GPA Calculator for the University of California

This tool will calculate your high school GPA, according to the standards used by the University of California. You will need a copy of your transcript.

Your school uses to assign grades

You’ve earned A grades

You’ve achieved B grades

You’ve gotten C grades

You’ve made D grades

You’ve received F grades

You have grades for honors courses

Rules for calculating GPA

  • Pluses and minuses do not matter. An grade of A+ or A- also counts as an A.
  • Only count courses taken after the 9th grade. If you took a summer class before 10th grade, you should count that.
  • When deciding between semesters, quarters, and trimesters, do NOT count summer school as one term. For example, a trimester system should consist of a Fall trimester, Winter trimester, and Spring trimester. A quarter system should consist of 2 Fall quarters and 2 Spring quarters. A semester system should consist of 1 Fall semester and 1 Spring semester.
  • Honors courses for California students: Get a list of UC honors courses for your high school by going to hs-articulation.ucop.edu/agcourselist and searching for your high school’s name.
  • Honors courses for out of state students: AP courses and IB Higher Level courses are counted as UC honors courses. See more detailed rules on this page.
  • The weighted GPA includes 1 extra point for each grade received in a UC approved honors course.
  • The weighted and capped GPA also includes 1 extra point for each honors grade. However, only up to 8 semesters of honors courses will be awarded honors points. If you have more than 8 semesters of honors grades, then the excess grades will be treated as regular courses. The 8-semester cap is equivalent to 16 quarters or 12 trimesters. Additionally, no more than 4 semesters worth of honors points can be from courses taken in the 10th grade.
  • Do not count honors points for failing grades (D or F).
  • If you failed and/or retook a course, see the Calculating UC GPA FAQ.
  • If you took a-g courses at a community college, include them in your GPA. You should also count community college courses as honors courses if they are eligble for transfer credit. Use this site to look up transfer elibility for California community colleges.

Is my GPA high enough?

Check out the UC Freshmen Admissions Calculator for more information about specific UC schools.

How does this work?

The University of California system has a specific way of determining weighted and capped GPA on a scale from 0 to 4.0, although scores higher than a 4.0 can be attained with honors courses. Each class contributes a number of grade points depending on the grade received. This calculator adds up all of your grade points and takes the average, yielding your GPA.

GPA = (4A + 3B + 2C + 1D + 0F + H) / (A + B + C + D + F)

It's not rocket science, it’s just math! You could, of course, do this on any calculator, but you could come to RogerHub too because it’s cool. (:

Hey Roger,
Here you say that we only count grades after freshmen year. It says on multiple sources that you also exclude your grades from 1st-semester senior year. Is this true?

Roger: In practice, you’ll submit your application before the end of the first semester of your senior year. So, your application won’t contain any of your senior year grades. You do have the option of submitting a mid-year report to the UC’s, which would contain your first semester senior year grades. But this is optional and most students don’t submit it. However, it’s unclear whether the data I used to construct the models in this calculator include senior year grades or not. Before you actually enroll, the UCs will ask you for a copy of your final transcript. So naturally, they’d have all your grades available if they indeed intended to include them in their published GPA statistics.

Can you pls tell me how to calculate if year 10 was semester but then 11 changed to a one year grading system in my school. Meaning; 2 grades for each subject in yr 10, and only 1 for yr 11. How can I calculate UC GPA? Thanks

Roger: I suppose you could just count each of your year 11 grades twice. The UCs don’t provide much guidance for exceptional cases like this.

Hi Roger,

Is the calculation different for international students like me (Canadian)? And do percentages not matter?

Roger: I don’t really know how the UC GPA is calculated for international students, and I haven’t really found any good guidance from the UCs about it. I’d guess that if your transcript has letter grades, then this calculator should work the same.

thanks for the calc! however, seems like it needs an update for factoring in the sat scores, since the new sat splits the scores across math and litt, and separate scores for reading and writing are not available?

also, does this factor in any difference in the requirements across various majors? e.g., would the criteria for some engineering branch be more stringent than say, in some other lot less sought-after branch?

Roger: Yep, the calculator was created for the 2400 point SAT scoring system, and it hasn’t been updated for a while. As for your question about the majors, I identified, for each school, the majors that had a substantially higher or lower acceptance rate when compared to the school as a whole. If you pick one of those majors (for your choice of school), then the calculator will apply a small increase or decrease to your final result. It’s not very scientific, all things considered.

You said it is impossible to achieve a 4.3 or higher capped gpa for UCs... I have a 4.31 as a junior.

Roger: Good point! I should have clarified that I meant your UC GPA upon applying to college. If you get straight A’s, then your capped GPA basically depends on how many total classes you’ve taken. Each additional class brings your GPA down a little.

If I took two years of orchestra, one in 10th grade and one in 11th grade, do the grades for all four semester count toward the GPA? Or just two semesters since the requirement for arts is only one year?

Hi Roger
Is it a 4.4 gpa better than a 4.33?

Roger: Sounds reasonable.

Eric
Sat, 12 Jan 2019 17:56:29 GMT

Taking is less rigorous courseload of 5 a-g classes per year would yield a 4.4 capped weighted UC gpa but isn’t this be viewed as less favorable than 4.33 consisting of 6a-g classes per year?

Roger: Yep, you’re right. My understanding is that the GPA is only used for post-hoc statistics. Admissions should be based holistically on your entire transcript.

Eric
Sat, 12 Jan 2019 17:47:18 GMT

Sorry ,
I mistyped, my question is what is the highest capped. Weighted Uc gpa? How is a 4.4 weighted capped possible?

Roger: I’m fairly certain 4.4 refers to the weighted uncapped GPA. It’s nearly impossible to get much higher than a 4.3 weighted capped GPA with a normal high school courseload.

Eric
Sat, 12 Jan 2019 17:38:51 GMT

Hi Roger,
What is the highest weighted capped Uc gpa? I took 6 a-g courses in 10th and 11th grades and max of 8semesters of AP courses, with all As my weighted Uc gpa is 4.33 but I see the 75% listed for UCB is at 4.4

Roger: Good question! You might guess that 5.0 is the highest weighted and capped GPA. But you could only achieve that by taking fewer than 8 semesters of total courses, and that doesn’t satisfy the minimum A-G course requirements for admission to UCs. Another approach would be to exploit the fact that the UC GPA ignores freshman year grades. But you can’t just take 15 courses freshman year and 1 course sophomore and junior year, because the UCs require minimum numbers of years per A-G subject. But you can actually satisfy all of these requirements by taking standardized exams instead of classes (except for the Geometry requirement and the 4th year of English). So, I suppose the answer really is 5.0, but you’d need to self-study for a bunch of SAT and AP tests and take almost no classes to get there. I don’t really think this is a useful question.

Tommy
Tue, 08 Jan 2019 18:15:36 GMT

Just to be clear, UC do not use plus or minus in the GPA calculation? So a B+ is 3.0 NOT 3.3? Since when did this happen? I remember many moons ago when I applied to UC plus and minus counted or perhaps I am totally wrong?

Roger: My understanding is that pluses and minuses do not count for high school courses (see this FAQ). But once you enroll in a UC school, then a B+ in any of your college courses will be worth 3.3 points.

Hey Roger,

On the UC Davis webpage, I saw that the 25-75th percentiles for GPA are 4.0-4.31. I was wondering if you knew if these numbers are the capped weighted or just normal weighted. My capped weighted is just below the 25th percentile, but my normal weighted is well above the 75th percentile. I’ve had a lot of stress over it, I’d love some help.

Roger: Those sound like uncapped weighted GPAs, but I also can’t find which webpage you saw those numbers on.

Hi,
I was wondering if the GPAs on the UC website are form all 4 years or just weighted and capped from 10-11 grade?

Roger: I think it varies, depending on which website you’re looking at. For example, if the 75th percentile is higher than 4.3, then it’s probably an uncapped GPA. This FAQ says “UC uses all UC-approved a-g courses a student took between the summer before 10th grade through the summer following 11th grade”.

I made some mistakes in my application where I put “H” next to my honors classes but did not register them as honors classes. Instead, I accidentally left it as “NH.” I did this to 5/7 honors classes I took. (I'm stupid for doing this I know) Also, I am taking 2 additional AP courses next semester and did not add that onto my application. How do I adjust this? Does it even matter? Will the UCs be able to figure this out themselves? Will they still calculate it into my GPA? (I'm a CA resident who went to school here) Thank you!

Roger: If you need to make changes to the courses listed on your application, you should send a letter to the “UC Application Center” and describe what needs to be changed. See step 3 of these instructions for details. I did this when I applied to college, and I found the process pretty straightforward.

Are the gpa’s listed on the UC website UC gpa’s or just cumulative from all four years??? Thanks Roger

Roger: I’ve never been to UC Santa Cruz, and I don’t know anything about their computer science program. I think that GPAs listed on freshmen profile (for UC schools) usually refer to the capped and weighted GPA, but it probably varies from case to case.

Hello! Does the UC admission officers only consider grades 10-11 or 10-12? I am currently on a gap year applying to colleges.

Roger,

I am receiving conflicting information from D. Hasson with Admissions from San Diego State University that a total of TWO honors points from only two semesters (not two years/four semesters); this conflicts with information on your website.

Do all UC and CSU schools calculate the GPA the same way?

I know a maximum of eight honors points can be added; however, I thought two year-long courses (which would equate to four semesters and a total of four points) from 10th grade were allowed.

Roger: Check out this FAQ. My understanding is that there’s a cap of 8 semesters of honors courses, as well as a cap of 4 semesters of honors courses taken in the 10th grade. The calculator mentions both of these points (see point #7). Hope this helps!

Roger: Great question. I have no idea. But I imagine that they’d ask your school for guidance interpreting your transcript. High schools in California provide extensive information about their curriculum and grading system to the UCs, so it’s not a stretch to think that out of state schools might as well.

It is difficult for me to say that the University of California system is preferable, since state schools all over the United States tend to have a more profitable program in spite of their reputation.

Hey Roger! So i was a little confused on the honors points part. Since my school uses semester grades, and I've taken 6 AP classes, 1 Community college class, and1 uc approved honors class, would I type in 8 (for 8 total classes) into the honors classes box, or 16 (for 16 semesters of honors classes)?

Thanks! (Ur famous in my school btw for your final grade calculator lol)

Roger: Since your school assigns a grade per semester, you should measure everything in terms of semesters. So, 16 is correct.

Roger: Sounds pretty good to me. Which UCs does she want to attend? Some of them have higher standards for admission than others.

This is brilliant. Thank you so much. I can't tell you how many times I've sat down and calculated out my daughter's current, past, 'what-could-be', and 'what if' GPA. This is going to save me so much time in the future. You are now my personal hero. Thanks again! :)

Roger: Glad you found this useful!

Hi Roger,
Is there a deadline for including UC-approved online classes in the GPA?
I just finished the 11th grade and currently taking two online classes during the summer. Since the UC application deadline is November 30, can I include the classes if I don't finish them until let us say late October? Or do I have to finish them before the school start in late August?

Roger: I don’t know, but I imagine that you can ask whoever runs your online class to send a copy of your transcript to the UCs, in which case it should be available well before the admissions deadline. The UC application will also ask you directly for a list of courses you took and grades you received, so you’ll have an opportunity to present it there.
