# Texas State University GPA calculator?

Hey guys! Is there a specific GPA calculator or method that Texas State University uses to calculate our GPA? I want to make sure I'm calculating mine accurately for my application. Thanks!

Hey there! Texas State University calculates your high school GPA for application purposes using its own method, which considers certain core courses. Here's a quick explanation of the process:

1. First, they look at your core courses in English, math, science, social studies, and a foreign language.

2. For each course, assign a numerical value based on the letter grade you received: A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0.

3. If you took any honors, AP, or IB classes, add a weight to the corresponding grade: +1 for an honors course; +2 for AP or IB courses.

4. Ensure that you don't exceed the maximum value of 6 for a weighted course (e.g., an 'A' in an AP course will be 4+2=6, not 7).

5. Calculate the weighted GPA for each core course by multiplying the assigned value by the number of credit hours (usually 0.5 or 1.0).

6. Add up all the weighted GPAs for each core course, and then divide the sum by the total number of credit hours to obtain your final weighted GPA.

Keep in mind that this method is focused on Texas State's application evaluation process and might not be applicable elsewhere. Good luck with your application!
