    Steps to Compute Cumulative GPA

    These are steps to calculate the cumulative GPA score.

    • Check the semester GPA scores and credit hours.
    • Multiply the semester GPA with the credit hours to get the total credit points.
    • Find the total of credit hours and credit points to get the cumulative total credit points.
    • Divide the total credit points by the credit hours to check the cumulative GPA.


    Calculate the cumulative GPA for 4 semesters.

    Semester Name GPA Credit Hours
    Semester A 3.8 12
    Semester B 4.1 12
    Semester C 3.5 10
    Semester D 4.6 11


    Given that,

    Semester A: 3.8 GPA for 12 credit hours

    Semester B: 4.1 GPA for 12 credit hours

    Semester C: 3.5 GPA for 10 credit hours

    Semester D: 4.6 GPA for 11 credit hours

    Calculate the total points earned for every semester.

    Semester A: 3.8 x 12 = 45.6 total points

    Semester B: 4.1 x 12 = 49.2 total points

    Semester C: 3.5 x 10 = 35 total points

    Semester D: 4.6 x 11 = 50.6 total points

    Find the sum of credit hours

    12 + 12 + 10 + 11 = 45

    Also, get the sum of all total points

    45.6 + 49.2 + 35 + 50.6 = 180.4

    Divide cumulative points by total credit hours

    180.4/45 = 4.00

    So, the cumulative GPA is 4.0.
