Semester and Cumulative GPA Calculator
This calculator will compute your GPA for a single
semester or, if you know your current GPA and total number of credits, it will
compute your cumulative GPA including these current grades. It should be
self-explanatory and you can use either upper- or lower-case letters for the
grades. It will also compute your new GPA after a semester's grades,
providing you know your current GPA and the number of credits you've

Target GPA Calculator
This calculator will tell you what GPA you will need for your next semester, year, etc. to reach a GPA goal. You need to know your current GPA and the number of credits you've already completed. Then choose a target GPA and a number of credits in which to attain that target!
Course-Repeat GPA Calculator
This calculator will allow you to compute the effect of retaking a course with the new grade replacing the original one. Note: If you retake a course, do not list that course in the Cumulative GPA Calculator -- that calculator will just add it as if it is a new course. To find you actual new GPA, use the Cumulative GPA Calculator inputting the non-repeated courses and then use this one to see the effect of the repeated course. Here you need to know your current GPA and the number of credits you've completed, and, of course, the number of credits and the two grades (as always, you can input either upper- or lower-case grades) for the course in question. Before deciding to re-take a course, please review St Francis College’s course repeat policy which is reprinted below the calculator.
Right now, you can only calculate one course at a time, though of course, by using the calculator sequentially, you can see the effect of repeating several courses.
St Francis College Course Repeat Policy: Students are allowed to repeat courses and attempt to earn a higher grade for classes taken at the College; students are encouraged to repeat any course(s) they have failed as soon as the course is again offered. The policy for the computation of the quality-point index changed for courses repeated in the fall 2004 semester or later. Effective fall 2004, when a course has been attempted more than once, only the last grade received for that course will be used to compute the cumulative quality-point index. The previous grade(s) will remain on the transcript, but will not be calculated as part of the cumulative index. Full tuition is charged each time a course is repeated, but credit for a given course may be earned only once,even if the course is passed more than once. When a repeated course is failed, any previously earned credit for that course is lost. Only the most recent grade earned in a repeated course counts towards the cumulative grade-point average, even if the most recent grade is lower than one previously received for that course. The grades for all attempts of a course taken for credit appear on the student's transcript.
New grade scheme using minus(-) grades effective Fall 2009.
The above calculations do not replace the information listed on a transcript.
The GPA listed on the St.Francis College transcript is your official GPA.
