 = 12

- Math (B, 3 credit hours): 3.0 x 3 = 9

- Science (C, 3 credit hours): 2.0 x 3 = 6

- History (B+, 3 credit hours): 3.3 x 3 = 9.9

Total weighted points: 12 + 9 + 6 + 9.9 = 36.9

Total credit hours: 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 = 12

Now, divide the total weighted points by the total credit hours: 36.9 / 12 = 3.075

Your estimated GPA would be approximately 3.08.

Please verify with CCU's registrar or admissions office, to see if any variations or specific rules apply to their grading system. But this general process should work at most institutions.

Good luck calculating your GPA!
