Rules for UC GPA Calculator

  • Your grades A through D are converted to grade points 4 through 1, respectively.
  • Pluses and minuses do not matter: an A+ and an A- are both counted as an A.
  • Only academic "A-G" courses are counted in your GPA. This includes classes like English and music, but not PE. You can look up your high school to see a full list of A-G courses.
  • Only add courses from 10th and 11th grade. You can add courses from the summer before 10th grade and the summer after 11th grade.
  • When choosing between semesters, quarters, trimesters, and years, do not include summer terms. Semester means two terms per year (Fall and Spring), trimester means three terms, and quarter means four terms.
  • California students can find honors courses at by searching for your high school’s name.
  • For non-California students, AP, IB, and transferable college courses are considered honors-level courses, but NOT school-designated honors courses.
  • Honors-level courses are counted as 1 extra point, with a maximum of 8 honors points for 10th and 11th grade, and a maximum of 4 honors points for 10th grade.
  • Honors points are not counted for courses with a grade of D or F.
