It is only an estimate. The GPA estimate that the calculators compute is only to be viewed as a reference. It is not intended to be used for any official purposes (financial aid, graduation, etc.).
Each calculator has different purpose.
- Graduation Calculator: When you enter your desired GPA at graduation, it calculates the average GPA you need to maintain in your remaining terms to achieve that goal.
- Term Calculator: When you enter the grades you expect to earn for your in-progress courses, it calculates your GPA at the end of that term.
- Advice Calculator: When you enter your desired GPA at graduation, it shows the grades you need to earn to achieve that goal. NOTE: We do not recommend you use this calculator.
