GPA Calculator

Your CSU “a-g” grade point average (GPA) is calculated based on all grades earned after 9th grade. Credit and No Credit grades are not included in the calculation. Don’t know your current GPA? Find out using the GPA Calculator. For more information regarding admissions eligibility, please visit the Freshman: Admission Requirements and the Firs​t-Time Freshman Guidance pages. Please be advised that due to impaction, many campuses have supplemental admission criteria. You can review campus-specific information at Impacted Undergraduate Majors and Campuses.​

  • Using the chart below, enter the count of each grade you earned in “a-g” courses completed after ninth grade. For example, if you earned four As so far in “a-g” courses taken after ninth grade, enter “4” in the box next to the “A.” Continue entering all grades earned in “a-g” coursework. Ignore a plus or minus in a grade; a B- should be entered as a B, for example.
  • If you’ve taken any approved honors, Advanced Placement (AP), college, or International Baccalaureate (IB) classes in the 10th, 11th or 12th grades, enter the number of honors course grades you have earned that are C or better. The maximum number of honors courses you can use is eight semesters. No more than two approved honors-level courses taken in the 10th grade may be given extra points. Do not enter any count for honors courses with a grade of D or below. Enter one for each semester of approved honors work up to a maximum count of eight.
  • College courses used to meet CSU “a-g” requirements can also result in honors points. But no more than eight honors points may be awarded. A semester grade in a college course should be counted twice. For example, if you earned a B in a biology course at a community college, you would count this B grade twice in your GPA calculation.
