In order to calculate your GPA you must first have access to your academic transcript
If you do not currently have an academic transcript at your disposal you can request one from the Office of
Registrar at the following web address: http://www.slu.edu/Documents/eas/Transcript_Request.pdf

The formula for calculating GPA is as follows:
1. Sum the credit hours for all courses for which the grades are calculated into the GPA
2. Sum the quality points for all courses for which the grades are calculated into the GPA
3. Divide the summed Quality Points by the summed hours to obtain the GPA
