To calculate your GPA at Richland College, you will review the grade point value with the attempted hours.

Your GPA is calculated by your grade point value:

  • A = 4 points per credit hour
  • B = 3 points per credit hour
  • C = 2 points per credit hour
  • D = 1 point per credit hour
  • F/WF = 0 points per credit hour

  2. Total your number of grade points
  3. Divide total points by total of all your attempted hours
  4. That's your GPA

For example, Olivia made 1 A, 2 Bs, and 2 Cs her first semester.
