Frequently Asked Questions:

What is a Weighted GPA?

 

Weighted GPA is used by high schools to display a student's accomplishments based on the work achieved during a class or the type of class taken. Students take Honors, AP, Dual Enrollment, or career driven classes receive higher GPA points because it is based on a weighted scale. Regular high school classes are weighted on a 4.0 GPA scale and Honors classes are weighted on a 4.5 GPA scale. Which leaves Dual Enrollment, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate classes to be weighted on a 5.0 GPA scale. 

 

What is a Unweighted GPA?

 

In addition to high schools that your unweighted GPA next to your weighted GPA, colleges only use unweighted GPA. College classes are only weighted on a 4.0 GPA scale across the board. 

 

How to Calculate Weighted GPA?

 

To calculate your weighted GPA, you will need a GPA Scale Conversion chart which will show you exactly how to convert your class grade based on the class type into GPA points. For example a Regular high school class that you received a A+ grade in converts to 4.0 GPA points. Then, you divide the sum of all your GPA class points and divide it by the number of classes. Luckily, you don't have to remember this because your Google Sheet has the GPA Calculator formula embedded!

 

How to Calculate Unweighted GPA?

 

To calculate your unweighted GPA, you will still need a GPA Scale Conversion chart which will show you exactly how to convert your class grade based on the Regular class GPA points. For example a Regular high school class that you received a A+ grade in converts to 4.0 GPA points. Then, you divide the sum of all your GPA class points and divide it by the number of classes. Again, we did this for you so you don't have to!
