How is the GPA calculated from the individual records?

The GPA is a calculation based on all the records that are attached to the Credit Program (e.g. High School Diploma). The calculation is:

Sum of All Records (value of each letter grade times the number of credits) / Total Credits if Letter Grade is included in GPA calculation

The following will help you understand how each letter grade is calculated in the GPA and the credits earned for the Credit Program.
