University of South Carolina
Semester and Institutional GPA Calculator

Use our calculators to project your Semester or Institutional GPA. Remember that official grades (not these calculators) are the most accurate resource for grade information.

Grade Point Average Rules

Your grade point average is computed on the basis of all semester hours attempted for credit on a USC campus, except for credit hours carried under the Pass-Fail or audit options. Courses in which a grade of I, S, U, AUD, T or W was earned are NOT considered in computing the GPA.

This calculator is not intended to calculate transfer GPAs.

The semester grade point average is determined by dividing the total number of semester grade points earned by the total number of semester hours attempted for credit. Semester hours attempted on a Pass-Fail or audit basis do not affect your GPA.

NOTE: These calculations are NOT and should not be considered your official final grades or final GPA. Official grades and GPA reports are reported in Self Service Carolina.
