Sure, I'd be happy to help you understand the process of calculating your GPA for Samford University!

Samford University calculates GPAs on a 4.0 unweighted scale. This is what you'll need to do to calculate your GPA:

- A = 4 points

- B = 3 points

- C = 2 points

- D = 1 point

- F = 0 points

2. Calculate each of your course grade points by multiplying the points assigned above by the credit hours of the course.

For example, if you took an Algebra course (worth 1 credit hour) and got an A, the grade points for that course would be 4 points (A) x 1 (credit hour) = 4 grade points.

4. Add up the total credit hours for all of your courses.

5. Divide the total grade points you calculated in step 3 by the total credit hours you calculated in step 4.

GPA = Total Grade Points / Total Credit Hours

For example, if you had 100 grade points in total and had taken 25 credit hours of courses, your GPA would be 4.0 (100 grade points ÷ 25 credit hours).

Keep in mind that Samford might recalculate your GPA to exclude certain non-academic courses, such as physical education, driver's education, or similar courses. Check with the admissions office if you are unsure which of your courses might be excluded in the calculation.

Finally, remember that schools like Samford look at your overall application holistically, so a strong GPA, while important, is just one factor among many that will contribute to your application and your chances of being accepted.

Good luck with your application to Samford University!
