Hello, I'm interested in applying to Capital University and I'm not sure how to calculate my GPA on their scale. Can anyone help me understand the process?

Calculating your GPA for Capital University follows a similar process to most colleges and universities in the United States. Capital University uses a 4.0 GPA scale, which assigns a numerical value to each letter grade. Below is a simple breakdown of the grading scale:

- 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

- D-: 0.7

- F: 0.0

To calculate your GPA, follow these steps:

1. Convert each of your letter grades to their corresponding numeric grade value using the scale mentioned above.

2. Multiply the numeric grade value for each course by the number of credit hours assigned to that course. This will give you the "quality points" for each course.

3. Add up the total credit hours for all of your classes.

4. Add up the total quality points for all of your classes.

5. Divide the total quality points by the total credit hours.

Here's a simple example:

Course 1: B (3.0), 3 credit hours

Course 2: A- (3.7), 4 credit hours

Course 3: C+ (2.3), 3 credit hours

Total credit hours: 3 + 4 + 3 = 10

Total quality points: (3.0 x 3) + (3.7 x 4) + (2.3 x 3) = 9 + 14.8 + 6.9 = 30.7

GPA: Total quality points / Total credit hours = 30.7 / 10 = 3.07

In this example, your GPA would be 3.07 on the 4.0 scale. Keep in mind that this calculation assumes Capital University follows a standard 4.0 GPA scale, but individual universities may have slight variations. You can also check the Capital University website or contact their admissions office to confirm their specific GPA calculation method.
