Hey everyone! I am applying to Howard University and I need help figuring out what my GPA would be on their scale. Is there a specific calculator or method I should use to recalculate my GPA for Howard? Thanks!

Hey there! Although Howard University doesn't provide its own GPA conversion calculator, you can still estimate your GPA on a 4.0 scale. Most U.S. universities, including Howard, use a 4.0 scale when evaluating applicants' GPAs. Here's a general method for converting your GPA to a 4.0 scale:

1. Make a list of all your graded courses and their respective credit hours. Include both weighted and unweighted grades.

A+ = 4.0, 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

3. Multiply each converted grade by the number of credit hours for the corresponding course.

4. Sum the results from step 3.

5. Add up the total number of credit hours.

6. Divide the sum from step 4 by the total number of credit hours from step 5.

Please note that weighted courses usually have an additional 1.0 or 0.5 added to the grade point value, depending on your school's policy (e.g., A = 5.0, A = 4.5, A- = 4.2 for a weighted A in an AP or honors course). You'll need to account for this when recalculating your GPA.

Keep in mind that this is a general estimation and Howard's admissions team may evaluate your GPA with a slightly different process. They will also consider your overall academic profile, including the rigor of your courses and your performance in them, rather than just focusing on the GPA number.

Good luck with your application to Howard University!
