Some applications ask for a department GPA. This means that you will average all of your grades from classes taken in that department ONLY. This does not go off of your overall GPA on your report card. To figure out the department GPA, use the grade breakdown on your report card.
*High Honor Cords will be automatically be given to students with a cumulative gpa at or above 3.75.
To calculate your GPA per area, assign the appropriate value for each of your grades and then divide by how many grades you’ve added.
(ex: A = 4.0, C+ = 2.33, B- = 2.667; total (8.997) divided by 3 = 2.999 cumulative GPA).
