Grade Point Average Calculator

The GPA calculator can help you predict your GPA for the current semester and your cumulative GPA for all the courses you have taken at Loyola. To use the calculator, follow the directions below.

(This calculator is best used with the cumulative GPA, credit hour and quality point information from your Unofficial Transcript. (View your Unofficial Transcript and learn about these terms).

Current Term: Enter the course title, number of credit hours and letter grade (or predicted letter grade) for each course you are currently taking, then the GPA calculator will calculate the number of quality points you will receive for each course.

Note: The calculator is not associated with LOCUS. Its calculations are based only on the data you enter.
